    A novel efficient model for the power flow analysis of power systems

    , Article Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences ; Volume 23, Issue 1 , 2015 , Pages 52-66 ; 13000632 (ISSN) Safdarian, A ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Aminifar, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    The overall system status calculated by pflower flow analysis is the most basic information used for all decisions taken by power system operators and planners. While conventional AC pflower flow solutions are computationally tractable, approximate DC models are employed in many applications, such as optimal power flow studies and unit commitment problems, mainly due to the linear nature of DC models. These models do not provide any information on the reactive power and voltage magnitude quantities and occasionally inaccurate results of the active power values. This paper presents an efficient power flow approach compromising both the con icting aspects of speed and accuracy. The proposed... 

    Standard test systems for modern power system analysis: an overview

    , Article IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine ; Volume 13, Issue 4 , 2019 , Pages 86-105 ; 19324529 (ISSN) Peyghami, S ; Davari, P ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Blaabjerg, F ; Sharif University of Technology

    The reliable design, planning, and operation of power systems are of paramount importance for providing reliable services to customers. This article reviews the different aspects of power system reliability, ranging from planning to operation. Standard benchmarks employed for power system studies are reviewed according to nearly 2,500 IEEE journal papers from 1986 to early 2019. Our overview provides the pros and cons of existing test systems, implying the lack of appropriate benchmarks for future power system studies, including renewable resources and modern technologies. Furthermore, this article presents requirements for updating and modifying the benchmarks for modern power systems... 

    A decision tree-based method for power system fault diagnosis by synchronized Phasor Measurements

    , Article IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Conference Europe ; 2012 ; 9781467325974 (ISBN) Dehkordi, P. Z ; Dobakhshari, A. S ; Ranjbar, A. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper introduces a novel approach for power system fault diagnosis based on synchronized phasor measurements during the fault. The synchronized measurements are obtained in real time from Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) and compared with offline thresholds determined by decision trees (DTs) to diagnose the fault. The DTs have already been trained offline using detailed power system analysis for different fault cases. While the traditional methods for fault diagnosis use the status of protective relays (PRs) and circuit breakers (CBs) to infer the fault section in the power system, the proposed method uses the available signals following the fault and thus can be trusted even in case of... 

    A simple three-phase model for distributed static series compensator (DSSC) in Newton power flow

    , Article 2009 Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference, APPEEC 2009, Wuhan, 27 March 2009 through 31 March 2009 ; 2009 ; 21574839 (ISSN); 9781424424870 (ISBN) Jalayer, R ; Mokhtari, H ; Wuhan University; IEEE Power and Energy Society; Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering; Scientific Research Publishing ; Sharif University of Technology
    Load flow problems have always been an important issue in power system analysis and require proper modeling of system components. In this regard Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) controllers are modern devices that their modeling specially the series type is a challenging topic. This paper describes a three-phase model for Distributed Static Series Compensator (DSSC) based on extending the Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) model in Newton power flow. To extend the SSSC model the following two differences must be considered; three completely independent phases and the existence of several modules in a DSSC system. Simulation results on the IEEE 30-bus system and a five bus...
