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.

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

Click Here for Details and to Register

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.

This Webinar:

This webinar will first provide an overview on the papers received and published in a recent PWRD's special issue called "Advances in Condition Monitoring and Assessment of Power Equipment". It will also share the impressions of the guest EIC on the R&D trends in this important area.

The webinar will then present the best paper selected from the special issue. The paper, entitled "Analytical Expressions to Link SCNF and OCNF of Transformer Windings to Their Inductances and Capacitances for 1-Φ, 3-Φ Y and Δ Configurations", establishes a mathematical relationship between transformer winding/core movement and the deviation of its frequency responses. This finding has the potential to facilitate a more meaningful interpretation of FRA (frequency response analysis) data, leading to improved transformer condition monitoring.

In the main part, a novel approach is presented to derive closed-form analytical expressions that connects harmonic sum of squares of natural frequencies (both SCNF and OCNF) of any winding configuration to its elementary inductances and capacitances. Expressions are derived for all 1-Φ and 3-Φ winding configurations.

Next, a sneak preview of an application of derived expressions to indirectly measure equivalent air-cored inductance (termed as Leq) of an iron-cored transformer winding, from measured FRA, is discussed. Experiments on 3-Φ, air-cored, 33 kV, 3.5 MVA winding setup are discussed. Results are cross validated by inductance measurements using an LCR meter.

Future thoughts on using Leq as an alternative to leakage reactance measured at 50/60 Hz to provide improved sensitivity for interpreting routine short-circuit test data is discussed. Finally, some insight on using derived expressions to locate radial/axial displacements in Y and Δ windings are very briefly presented.

Researchers/Engineers interested in interpretation of measured FRA and possible novel uses of FRA data

Time: 01:00:00
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.

PES Webinar - Incipient Fault Detection Using Equipment Failure Signatures and Power Quality Monitors

Webinar Title: Incipient Fault Detection Using Equipment Failure Signatures and Power Quality Monitors

Date: Tuesday, April 14 @ 11:00AM - 12:00PM EST

Webinar Registrationhttps://resourcecenter.ieee-pes.org/education/webinars/PES_Ed_webinar_TandD_Incipient_041420.html

Webinar Description: Many power equipment failures and short-circuit incidents are preceded with incipient faults. Such faults often leave unique "marks" on the voltage and current waveforms. In recent years, engineers and researchers in the fields of power quality, power system protection and equipment condition monitoring have all recognized that such unique "marks" or waveform signatures can be used to detect the occurrence of incipient faults. Thus a proactive approach to power system protection may become a reality.

This webinar will present the state-of-the-art developments in the area of incipient fault detection, primarily from the perspective of power quality (PQ) monitoring. PQ monitors are probably the most versatile waveform recording devices and PQ analysis is essentially waveform analysis. As such, PQ monitoring platforms may represent the easiest way to realize "incipient fault detection on a budget".

This webinar will also explain a recent technical report completed by the PES WG on Power Quality Data Analytics, PES-TR-73: "Electrical Signatures of Power Equipment Failures". The webinar will further discuss, frankly, the limitations of existing techniques and the various paths to move forward in this important direction.

Presenter BioDr. Wilsun Xu, is a professor at the University of Alberta, Canada. He obtained PhD from the University of British Columbia, Canada in 1989 and worked in BC Hydro from 1990 to 1996. Dr. Xu is an expert in power quality and an IEEE fellow for contributions to the field of power system harmonics. In recent years, Dr. Xu championed international efforts to expand the use of PQ monitoring and analysis to areas such as incipient fault detection. Driving by this vision, he helped to establish the IEEE PES WG on Power Quality Data Analytics in 2014 and served as its first chair.
