    In this paper, a load dispatch model is developed for the system consisting of both thermal generators and wind turbines. The probability of stochastic wind power is included in the model as a constraint. This strategy, referred to as the here-and-now approach, avoids the probabilistic infeasibility appearing in conventional models. It is shown that, based on the presented model, the impacts of st...

    This paper presents the dynamic-stability analyzed results of an offshore solar-concentrated ocean thermal energy conversion (SC-OTEC) system connected to an onshore power grid through undersea cables. The complete dynamic system equations of the studied SC-OTEC system are established under three-phase balanced conditions. A power system stabilizer (PSS) is designed using modal control theory to o... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a stochastic optimization algorithm that aims to minimize the expectation of the system power losses by controlling wind turbine (WT) power factors. This objective of the optimization is subject to the probability constraints of bus voltage and line current requirements. The optimization algorithm utilizes the stochastic models of wind power generation (WPG) and load demand to ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents operation and control strategies of an offshore wind farm interconnected to a high-voltage dc (HVDC) system. The offshore wind farm composed of variable speed wind turbines driving permanent magnet synchronous generators is considered in this study, based on dc-bus concept. The HVDC transmission system based on a three-level neutral point clamped voltage source converter (VSC) ... View full abstract»

    Superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) is known to be a very good energy storage device. This article provides an overview and potential applications of the SMES technology in electrical power and energy systems. SMES is categorized into three main groups depending on its power conditioning system, namely, the thyristor-based SMES, voltage-source- converter-based SMES, and current-source-c...

    This work presents design and experimentation of a full passive wind turbine system without the active electronic part (power and control). The efficiency of such a device can be obtained only if the system design parameters are mutually adapted through an integrated optimal design method. This approach, based on multiobjective optimization, aims at concurrently optimizing the wind power extractio... View full abstract»
