Determination of TTC and application of SVM for demarcation of stability limits

01 Sep 2016-pp 1-5
Abstract: The increasing demand for electrical power necessitates the expansion of power system, which is constrained by land availability and other resources. This results in the utilization of power system upto its stability limits. The TTC for an instance gives us the load that can be further supplied by the system before it loses stability. This paper aims at computing the stability limits of the power system network employed for the computation of Total Transfer Capability (TTC) using Support Vector Machine (SVM). Computation of voltage stability (using voltage stability index method and P-Q plane method) has been considered on IEEE 30 bus system. Small signal stability limit (Eigen value approach) has been considered on an WSCC 3 machine 9 bus system for which TTC has been calculated by employing SVM. All simulations are carried out in MATLAB 8.0-R 2012 b environment. more

Abstract: Total transfer capability (TTC) is an effective indicator to evaluate the transmission limit of the interconnected systems. However, due to the large-scale wind power integration, operation conditions of a power system may change rapidly, yielding time-varying characteristics of the TTC. As a result, the traditional time-consuming transient stability constrained TTC model is unable to assess the online transmission margin. In this paper, we propose an online measurement-based TTC estimator using the nonparametric analytics. It consists of three major components: the probabilistic data generation, the composite feature selection, and the group Lasso regression-based training scheme. Specifically, we present a probabilistic data generation approach to take into account the uncertainties of the day-ahead generation scheduling and to reduce the number of redundant or infeasible data. Then, the composite feature selection is used to reduce the dimension of the generated data and identify the features which are highly correlated with TTC. The features are determined by the maximal information coefficients and nonparametric independence screening approach. Finally, these selected features are trained by the group Lasso regression to learn the correlation between the TTC and the online measurements. Once real-time measurements are available, the TTC can be assessed immediately through the learned correlation relationship. Extensive numerical results carried out on the modified New England 39-bus test system demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed TTC estimator for online applications. more

Abstract: For graduate-level neural network courses offered in the departments of Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science. Neural Networks and Learning Machines, Third Edition is renowned for its thoroughness and readability. This well-organized and completely upto-date text remains the most comprehensive treatment of neural networks from an engineering perspective. This is ideal for professional engineers and research scientists. Matlab codes used for the computer experiments in the text are available for download at: Refocused, revised and renamed to reflect the duality of neural networks and learning machines, this edition recognizes that the subject matter is richer when these topics are studied together. Ideas drawn from neural networks and machine learning are hybridized to perform improved learning tasks beyond the capability of either independently. more

Abstract: A method for the online testing a power system is proposed which is aimed at the detection of voltage instabilities. Thereby an indicator L is defined which varies in the range between 0 (noload of system) and 1 (voltage collapse). Based on the basic concept of such an indicator various models are derived which allow to predict a voltage instability or the proximity of a collapse. The indicator uses information of a normal load flow. The advantage of the method lies in the simplicity of the numerical calculation and the expressiveness of the result. more
