  1. 1. Automating Power Quality Analysis

    Author : Emmanouil Styvaktakis; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pattern classification; expert systems; induction motors; power system transients; voltage dips; power system faults; power quality; Kalman filtering; power system monitoring; transformer saturation; short time Fourier transform;

    Abstract : The increased requirements on supervision, control, and performance in modern power systems make power quality monitoring a common practise for utilities. Large databases are created and automatic processing of the data is required for fast and effective use of the available information. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling, Control and Protection of Low-Voltage DC Microgrids

    Author : Daniel Salomonsson; Lennart Söder; Brian K. Johnsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; circuit transient analysis; dc power systems; dispersed storage and generation; load modeling; power conversion; power distribution control; power distribution faults; power distribution protection; power electronics; Electric power engineering; Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : Current trends in electric power consumption indicate an increasing use of dc in end-user equipment, such as computers and other electronic appliances used in households and offices. With a dc power system, ac/dc conversion within these loads can be avoided, and losses reduced. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Intelligent Power-System Monitoring: Segmentation, Feature Extraction, and Identification of Underlying Causes

    Author : Cuong Le; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : harmonics analysis; Power-system monitoring; segmentation; power-system measurement; power quality; event analysis; signal-processing applications;

    Abstract : The increase in size of modern power systems together with the concept smart grid requires advanced monitoring to ensure system availability, reliability, and power quality. The huge amount of available data no longer permits analysis to be implemented manually and centrally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling of Wind Turbines for Power System Studies

    Author : Tomas Petru; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : flicker; fault response; power quality; wind turbine; power system stability; measurements; prediction; verification; grid simulation; modeling;

    Abstract : The power quality impact of wind turbines on the electric grid and the response of the wind turbines to faults in the electric grid are investigated in this thesis. A detailed model of a stall-regulated, fixed-speed wind turbine system capable of predicting the flicker impact on the connected grid is presented and compared with field measurements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Power Electronics for Mitigation of Voltage Sags and Improved Control of AC Power Systems

    Author : Marcio Magalhães de Oliveira; KTH; []
    Keywords : power electronics; power quality; voltage sags; voltage-source converters; Custom Power; FACTS; real-time simulations; solid-state devices;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with the application of compensators andswitches based on power electronics in AC transmission anddistribution systems. The objective of the studieddevices/equipment is the power flow and voltage control intransmission systems and the mitigation of voltage sags andmomentary interruptions to critical loads in distributionsystems.
