PES Webinar - Planning Studies for HVDC Systems

Planning Studies for HVDC Systems

January 16, 2019 • 10:00 am ET

Presented by: Vajira Pathirana, Chief Engineer, Teshmont Consultants LP; Pei Wang, Section Head- HVDC Planning, Manitoba Hydro; and Ramy Azar, CTO and VP-Eng, SNC-Lavalin

This Webinar:

The webinar will present an introduction to the studies that will be performed during the planning phase of an HVDC system. Planning studies are usually required to determine the location of the converter stations, ac voltages of the connecting substations, power rating and voltage rating, overload requirements, reactive power requirements, performance requirements, operating modes and configuration of the HVDC system.

The webinar discusses the process, criteria and studies to be considered during the planning stage for developing a proper specification and successfully integrating the HVDC scheme into the electrical network. Attendees will understand the reasons for performing studies, a planning engineer’s perspective of the technical issues that must be considered, criteria that must be followed during planning phase, applications to be considered, technology aspects, reliability indices, control strategies, simulation tools for planning studies and lessons learned from a few HVDC case studies.

Impact of Inverter Based Generation on Bulk Power System Dynamics and Short-Circuit Performance

Impact of Inverter Based Generation on Bulk Power System Dynamics and Short-Circuit Performance

April 2, 2019 • 1:00 pm ET

Presented by: Gary Kobet, Electrical Engineer, Tennessee Valley Authority

Click Here for Details and to Register

This Webinar:

IEEE/NERC formed a joint task force in June 2017 to address concerns about high penetration of inverter-based resources (IBR) and the associated impacts to protective relaying and large system issues. The goals were to identify what issues are already addressed (or are being addressed) by what groups, and identify where gaps exist requiring additional technical work. The task force completed their work in July 2018, with the document (PES-TR68 Impact of Inverter Based Generation on Bulk Power System Dynamics and Short-Circuit Performance) being posted in the IEEE/PES Resource Center website.

PES Webinar - Rating of Underground Power Cables with Boundary Temperature Restrictions – a 2019 PES Prize Paper

Rating of Underground Power Cables with Boundary Temperature Restrictions – a 2019 PES Prize Paper

July 2, 2019 • 11:00 am ET

Presented by: Dr George Anders, aco-Anders Con

This Webinar:

This webinar will present the 2019 PES Prize Paper entitled “Rating of Underground Power Cables with Boundary Temperature Restrictions”. This paper is selected as one of two PES prize papers among about 2000 papers published in all PES transactions over the past 3 years. The subject of the paper is about a new cable rating method for actual industry applications. The usual way of rating the electric power cables is to compute the current such that the conductor temperature does not exceed the specified limit. The procedures for ampacity calculations are well established and are part of several international and national standards. However, in several countries, another restriction is imposed on the maximum current the cable can carry. This restriction limits the temperature rise at a point other than the cable conductor. In North America, a notion of the “boundary” temperature limit is sometimes entertained. The boundary can refer to the cable surface but also to the edge of the duct bank or a backfill. The paper proposes new solutions to such problem including calculation of the dynamic ratings. It not only introduces a computational procedure to calculate ampacities based on boundary temperature restrictions but also illustrates how the new algorithm can be applied in practice for several cable design situations.

LIVE Online Tutorial Transactive Energy Systems: Overview, Theory, Tool, Application, and Trend, Session 1: Introduction

Posted:

Chair:
Steve Widergren
Session Type:
Tutorial
Page/Slide Count:
Time: 01:20:00
Recently, Transactive Energy Systems (TES) have gained great interest in the Power and Energy community. TES optimizes the operation of distributed energy resources (DERs) through market-based transactions between participants. The underlying transactive coordination and control (TC2) incorporates the economic concepts and principles into the decision making and controller design of individual market participants, and uses value, in particular, price as the control signal to coordinate and achieve their distinct objectives. It shares the advantages of both direct load control and price responsive control. However, because TES is a newly emerging concept, it is still mysterious to the power community. In this tutorial, pioneering TES researchers will give lectures to demystify TES from different aspects including theory, tool and application.
