    Primary and secondary frequency control in an autonomous microgrid supported by a load-shedding strategy

    , Article PEDSTC 2013 - 4th Annual International Power Electronics, Drive Systems and Technologies Conference ; 2013 , Pages 282-287 ; 9781467344845 (ISBN) Raghami, A ; Ameli, M. T ; Hamzeh, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper proposes a frequency control strategy for an islanded inverter-based microgrid which based on the priority of supply, has got two distinct types of loads, namely sensitive and deferrable. The proposed strategy consists of primary and secondary levels of generation control supported by a loadshedding scheme. The primary control regulates the output power of the distributed generator (DG) units to be proportional to their ratings while secondary control has got the duty of frequency restoration after each load change. Functionality of these two levels is demonstrated to be independent of each other. Both controls are in distributed forms which have no need of communication... 

    Reliability assessment of distribution system with distributed generation

    , Article 2008 IEEE 2nd International Power and Energy Conference, PECon 2008, Johor Baharu, 1 December 2008 through 3 December 2008 ; January , 2008 , Pages 1551-1556 ; 9781424424054 (ISBN) Jahangiri, P ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Reliability assessment is of primary importance in designing and planning distribution systems that operate in an economical manner with minimal interruption of customer loads. Distributed generation (DG) is expected to play an increasing role in emerging power systems because they use different type of resources and technologies to serve energy to power systems. DG is expected to improve the system reliability as its backup generation. Since DG units are subject to failures as all other generation units, the random behavior of these units must be taken into account in the analysis. Existence of DG units in a distribution system will effect on restoration time of load points. In this paper,... 

    Reliability improvement of distribution systems using SSVR

    , Article ISA Transactions ; Volume 48, Issue 1 , 2009 , Pages 98-106 ; 00190578 (ISSN) Hosseini, M ; Shayanfar, H. A ; Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a reliability assessment algorithm for distribution systems using a Static Series Voltage Regulator (SSVR). Furthermore, this algorithm considers the effects of Distributed Generation (DG) units, alternative sources, system reconfiguration, load shedding and load adding on distribution system reliability indices. In this algorithm, load points are classified into 8 types and separated restoration times are considered for each class. Comparative studies are conducted to investigate the impacts of DG and alternative source unavailability on the distribution system reliability. For reliability assessment, the customer-oriented reliability indices such as SAIFI, SAIDI, CAIDI... 

    A reopened crowbar protection for increasing the resiliency of the vacuum tube high-voltage DC power supply against the vacuum Arc

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science ; Volume 47, Issue 5 , 2019 , Pages 2717-2725 ; 00933813 (ISSN) Pouresmaeil, K ; Kaboli, S ; Sharif University of Technology

    High-voltage power supplies (HVPSs) are widely used to supply vacuum tubes. The amount of delivered energy from the HVPS to the tube is an important issue during the vacuum arc in the tube. The conventional protection mechanism consists of a shunt crowbar which diverts the fault current from the tube to itself as a parallel path. The crowbar circuit is usually built of the devices without the turn-off capability. It is a drawback since the output of the power supply is shortened for a long time. Thus, the restoration time of these power supplies is excessive. This demerit can have detrimental effects on mission-critical applications. In this paper, the insulated-gate bipolar transistor... 

    Multi objective power system restoration

    , Article 2008 IEEE Electrical Power and Energy Conference - Energy Innovation, Vancouver, BC, 6 October 2008 through 7 October 2008 ; January , 2008 ; 9781424428953 (ISBN) Nouri Zadeh, S ; Ranjbar, A. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a stochastic model for optimal generating units' restoration planning. Restoration plans will be performed based on different objectives i.e. total system risk, total served energy in the period of restoration, and total restoration time. The proposed model is a multi objective stochastic program in which generating units' restoration plan is assumed to optimize different kinds of objective function. The proposed approach to the optimal restoration of generating units can be used by vertically integrated utilities as well as the ISOs in electricity markets. The approach coordinates the optimal start up of generating units within the restoration period. Physical...
