  • An ensemble based data mining model for contingency analysis of power
           system under STLO

    • Authors: Ravi V. Angadi, J. Alamelu Mangai, V. Joshi Manohar, Suresh Babu Daram, Paritala Venkateswara Rao
      Pages: 349 - 358
      Abstract: In a large, interconnected power system, contingency analysis is a useful tool for pinpointing the potential consequences of post-event scenarios on the system's safety. In this work, the Newton-Raphson technique is applied to every single outage of a transmission line to compute the load flows. For the static security classification of the power system, the line voltage stability performance index (LVSI) is used. There are three levels of static security of power system namely: non-critical (the least severe), semi-critically insecure (the next lowest severe), and critical (the next highest severe). The various data mining techniques such as decision trees, bagging-based ensemble methods, and boosting-based ensemble methods were applied to assess the severity of the line under various loading and contingency conditions. Test systems based on the IEEE 30 bus system were used with the proposed machine learning classifiers. The experimental results proved that bagging based ensemble method provided better accuracy compared to the decision tree and the AdaBoost ensemble method for predicting the power system security assessment. The bagging-based ensemble method has a predictive accuracy of 85% and an AUC of 0.94.

  • Improving fault identification in smart transmission line using machine
           learning technique

    • Authors: Radhika Venkutuswamy, Baskaran Kaliyaperumal
      Pages: 359 - 366
      Abstract: In this work inevitable for power transmission boards such as Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (TANGEDCO) to look for a low-cost communication system with low power usage and to improve supply reliability, to transmit reliable fault information back to the control centre in real time. This work aims to design an automated and effective fault identification and position system for all overhead power transmission network networks using all current fault indicator technologies, machine learning methods, and commercially tested communication technology to easily and reliably pin a transmission system's flawed point parts. This will help to people avoid touching the electrical wire and prevent electrical shocks and current wastage as well. Smart transmission lines have played a decisive role in developing human protection and preventing current wastage. The transmission line is opened and the state of the line is evaluated, and the information goes to electrical board (EB) office. The system monitors the data by sending the alert message to the person responsible for the GPS location, either via SMS or BUZZER, or by displaying the alert message lives. Transmission line distribution is broad and most of them are spread around the geographical environment.

  • Power factor improvement using silicon based switching devices for
           changing load parameters

    • Authors: Popuri Rajani Kumari, Kasula Rajasri, Tadi Diwakara Subba Reddy, Ambarapu Sudhakar, Bodapati Venkata Rajanna
      Pages: 367 - 372
      Abstract: Systems power factor provides information on how effectively it uses the electrical power being provided to hold out real work. Losses rise as a results of poor power factor, and therefore the utility is penalized. In general, inductive loads, which are reactive in nature, make up AC loads. As a result, loads require and consume reactive power from the supply source which leads to excessive voltage drop in the line if they draw a lot of lagging current from the source, which could potentially result in the line's voltage collapsing if the drop is too high. When inductors cause a phase difference between voltage and current, the information is sent to the micro-controller, where the program takes control and activates the right number of opto-isolators interfaced to the triac silicon-based semiconductor device at its output to bring shunt capacitors into the load circuit to improve power factor to the desired range Semiconductors such as silicon or germanium are generally used for making triac. The most commonly used is silicon, due to its high abundance and the fact that it can operate at a higher temperature than germanium.

  • Optimal power dispatch for day-ahead power system operation considering
           demand elasticity

    • Authors: Pansa Kaikrathok, Keerati Chayakulkheeree
      Pages: 373 - 383
      Abstract: This paper proposes the optimal power dispatch (OPD) considering price-based demand response (PDR). In the proposed framework, the nodal spot price (NSP) is use as a price signal to the consumers. In the proposed method, the optimal real power dispatch is solved by quadratic programming (QP) to minimize the total operating cost and obtain the NSP components. Consequently, demand elasticity (DE) is applied to estimate the system demand for more accurate day-ahead operations. In the DE matrix, the self-DEs represent the consumer consumption of hour h in response to the NSP of that hour. Meanwhile, the cross-DEs represent the response of consumer consumption of hour h to the NSP of other hours. The algorithm was tested with the IEEE 30-bus system with several cases of demand elasticity. The results show that the proposed algorithm can incorporate price elasticity of demand into day-ahead scheduling and effectively minimize total operating costs. The simulation study shown that, the operating cost can be reduced by 0.33-0.695% with self-DE of -0.1~-0.2, by reducing the consumption respected to the NSP. Meanwhile, when applying cross-DE, the operating cost can be reduced by 0.015% under the same daily consumption with the consumer’s load shifting respected to NSP.

  • High voltage DC-DC converter with standalone application

    • Authors: Thiruveedula Madhu Babu, Kalagotla Chenchireddy, Jakkani Rohini, Mesaragandla Sai Suhas, Dara Ajitesh, Kanaparthi Rahul
      Pages: 384 - 390
      Abstract: Designing DC-DC converters involves many voltage lift techniques. These techniques have been encouraged for their credible advantages. Most voltage lifting methods are applied in many areas of automotive, motor drives, telecom and electronic welfare in military applications. Voltage lifting techniques are known for their high voltage transfer gain and high efficiency. Ultra-lift converter yields very high output transfer gain with geometric progression compared to other voltage lift techniques such as super lift converters and classical boost converters. It also offers reduced size and improved efficiency when compared. In this proposed method ultra-lift converter operation is analyzed with continuous conduction mode.

  • Dual axis solar tracking system

    • Authors: Mugachintala Dilip Kumar, Tenugu Manish Kumar, Kongari Akshay, Sowdapuram Yashwanth Kumar, Udutha Vikas
      Pages: 391 - 398
      Abstract: Now a days, many people use solar photovoltaic systems since they generate efficient and clean energy. Polycrystalline and monocrystalline silicon modules are currently the most widely used products in the solar industry. Aside from possessing a flawless lattice structure, a high level of material purity, a low grain boundary energy, a weak internal resistance, and a high level of efficiency, monocrystalline silicon cells also have a uniform colour and a lack of spots, which contribute to its good aesthetic appeal. By placing the solar panels at the precise angle and direction specified by the motion of the sun, the system's efficiency can be increased. The solar tracking system for this research project uses LDR sensors that are connected to a microcontroller to track the sun's horizontal and vertical axes, while DHT11 and rain sensors are used to track the weather. This study offers a method for repositioning a solar array so that it faces the sun at all times. Since solar modules effectively convert sunlight into electricity, they are helpful solutions to the problem of power generation in remote areas. A microprocessor is used in the construction of such a system to operate a motor and sensor.

  • Design and performance test of series underwater Savonius rotors with
           horizontal axis

    • Authors: Chandra Buana, Jumadi Tangko, Muhammad Ruswandi Djalal, Lewi Lewi, Ardaniah Ardaniah, Nurrafii Al Mukhtaram
      Pages: 399 - 407
      Abstract: The energy of river water flow or irrigation canals can be utilized by using a horizontal axis Savonius turbine, which converts low-speed river flow into electrical power with good design. The design of this turbine needs to pay attention to several parameters, namely, the deflector angle, the number of blades, the diameter and thickness of the blades, and the diameter and thickness of the end plates. However, the problem usually encountered is imperfect turbine construction due to the large drag force that occurs so that the power generated is low. Based on this background, it is proposed to manufacture and test the performance of a series Savonius underwater rotors with a horizontal axis. The research results found that the generator voltage without load was 25.6 V when the turbine only rotated at 47.2 rpm, whereas when under load, the average power produced was 8.5 watts with an average turbine speed of 31 rpm. The highest efficiency value on the rotor is 86.73%, with a torque value of 3.36 at a turbine speed of 29.9 rpm. This indicates that the tool can generate large torque at low speeds.

  • Effect of supply voltage variations on single-phase capacitor clamped
           multilevel inverter fed induction motor drive

    • Authors: Gerald Chidozie Diyoke, Candidus Ugwuoke Eya
      Pages: 408 - 415
      Abstract: This article presents the effect of supply voltage variations on single-phase capacitor-clamped multilevel inverter-fed induction motor drives. This research is tailored at determining the best torque value and speed to attain a stable state under input voltage variation and minimum time response to realize low percentage harmonic distortions. The effect of constant power quality disturbance harms the performance and behavior of asynchronous motors based on harmonic contents and other energy source integrations. The multilevel inverter has shown good performance in motor drives. This paper deals with the effect of input voltage variations on a single-phase multilevel capacitor-clamped inverter for asynchronous induction motor drives. A five-level capacitor-clamped inverter with an in-phase disposition pulse width modulation technique is adopted. Four high-frequency triangular carrier signals are generated and compared with a reference sinusoidal signal. As a result of this approach, the inverter switches firing signals are generated. The open-loop model is designed and simulated utilizing MATLAB/Simulink and results based on different values of supply voltage are presented. The current and voltage total harmonic distortions (THDs) obtained are 4.97% and 4.46% respectively at the best operating voltage of 400 V and at maximum torque of 47 Nm.

  • A novel voltage lifting technique of switched-inductor cell based modified
           LUO converter topology for water pumping system

    • Authors: Aseela Swetha, Balasubramanian Baskaran, P. Duraipandy
      Pages: 416 - 428
      Abstract: The persistent exhaustion of traditional energy sources with their impacts on the environment has been initiating a significant interest in a selection of renewable-energy sources (RES) based water-pumping system. Among several renewable sources, solar-PV is the most promising and practical source for water-pumping applications that can be easily installed on a building's roof. The available solar-PV energy is integrated to AC electric motor through front-end DC-DC boost converter topology. Among the various DC-DC converter topologies, a novel switched-inductor type modified LUO converter has been proposed for solar-PV powered water pumping system. The proposed switched-inductor type modified LUO (SI-MLUO) converter have simple structure which delivers high voltage gain with low leakage currents, low current ripples, reduced voltage spikes, low dv/dt stress and high efficiency over the several conventional DC-DC converters. The operating modes and performance of proposed SI-MLUO converter topology is verified by using MATLAB/Simulink tool, simulation results are validated with conventional topologies.

  • Bidirectional Controller Supported Inductively Coupled Dual Buck converter
           based DSTATCOM with Passive Filter for PQ Improvement

    • Authors: Mrutyunjaya Mangaraj, Rohan Vijay Thakur, Sanjay Kumar Mishra
      Pages: 429 - 440
      Abstract: This research paper explains about the bidirectional controller (BC) supported inductively coupled dual buck converter (IC-DBC) based distributed static compensator (DSTATCOM) with passive filter (PF) for 3- 3-wire (3P3W) power distribution system (PDS). The most significant concern in the PDS is power quality (PQ) control. Hence, innovative approach is proposed by considering concept and benefits of BC, inductive coupled filtering transformer (IFCT), passive filter and dual buck converter. The system equivalent circuit for IC-DBC based DSTATCOM is realized by considering impedance of transformer & direct coupled dual buck converter (DC-DBC) based DSTATCOM to disclose the filtering mechanism. The supremacy of the proposed DSTATCOM is introduced by comparing its simulation outcomes with DC-DBC based DSTATCOM and IC-DBC based DSTATCOM in terms of better harmonics curtailment, power factor advancement, load balancing & reduced DC link voltage compared to other approaches as per IEEE standard

  • Ternary genetic algorithm for load dynamic balancing in low voltage
           three-phase 400 V networks

    • Authors: Rahim Ildarabadi, Mohammad Hasan Nikkhah, Hossein Lotfi, Mahmoud Zadehbbagheri, Tole Sutikno
      Pages: 441 - 450
      Abstract: In three-phase low voltage networks, the random behavior of single-phase loads and also their placement in different parts of single-phase feeders, leads to load imbalance in these networks. Unbalanced load causes losses and voltage drop in three-phase feeders. In this paper, using a different proposed approach based on genetic algorithm, N loads are spread over the grid phases so that the minimum current difference between the phases is formed and the ground current approaches zero. The proposed method is compared with the random load distribution method and the results are analyzed. Among the most important results obtained, we can point out the difference in the calculation time of the two methods by reaching an optimal value, and the calculation speed of the proposed method is significantly better. The proposed method can be an effective tool for dividing the load on different phases of the network in order to prevent imbalance.

      Abstract: The presented methodology enables determining induced currents and voltages relevant to the correct estimation of security conditions required in operating and maintenance of the metal installations surrounding high-voltage distribution cable lines. It is based on the on-site measurements of currents appearing in two phase conductors of the considered cable line during a simulated ground fault in the supplied substation. Their values are utilized to compensate for the deficiency of all relevant but unknown data concerning the surrounding metal installations. It was done by introducing an equivalent cable shield substituting, from the standpoint of inductive influence, all surrounding metal installations. Here is shown that this equivalent shield can be determined in such a way that it becomes identical from the standpoint of its appearance to the actual cable line shield but with a changed value of its longitudinal resistance. When this value is determined for single-core cables belonging to a certain cable line it becomes possible to determine the actual reduction factor, inductive influence, and sequence impedance of the considered cable line by using a standard and well-known calculation procedure.

  • Development of microfluidic device and electronic infusion system to
           fabricate microfiber of alginate and carbon nanotube

      Abstract: A novel microfluidic device and electronic infusion system for carbon nanotube-calcium chloride alginate microfibers are presented in this study. The microfluidic device was designed using Google SketchUp and 3D printing, and the electronic infusion system-controlled alginate solution flow to the calcium chloride jar—the silicon-PDMS microfluidic device produced calcium alginate microfibers with carbon nanotubes. The device to emulsify the two fluids was modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics. The microfluidic device and calcium chloride jar received juice from the syringe pump via a high-flow infusion pump (100, 150, and 200 rpms). Field emission scanning electron microscopes (FE-SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Raman spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) detected highly concentrated microfibers with sizes from 10 to 100 um. I-V characterization showed that sodium alginate's carbon nanotubes at 5%, 6%, and 7% produced fiber sizes between 16.6 and 30 ums. Compared to pure alginate microfibers, those with carbon nanotubes and calcium chloride had higher mechanical strength and electrical conductivity. This study shows that the developed system can produce advanced microfibers with improved properties for various applications.
