    Effect of Load on Transient Performance of Unearthed and Compensated Distribution Networks

    Nehmdoh A. Sabiha*, Hend I. Alkhammash

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.28, No.3, pp. 769-784, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.016752

    Abstract The maximum temperature that cable insulation can withstand determines the maximum load that the cable conductor can carry, which is called cable ampacity. However, a temperature far from this value under normal load conditions affects the transients due to earth faults in the distribution network. Accordingly, error estimation in the fault location occurs, and the smart grids do not accept such errors. Considering heterogenous unearthed and compensated distribution networks, the temperature rise in different underground cables is estimated under different load conditions. These loads are full load, three quarters (3/4) load, one half (1/2) load,… More >

    Earth Fault Management for Smart Grids Interconnecting Sustainable Wind Generation

    Nagy I. Elkalashy*, Sattam Al Otaibi, Salah K. Elsayed, Yasser Ahmed, Essam Hendawi, Ayman Hoballah

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 477-491, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.016558

    Abstract In this study, the active traveling-wave fault location function is incorporated into the management of earth faults for smart unearthed and compensated distribution networks associated with distributed renewable generation. Unearthed and compensated networks are implemented mainly to attain service continuity, specifically during earth faults. This advantage is valued for service continuity of grid-interconnected renewable resources. However, overcurrent-based fault indicators are not efficient in indicating the fault path in these distribution networks. Accordingly, in this study, the active traveling-wave fault location is complemented using distributed Rogowski coil-based fault passage indicators. Active traveling waves are injected by… More >

    Research on Distribution Network Full Cost-Benefit Optimization Considering Different Renewable Energy Penetration

    Tanzhong Fu1,2,3, Yu Xue1,*, Tancai Xia1, Wang Jing1, De Gejirifu1

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.6, pp. 397-411, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.011633

    Abstract To further study the impact of renewable energy penetration on the technical transformation of distribution networks. Based on the output power characteristics of wind power and photovoltaics, a renewable energy grid-connected capacity model and a distribution network full cost-benefit model were constructed. Based on this, to maximize the comprehensive income of the distribution network and the renewable energy penetration rate, to establish the technical reform optimization model and search for the optimal solution through the improved NSGA-II algorithm. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed model was verified by setting up three scenarios of simultaneous wind More >

    The Optimization Study about Fault Self-Healing Restoration of Power Distribution Network Based on Multi-Agent Technology

    Fuquan Huang1, Zijun Liu1, Tinghuang Wang1, Haitai Zhang2, *, Tony Yip3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.65, No.1, pp. 865-878, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.010724

    Abstract In order to quickly and accurately locate the fault location of the distribution network and increase the stability of the distribution network, a fault recovery method based on multi-objective optimization algorithm is proposed. The optimization of the power distribution network fault system based on multiagent technology realizes fast recovery of multi-objective fault, solve the problem of network learning and parameter adjustment in the later stage of particle swarm optimization algorithm falling into the local extreme value dilemma, and realize the multi-dimensional nonlinear optimization of the main grid and the auxiliary grid. The system proposed More >
