  • Detailed Primary and Secondary Distribution System Model Enhancement Using
           AMI Data

      Abstract: Reliable and accurate distribution system modeling, including the secondary network, is essential in examining distribution system performance with high penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs). This paper presents a highly automated, novel method to enhance the accuracy of utility distribution feeder models to capture their performance by matching simulation results with corresponding field measurements. The method is demonstrated using an actual feeder from an electrical utility with high penetration of DERs. The method proposed uses advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) voltage and derived active power measurements at the customer level, and data acquisition systems (DAS) measurements at the feeder-head, in conjunction with an AC optimal power flow (ACOPF) to estimate customer active and reactive power consumption over a time horizon, while accounting for unmetered loads. The ACOPF uses the measured voltage magnitudes, derived active power measurements, and the feeder head measurements to obtain a complete active power and reactive power capture of the feeder loads. Additionally, the method proposed estimates both voltage magnitude and angle for each phase at the unbalanced distribution substation. The accuracy of the method developed is verified in two stages: by comparing the time-series power flow results obtained from the enhancement algorithm with OpenDSS results and with the field measurements available. The proposed approach seamlessly manages the data available from the optimization procedure through the final model verification automatically.

  • Potential-Based Large-Signal Stability Analysis in DC Power Grids With
           Multiple Constant Power Loads

    • Authors: Fangyuan Chang;Xiaofan Cui;Mengqi Wang;Wencong Su;
      Pages: 16 - 28
      Abstract: The increasing adoption of power electronic devices may lead to large disturbance in DC power grids. Traditionally, the Brayton-Moser mixed potential theory is utilized to address large-signal stability (LSS) analysis. However, this theory proposes sufficient criteria only for large-signal global stability, which provides general but fuzzy information about the stability of DC microgrids. To solve this issue, we propose for the first time a comprehensive hyperlocal large-signal stability analysis (HL-LSS) that is adaptable to large-scale complex power grids. The novel proposed analysis studies the complex situation in nonlinear DC grids with multiple equilibrium points, including stability analysis of each equilibrium point and convergence analysis of state trajectories. The region of attraction (ROA) of microgrids is also estimated.

  • Review of Small-Signal Converter-Driven Stability Issues in Power Systems

    • Authors: Le Kong;Yaosuo Xue;Liang Qiao;Fei Wang;
      Pages: 29 - 41
      Abstract: New grid devices based on power electronics technologies are increasingly emerging and introduce two new types of stability issues into power systems, which are different from traditional power system stability phenomena and not well understood from a system perspective. This paper intends to provide the state of the art on this topic with a thorough and detailed review of the converter-driven stability issues in partial or all power electronics-based grids. The underlying and fundamental mechanisms of the converter-driven stability issues are uncovered through different types of root causes, including converter controls, grid strength, loads, and converter operating points. Furthermore, a six-inverter two-area meshed system is constructed as a representative test case to demonstrate these unstable phenomena. Finally, the challenges to cope with the converter-driven stability issues in future power electronics-based grids are identified to elucidate new research trends.

  • Real-Time Simulation of Hybrid Three-Level and Modular Multilevel
           Converter Based on Complete Equivalent Model for High Voltage Direct
           Current Transmission System

    • Authors: Jintao Han;Levi M. Bieber;Jared Paull;Liwei Wang;Wei Li;Jean-Nicolas Paquin;
      Pages: 42 - 54
      Abstract: Real-time simulation is a crucial but complicated task for fast control prototyping of high-power converters. Detailed semiconductor device-based model simulates a large number of switching events at a small time step, which requires large computational effort and is thus challenging for real-time simulation. This paper proposes a complete equivalent model (CEM) approach for the real-time simulation of a hybrid 3-level and modular multilevel converter (H3LC). The presented CEM simplifies the detailed equivalent model (DEM) of the H3LC and facilitates the implementation of real-time simulation. A central processing unit (CPU) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) based simulation is presented whereby the massive parallel computing power of the FPGA enables the simulation of the H3LC’s three-level T-type converter and the hundreds of series-connected full-bridge submodules. The rest of the converter system, including the converter controls, the AC grid, and the measurement of the AC currents are implemented within the CPU model. The FPGA-based converter model is interfaced with the CPU model using controlled voltage sources to represent the AC- and DC-side equivalent voltages of the H3LC. The OP5700 real-time digital simulator from OPAL-RT Technologies is used to realize the CPU-FPGA real-time simulation, which is verified by the offline MATLAB/Simulink Simscape model.

  • A Comparison of Inverter Control Modes for Maintaining Voltage Stability
           During System Contingencies

    • Authors: Thilini Hathiyaldeniye;Udaya D. Annakkage;Nalin Pahalawaththa;Chandana Karawita;
      Pages: 55 - 65
      Abstract: Inverter-based power sources are increasingly being connected to the power system due to the global drive towards renewable generation. This paper investigates the voltage stability of a power system where a load center is supplied by the grid through a transmission system along with an inverter-based generation located close to the load center. It is also assumed that there is no additional reactive power compensation at the load center and voltage control at Point of Common Coupling (PCC) is done by the inverter. This is challenging as the inverter has an added duty. If the inverter controllers are not designed properly, the inverter could reach its current limit following to contingencies rendering it unable to support the voltage at the PCC. This is due to the fact that once the current limit is reached, the inverter ceases to function as a voltage source. When the voltage at the PCC is not supported, the active power transfer capability of both the inverter and the grid will be reduced. An effective control method is required under such circumstances to handle the active and reactive components of the inverter current. Various strategies exist for controlling the active and reactive components of the inverter current while preserving the current magnitude at the rated value. The necessity of an adequate control strategy to sustain long-term voltage stability following a system contingency is emphasized in this research. This paper further discusses three candidate control strategies and the effectiveness of the reactive current prioritizing approach as a solution for operation upon system contingencies.

  • Detecting Large Frequency Excursions in the Power Grid With Bayesian
           Decision Theory

    • Authors: Amanda Lenzi;Julie Bessac;Mihai Anitescu;
      Pages: 66 - 75
      Abstract: Disturbances in power systems, such as a generator trip, affect the frequency and voltage of the power grid. A framework that enables anticipating potentially dangerous frequency excursions (as signs of the disturbance start to reach sensors) is crucial to allow the operator more time to maintain or improve the electrical system’s reliability. We propose statistical models for anticipating disturbances in the frequency response at several locations simultaneously, and we quantify the risk of a frequency excursion. After probabilistic forecasts of the power grid frequency are obtained, a Bayesian decision framework is developed to issue real-time event recommendations based on actions that minimize the risk over some loss functions predefined by stakeholders. A case study with real-time monitored data from the FNET/GridEye system shows that the traditional autoregressive models underestimate the uncertainty, leading to high chances of missing a rapid frequency drop. On the other hand, this case study reveals the value of including spatial dependence in the model. The proposed spatiotemporal model better captures the uncertainty and significantly increases the probability of identifying large frequency excursions. Results show that the spatiotemporal model can significantly reduce risks for the system operator as it consistently indicates lower costs than the ones from classical models for a wide range of loss functions.

  • On Modeling Depths of Power Electronic Circuits for Real-Time Simulation
           – A Comparative Analysis for Power Systems

    • Authors: Giovanni De Carne;Georg Lauss;Mazheruddin H. Syed;Antonello Monti;Andrea Benigni;Shahab Karrari;Panos Kotsampopoulos;Md. Omar Faruque;
      Pages: 76 - 87
      Abstract: Investigations of the dynamic behaviour of power electronic components integrated into electric networks require suitable and established simulation methodologies. Real-time simulation represents a frequently applied methodology for analyzing the steady-state and transient behavior of electric power systems. This work introduces a guideline on how to model power electronics converters in digital real time simulators, taking into account the trade-off between model accuracy and the required computation time. Based on this concept, possible execution approaches with respect to the usage of central processing unit and field-programmable gate array components are highlighted. Simulation test scenario, such as primary frequency regulation and low voltage ride through, have been performed and accuracy indices are discussed for each implemented real-time model and each test scenario, respectively. Finally, a run-time analysis of presented real-time setups is given and real-time simulation results are compared. This manuscript demonstrates important differences in real-time simulation modelling, providing useful guidelines for the decision making of power engineers.

  • Building Marginal Pattern Library With Unbiased Training Dataset for
           Enhancing Model-Free Load-ED Mapping

    • Authors: Qiwei Zhang;Fangxing Li;Wei Feng;Xiaofei Wang;Linquan Bai;Rui Bo;
      Pages: 88 - 98
      Abstract: Input-output mapping for a given power system problem, such as loads versus economic dispatch (ED) results, has been demonstrated to be learnable through artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, including neural networks. However, the process of identifying and constructing a comprehensive dataset for the training of such input-output mapping remains a challenge to be solved. Conventionally, load samples are generated by a pre-defined distribution, and then ED is solved based on those load samples to form training datasets, but this paper demonstrates that such dataset generation is biased regarding load-ED mapping. The marginal unit and line congestion (i.e., marginal pattern) exhibit a unique characteristic called “step change” in which the marginal pattern changes when the load goes from one critical loading level (CLL) to another, and there is no change of marginal units within the interval of the two adjacent CLLs. Those loading intervals differ significantly in size. The randomly generated training dataset overfills intervals with large sizes and underfits intervals with small sizes, so it is biased. In this paper, three algorithms are proposed to construct a marginal pattern library to examine this bias according to different computational needs, and an enhancement algorithm is proposed to eliminate the bias in the load-ED training dataset generation. Three illustrative test cases demonstrate the proposed algorithms, and comparative studies are constructed to show the superiority of the enhanced, unbiased training dataset.

  • Experimental Investigation of Inter-Phase Power Management in Residential

    • Authors: Syed A. Raza;Jin Jiang;
      Pages: 99 - 108
      Abstract: With increased installation of single-phase rooftop PV systems, in-house battery storages, and high-power plug-in loads (i.e. EVs) at single-phase residential sites, it is prevalent that more and more distribution systems are becoming severely unbalanced causing power quality problems and thermal risks at distribution substations. To solve this problem, two main strategies have been developed previously by the authors, known as intra- and inter-phase power management strategies. The latter makes use of interconnecting back-to-back converters between the phases to mitigate the phase imbalance caused by the various single-phase DG units and loads. This paper devotes laboratory evaluation of the developed schemes and demonstrate key features experimentally on inter-phase power management. Two main experiments have been carried out to confirm that the developed technique can use the surplus power capacity from one phase to support the load demand in another phase to achieve dynamic power balance. From the point view of the substation transformer, the three-phases will always appear to be balanced despite the fact that different phases can have very different local generation and load profiles.

  • A Meta-Learning Approach to the Optimal Power Flow Problem Under Topology

    • Authors: Yexiang Chen;Subhash Lakshminarayana;Carsten Maple;H. Vincent Poor;
      Pages: 109 - 120
      Abstract: Recently there has been a surge of interest in adopting deep neural networks (DNNs) for solving the optimal power flow (OPF) problem in power systems. Computing optimal generation dispatch decisions using a trained DNN takes significantly less time when compared to conventional optimization solvers. However, a major drawback of existing work is that the machine learning models are trained for a specific system topology. Hence, the DNN predictions are only useful as long as the system topology remains unchanged. Changes to the system topology (initiated by the system operator) would require retraining the DNN, which incurs significant training overhead and requires an extensive amount of training data (corresponding to the new system topology). To overcome this drawback, we propose a DNN-based OPF predictor that is trained using a meta-learning (MTL) approach. The key idea behind this approach is to find a common initialization vector that enables fast training for any system topology. The developed OPF-predictor is validated through simulations using benchmark IEEE bus systems. The results show that the MTL approach achieves significant training speed-ups and requires only a few gradient steps with a few data samples to achieve high OPF prediction accuracy and outperforms other pretraining techniques.
