TL;DR: The paper describes a general methodology for the fitting of measured or calculated frequency domain responses with rational function approximations by replacing a set of starting poles with an improved set of poles via a scaling procedure.

Abstract: The paper describes a general methodology for the fitting of measured or calculated frequency domain responses with rational function approximations. This is achieved by replacing a set of starting poles with an improved set of poles via a scaling procedure. A previous paper (Gustavsen et al., 1997) described the application of the method to smooth functions using real starting poles. This paper extends the method to functions with a high number of resonance peaks by allowing complex starting poles. Fundamental properties of the method are discussed and details of its practical implementation are described. The method is demonstrated to be very suitable for fitting network equivalents and transformer responses. The computer code is in the public domain, available from the first author.

TL;DR: In this article, the problem of capacitors placement on a radial distribution system is formulated and a solution algorithm is proposed, where the location, type, and size of the capacitors, voltage constraints, and load variations are considered.

Abstract: The problem of capacitor placement on a radial distribution system is formulated and a solution algorithm is proposed. The location, type, and size of capacitors, voltage constraints, and load variations are considered. The objective of capacitor placement is peak power and energy loss reduction, taking into account the cost of the capacitors. The problem is formulated as a mixed integer programming problem. The power flows in the system are explicitly represented, and the voltage constraints are incorporated. A solution method has been implemented that decomposes the problem into a master problem and a slave problem. The master problem is used to determine the location of the capacitors. The slave problem is used by the master problem to determine the type and size of the capacitors placed on the system. In solving the slave problem, and efficient phase I-phase II algorithm is used. >

TL;DR: In this paper, a nonlinear programming problem for capacitors placed on a radial distribution system is formulated and a solution algorithm is developed to find the optimal size of capacitors so that the power losses will be minimized for a given load profile while considering the cost of the capacitors.

Abstract: A capacitor sizing problem for capacitors placed on a radial distribution system is formulated as a nonlinear programming problem, and a solution algorithm is developed. The object is to find the optimal size of the capacitors so that the power losses will be minimized for a given load profile while considering the cost of the capacitors. The formulation also incorporates the AC power flow model for the system and the voltage constraints. The solution algorithm developed for the capacitor sizing problem is based on a Phase I-Phase II feasible directions approach. Novel power flow equations and a solution method, called DistFlow, for radial distribution systems are introduced. The method is computationally efficient and numerically robust, especially for distribution systems with large r/x ratio branches. DistFlow is used repeatedly as a subroutine in the optimization algorithm for the capacitor sizing problem. The test results for the algorithm indicate that the method is computationally efficient and has good convergence characteristics. >

TL;DR: In this paper, a scheme that utilizes feeder reconfiguration as a planning and/or real-time control tool to restructure the primary feeder for loss reduction is presented.

Abstract: Feeder reconfiguration is defined as altering the topological structures of distribution feeders by changing the open/closed states of the sectionalizing and tie switches. A scheme is presented that utilizes feeder reconfiguration as a planning and/or real-time control tool to restructure the primary feeder for loss reduction. The mathematical foundation of the scheme is given. The solution is illustrated on simple examples. >

TL;DR: In this paper, a modified phase-shifted carrier-based pulsewidth-modulation (PSC-PWM) scheme for modular multilevel converters (MMC) is presented.

Abstract: This paper describes a modified phase-shifted carrier-based pulsewidth-modulation (PSC-PWM) scheme for modular multilevel converters (MMC). In order to reduce the average device switching frequency, a reduced switching-frequency (RSF) voltage balancing algorithm is developed. This paper also proposes a circulating current suppressing controller (CCSC) to minimize the inner circulating current in an MMC. Based on the double line-frequency, negative-sequence rotational frame, the three-phase alternative circulating currents are decomposed into two dc components and are minimized by a pair of proportional integral controllers. Simulation results based on a detailed PSCAD/EMTDC model prove the effectiveness of the modified PSC-PWM method and the RSF voltage-balancing algorithm. The proposed CCSC not only eliminates the inner circulating current but also improves the quality of the converter ac output voltage. A simple loss evaluation demonstrates that the RSF voltage-balancing algorithm and the CCSC reduce the converter power losses.
