    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (399 KB)

    Summary form only given. Some of the problems encountered in the three phases of power system restoration are briefly presented. The three restoration phases are: planning for restart and reintegration of the bulk power supply, actions during system degradation for saving and retaining critical sources of power, and load restoration when the power system has stabilized. In the planning phase, offl... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (402 KB)

    What happens between the time a system operator runs security analysis and the system needs to be restored. Obviously this is the time of chaos when security measures have not been sufficient, or some overwhelming event occurs and the power system blacks out. This is the period of time, which most operations systems today are not prepared for. The power system is coming down around the operator an... View full abstract»

    The massive 14 August 2003 power outage evoked eerie reminders of what shook our world on September 11 2001. While early reports indicated that there was no apparent evidence of terrorism in this outage or in blackouts in the UK and Italy. The UK experienced a blackout in south London and surrounding area on August 28, southern Sweden and parts of Denmark on September 23 and Italy on September 28.... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (606 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    With the increase of power demand and the progress of power industry deregulation, the transmission and distribution systems will have more complicated problems by the influence of curtailing investment and the NIMBY phenomena in overall power systems. [(Pierluigi, L and Andrea, M, 2002) and (Siberglitt, R, et al., 2002)] It is expected that the route length per MW demand of South Korea will decre... View full abstract»

  • Feeder switch currents during load transfer

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):28 - 31 Vol.1
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (493 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Load transfer from an overloaded feeder to a neighboring lightly loaded feeder is obtained by closing the tie switch between the two feeders, followed by opening one of the sectionalizing switches along the overloaded feeder. During such a time interval, the resulting loop operation may (under some extreme cases) result in excessive current flow through the sectionalizing switch. Such a case can l... View full abstract»

    This paper describes how to precisely coordinate distribution feeder automatic-circuit reclosers using cooling-factor data that accounts for the heating and cooling of source-side or load-side fuses throughout the recloser's operating sequence. This method yields results that are more accurate than other coordination methods commonly employed. Different coordination methods are discussed in this p... View full abstract»

    We identify three fundamental issues underlying many problems in power systems today: distributed computing, communications, and data integration. We review the characteristics of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems (MAS) technologies and argue that MAS offer a modular, extensible, flexible, and integrated approach to address all three of these issues and the problems resulting from them.

    On-line diagnostics and on-line condition monitoring are important functions within the operation, control and management of power systems. Extensive research activities have led to the development of intelligent system techniques that support these functions. However, experience has shown that often more than one intelligent system technique is required to perform the diagnostic or monitoring fun... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the capabilities offered by multiagent system technology in the operation of a microgrid. A microgrid is a new type of power system, which is formed by the interconnection of small, modular generation to low voltage distribution systems. Microgrids can be connected to the main power network or be operated autonomously, similar to power systems of physical islands. The use of MA... View full abstract»

    Structurally, an agent is a bundle of sensors, decision-makers and actuators. Behaviorally, an agent is a mapping from an in-space (the set of things the agent can sense) to an out-space (the set of things the agent can affect). Cells, ants, computer programs, robots and people are examples of agents. Larger agents (multi-agent systems) are organizations of lesser agents. Immune systems, nervous s... View full abstract»
