Abstract— This paper presents the modeling of wind energy systems using MATLAB Simulink. The model considers the MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) technique to track the maximum power that could be extracted from the wind energy, due the non-linear characteristic of the wind turbine. The model consists of wind generation model, converter model (DC-DC converter), and MPPT controller. The main contribution of our work is in the model of DC-DC converter (buck converter) which is developed in rather details, which allows the MPPT controller output (duty cycle) adjusts the voltage input of the converter to track the maximum power point of the wind generator. The simulation results show that the developed model complies with the theoretical one. Further the MPPT control shows a higher power output compared to the system without MPPT.

A Method For Transmission Loss Allocation Using Optimal Power Flow- Kitami Institute of Technology,Japan

— /—

Abstract-Under open access environment in the de-regulated power market, transmission loss allocation to various transactions including bilateral transaction is one of the most important problems to be solved exactly. But,because of the nonlinear characteristic of the total loss,it is very difficult to separate and allocate this loss among market participants of generators appropriately. This paper presents an iterative loss allocation algorithm using DC optimal power flow(DC-OPF).To ascertain the effectiveness of the proposed method, we apply the method to the 8 unit – 44 bus system and the detail discussions are given on the obtained simulation results.

Z-Bus Loss Allocation. IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON POWER SYSTEMS, VOL. 16, NO. 1, FEBRUARY 2001- 0885–8950/01© 2001 IEEE

— /—

Abstract—This paper presents a new procedure for allocating transmission losses to generators and loads in the context of pools operated under a single marginal price derived froma merit-order approach. The procedure is based on the network z-bus matrix, although all required computations exploit the sparse y-bus matrix. One innovative feature and advantage of this method is that, unlike other proposed approaches, it exploits the full set of network equations and does not require any simplifying assumptions. The method is based on a solved load flow and is easily understood and implemented. The loss allocation process emphasizes current rather than power injections, an approach that is intuitively reasonable and leads to a natural separation of system losses among the network buses. Results illustrate the consistency of the new allocation process with expected results and with the performance of other methods.

Modeling and Control of a Single-Phase Grid Connected Photovoltaic System- Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information Technology- ISSN: 1992-8645

— /—

Abstract-This paper at first presents a control algorithm for a single-phase grid-connected photovoltaic system in which an inverter designed for grid-connected photovoltaic arrays can synchronize a sinusoidal current output with a voltage grid. This paper presents modeling, controller design, and simulation study of a grid connected PV system. The overall configuration of the grid connected PV system is present. The main points discussed here are the MPP tracking algorithm, the synchronization of the inverter and the connection to the grid. Tracking the dc voltage and current allows MPP calculation which gives the inverter to function efficiently. We apply the MPP equations to the PV array model and watch the inverter input and output. In order to synchronize the simulated inverter to the grid the waveforms from the grid are applied to the pulse width modulation (PWM) input and drive appropriately the inverter’s IGBT’s. A Matlab/Simulink based simulation model is developed for the system. A Simulation results are presented to show the overall system performance.

Load Modeling in Optimal Power Flow Studies- Department of Electrical Engineering National Institute of Technology, Rourkela

— /—

Abstract- The present day scenario of electrical power system engineering mainly encompasses the problems like power paucity, blackout, load shedding, ineptness of meeting the necessary demand of power etc. Hence new power plants are built or old ones are expanded and upgraded. Power flow analysis plays an integral role in both the above cases. Power flow analysis equips power system engineers with all the essential data for building a secure, stable and reliable power system. Power flow analysis tells about the line flows of active and reactive power and bus bar values of voltage magnitude and phase difference. The practical application of load flow analysis is exploited by converting it to Optimal Power Flow (OPF) analysis. There has been significant development in research fields of power generation plants and transmission and distribution systems. Although these developments play a key role in today’s scenario, there still remains a field where the scope of development still persists. Loads in general are taken as constant sinks for both active and reactive power; where in reality, the load power consumption is very much dependent on voltage magnitude and frequency deviations. OPF analysis incorporating load modeling is a major tool for minimizing transmission and generation losses, generation cost and maximizing the system efficiency. System security and accuracy are also increased by incorporation of load models. This thesis focuses on incorporating load models in traditional OPF studies and comparing the results of the above with those obtained from OPF analysis without the incorporation of load models.

Modeling of a Hybrid System of Photovoltaic and Fuel cell for Operational Strategy in Residential Use- Hiroshima Institute of Technology, Japan

— /—

Abstract- In our country, a photovoltaic solar energy system has been widely utilized as an alternative energy source to fossil fuel at a residential area. The output of photovoltaic cell sharply changes according to weather conditions. Therefore, a certain power storage device is required to smooth the output and to meet electricity demand equivalent to a household load. A fuel cell is a promising candidate for long term energy system because hydrogen is supplied stably. This paper presents the modeling and operational strategy of a hybrid system of photovoltaic (PV) and fuel cell. The proposed system is consists of PV array, fuel cell stack, electrolyzer (EL), hydrogen storage tank, and power conversion devices. If the photovoltaic system is not able to supply power to the household load, the fuel cell system compensates a power shortage together with the utility grid. In case that surplus power occurs from the PV system, the EL system consumes it to generate hydrogen from pure water. The behavior of the proposed hybrid system is verified by numerical simulation using MATLAB/Simulink.

Incremental Transmission Loss Allocation Under Pool Dispatch- IEEE transactions on power systems, vol. 17, no. 1, february 2002- 0885–8950/02© 2002 IEEE

Abstract—Incremental transmission loss analysis has been used for decades, but recent interest in its application to loss allocation calls for new in-depth results. This paper demonstrates that, for incremental methods to be applied correctly in loss allocation, it is first necessary to specify the load distribution and loss supply strategies. Incremental loss allocation among bus power injections is shown to be arbitrary and, therefore, open to challenge as dis- criminatory. Loss allocation is possible among incremental loads and/or generators, but the proportion of the total losses assigned to either one is arbitrary. Unique, nonarbitrary incremental loss allocations are however possible among the “equivalent” incre- mental bilateral exchanges between generators and loads. From these basic components it is possible then to calculate the alloca- tion among generators or loads in any specified proportion. The main results, although developed initially for small increments, are extended to large variations. Finally, a general incremental loss allocation algorithm is developed and tested.

Abstract– The DG systems are quickly becoming an energy management solution that saves money, resources, and environment in one compact and scalable package – be it stationary or mobile, remote or interconnected with the utility grid. The Distributed generation based on microturbine technology is new and a fast growing business. In this paper the detailed model of a single-shaft MTG system suitable for both grid connected and islanding operation has been presented, which is practically feasible. The developed model allows the bidirectional power flow between grid and MTG system. For the purpose of modeling, a dynamic model for each component in the system, including microturbine, PMSM, m/c side converter controller, line side controller and LCL filter is developed. The results are validated in MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Abstract- Power flow analysis is the backbone of power system analysis and design. They are necessary for planning, operation, economic scheduling and exchange of power between utilities. The principal information of power flow analysis is to find the magnitude and phase angle of voltage at each bus and the real and reactive power flowing in each transmission lines. Power flow analysis is an importance tool involving numerical analysis applied to a power system. In this analysis, iterative techniques are used due to there no known analytical method to solve the problem. To finish this analysis there are methods of mathematical calculations which consist plenty of step depend on the size of system. This process is difficult and takes a lot of times to perform by hand. The objective of this project is to develop a toolbox for power flow analysis that will help the analysis become easier. Power flow analysis software package develops by the author use MATLAB programming The economic load dispatch plays an important role in the operation of power system, and several models by using different techniques have been used to solve these problems. Several traditional approaches, like lambda-iteration and gradient method are utilized to find out the optimal solution of non-linear problem. More recently, the soft computing techniques have received more attention and were used in a number of successful and practical applications.

Abstract—This paper deals with Power flow, which is necessary for any power system solution and carry out a comprehensive study of the Newton- Raphson method of power flow analysis with and without UPFC. Controlling power flow in modern power systems can be made more flexible by the use of recent developments in power electronic and computing control technology. The Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) provides a promising means to control power flow in modern power systems. In this paper the Newton-Raphson is used to investigate its effect on voltage profile with and without UPFC in power system. Simulations have been implemented in MATUB and the IEEE 30-bus system has been used as a case study. Simulations investigate the effect of voltage magnitude with and without UPFC on the power flow of the system. This survey article will be very much useful to the researchers for finding out the relevant references in the field of Newton-Raphson power flow control with UPFC in power systems.

Abstract: This paper proposes a control strategy which analyses the configuration of a Wind Turbine generating system equipped with PMSG. There are different types of synchronous generators, but the PMSG is chosen. It offers better performance due to higher efficiency and less maintenance since it does not have rotor current and can be used without a gearbox, which also implies a reduction of the weight of the nacelle and a reduction of costs .Also WTGS consists of another three types: wind speed, wind turbine and drive train. These elements have been modelled and the equations that explain their behaviour have been introduced.The WTGS has been implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK interface

Study on the Performance of Newton – Raphson Load Flow in Distribution Systems- Department of Electrical Engineering National Institute of Technology, Rourkela

Abstract- The reliability of the Newton-Raphson (NR) approach of Load Flow Solution is comparatively better than the other load flow techniques, as unlike other methods it can solve cases that lead to divergence, but the NR method too has some limitations. It has been observed that this method fails under some ill-conditioned situations. The distribution systems usually fall into the category of ill-conditioned power systems. Experience of such failures while applying the NR method in distribution systems encourages investigation of various ways of improving the reliability of the NR approach. Hence, the objective of this project is to study the application of NR method in load flow studies and determine the various difficulties faced while using the method for physically feasible problems, particularly in distribution systems.

The work look into the effects that advanced control techniques have on electrical power generation system and transmission system.The performance of the power system is simulated with the proposed advanced control technique. The work of power system stability, modelling and simulation of power system would be done using MiPower software techniques. In this work, a power system modelling would be attempted. Simulations would be performed on the power system model to acquire the conditions of the system model in an event of an occurrence of symmetrical fault or unsymmetrical faults. The ability to maintain system stability in a deregulated power system environment is a major challenge. Stability phenomena can cause significant damage economically, thus the limits of stability and the reliability and efficiency of the power system are much sought after issues.
