Composite system reliability assessment incorporating an interline power-flow controller, Article IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery ; Volume 23, Issue 2 , 2008 , Pages 1191-1199 ; 08858977 (ISSN) ; Kazemi, A ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Edris, A. A ; Sharif University of Technology
The impact of an interline power-flow controller (IPFC) on composite system delivery point and overall system reliability indices is examined in this paper. In this application, the IPFC with dc transmission lines is employed in a system for coordinated control of line impedances of two, distance away, transmission lines with the objective of managing power flows on the two lines. It is also used to balance the real power being transferred between the compensated lines. For this purpose, the reliability model associated with a converter station has been developed and incorporated in an IPFC reliability model. A number of reliability indices are calculated at both the loadpoint and system...
Effect of interline power flow controller (IPFC) on interconnected power systems adequacy, Article 2008 IEEE 2nd International Power and Energy Conference, PECon 2008, Johor Baharu, 1 December 2008 through 3 December 2008 ; 2008 , Pages 1358-1363 ; 9781424424054 (ISBN) ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Nasiri, R ; Khodaei, A ; Sharif University of Technology
This paper probes the impact of utilizing an IPFC on the reliability indices of interconnected power systems. First, a concise presentation of IPFC and its structure are provided and the reliability model of two unequally-rated parallel transmission lines equipped with IPFC is then extracted. The assumed IPFC is composed from two parallel converting bridges associated with each line. Afterwards, based-on equivalent assisting unit approach, different commonly-used adequacy indices including the loss of load expectation (LOLE), loss of energy expectation (LOEE) and system minutes (SM) are calculated. A set of numerical analyses are conducted to illustrate the sensitivity of these indices with...
