  • Local Area Protection for Renewable Energy

    The local renewable energy protection is of great theoretical value and practical significance in ensuring the safe and reliable operation of power grids with large‐scale renewable sources. In order to solve the problems of the protection of renewable energy integrated in the grid, this chapter analyses in depth the fault characteristics of renewable energy sources, centralized renewable energy protection and distributed renewable energy protection. It proposes a current differential protection scheme for the outgoing transmission line based on fault steady‐state components, which is not affected by fault resistance or load current, and is highly reliable and sensitive in fault identification. The chapter further introduces an adaptive protection approach for distribution networks containing distributed generation, which can eliminate the influence of distributed generation (DG) on the branch current and increase the protection range of the main protection and backup protection.

  • Integrated Planning and Operational Control Of Resilient MEG For Optimal DERs Sizing and Enhanced Dynamic Performance

    In this chapter, an integrated planning and operational control of a microenergy grid (MEG) has been presented to optimally size DERs and to enhance MEG dynamic performance. The design, development, and hardware setup of the proposed MEG have been presented from the planning stage to the operational stage. The planning stage optimizes the size and type of distributed energy resources (DERs) for minimum cost and minimum CO2 emissions. Then, the operational stage evaluates and fine‐tunes the dynamic response. Renewable energy sources and natural‐gas‐based combined heat and power (CHP) are implemented, studied, and integrated into the MEG. A D‐FACTS device, green plug‐energy economizer (GP‐EE) with two DC/AC schemes are proposed and integrated into the MEG. Enhanced heuristic optimization methods can be applied to control the parameter settings of GP‐EE to fine‐tune the system dynamic response. The proposed controller adapts the global control error to increase the energy efficiency and reliability. Power factor improvement, voltage profile enhancement, loss reduction, and power quality improvement have been realized and achieved. The design and development of the MEG with hardware demonstration have been developed at the Energy Safety and Control Laboratory (ESCL), University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The MEG system included implementation of control strategies for DERs and programmable loads at a laboratory scale. A software system was developed to monitor all MEG parameters and to control the various components. Demonstration with digital simulations has been validated with the results showing the effectiveness and the improved performance.

  • Implementing the Internet of Things for Renewable Energy

    The electric power industry is currently undergoing fundamental changes not only driven by the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into the grid, transforming it into a Smart Grid (SG), but also due to the incorporation of renewable electricity sources into customer supply, in conjunction with the rapidly decreasing costs of new technologies for electricity generation, storage, and consumption. These evolutions are happening in parallel with the deployment of the Energy Internet of Things (EIoT), whose aim is to tie all of these elements together and to provide maximum visibility, monitoring, control, and business proactivity. This chapter describes a number of key developments that are required to pollinate the full deployment of a dynamic SG, managed under EIoT mechanisms. These developments include the following four critical facets: (i) the reliable deployment of effective distributed energy resources (DERs); (ii) the deployment of the sensing, transmission, and analysis elements that comprise the EIoT; (iii) the establishment and deployment of EIoT standards to facilitate interworking and multivendor product availability; and (iv) the development and deployment of the essential mechanisms for security that will need to ensure safe and reliable grid operations.

  • How: Research and Technology

    This chapter looks at the efficiency of solar cells, both theoretical and actual, and the technical details of the standards against which they are tested. Air mass (AM), nominal operating cell temperature (NOCT), standard test conditions (STC) and 1 sun apply to the testing and qualification of solar cells, modules, and systems. To be accredited against the international standards discussed in the chapter, solar modules are rated in terms of watts peak under standard test conditions. They are then tested to ensure they are adequately strong, safe, and weatherproof, with a series of tests. The chapter lists tests that are typically performed and the results are used to validate ratings given by the manufacturer. For thin film modules, some additional tests are carried out: light soak; thermal annealing; and wet leakage current.

  • Multi¿¿¿cell Cooperation Communications

    This chapter gives an overview of multi¿¿¿cell cooperation solutions for improving the energy efficiency of cellular networks. First, it introduces traffic intensity aware multi¿¿¿cell cooperation, which adapts the network layout of cellular networks according to user traffic demands in order to reduce the number of active base stations (BSs). While network layout adaptation can potentially reduce the energy consumption of cellular networks, it must meet two service requirements: the minimum coverage requirement, and the minimum quality of service (QoS) requirements for all mobile users. The chapter then discusses energy aware multi¿¿¿cell cooperation, which offloads traffic from on¿¿¿grid BSs to off¿¿¿grid BSs powered by renewable energy, and therefore reduces on¿¿¿grid power consumption. Finally, it explores energy efficient CoMP transmission, in which overall energy consumption is reduced by improving energy efficiency of BSs on serving cell edge users.

  • Fundamental Green Networking Technologies

    This chapter gives an overview of the fundamental green networking technologies. Mobile traffic offloading, which is referred to as utilizing complementary network communications techniques to deliver mobile traffic, is a promising technique to alleviate congestion and reduce the energy consumption of mobile networks. Based on the network access mode, mobile traffic offloading schemes can be divided into two categories. The first category is infrastructure based mobile traffic offloading, which refers to deploying small cell base stations (BSs) to offload mobile traffic from macro BSs (MBSs). The second category is ad¿¿¿hoc based mobile traffic offloading, which refers to applying device¿¿¿to¿¿¿device (D2D) communications as an underlay to offload mobile traffic from MBSs. To understand the performance of mobile networks, many measurement studies have been presented. These studies unveil the obstacles that delay content delivery in mobile networks, and shed light on the research directions for enhancing the performance of mobile networks.

  • Basics of Wind Energy Conversion Systems (Wecs)

    This chapter discusses wind energy preliminaries briefly in terms of installed wind power capacity, wind energy installations by various countries, wind kinetic energy to electric energy conversion, and evolution of major wind turbine (WT) technologies since the 1980s. WTs produce negligible power when wind speed is below the cut¿¿¿in value; thus, because of which such turbines are usually kept in parking mode. The turbine is shut down and kept in parking mode when wind speed is above the cut¿¿¿out value or during emergency condition to ensure safety. The passive stall or simply stall control is the first¿¿¿generation power regulation method employed for WTs and is the simplest method among the three classes. This approach does not use any sensors, electronic controller, or actuator, thus making it less expensive and robust. Low¿¿¿ and medium¿¿¿power WTs can also be used in grid¿¿¿connected DG to reduce electricity consumption from the utility grid. When the electricity produced by the WT exceeds the household or community requirements, the electricity is sold to the utility without employing any energy storage.

  • Universal Operation of Small/Medium¿¿¿Sized Renewable Energy Systems

    In the scenario of the grid¿¿¿interactive distributed power generation systems the role of the power converters control is fundamental involving different issues: power flow control, synchronization with the main grid, reactive power capability, voltage regulation at the point of common coupling and power quality constraints. These matters are tackled in the chapter focusing on photovoltaic and small wind turbine systems. Starting from the basic main features of a renewable energy system, such as the current and voltage control of the power converter, the focus of the analysis is moved to the management of the transition among the different operation modes: grid¿¿¿connection, stand¿¿¿alone operation and synchronization. Suggestions about the control design and the parameters tuning procedure are provided. The possibility to improve the power converter of the renewable energy system with ancillary features is also investigated.

  • Multilevel Converter/Inverter Topologies and Applications

    This chapter is dedicated to explaining the basic concept of multilevel converter/inverters, introducing the three typical topologies, i.e., diode clamped multilevel inverter, flying capacitor multilevel inverter, and cascade multilevel inverter (CMI), and describing their pros and cons regarding their most suitable applications. A generalized multilevel inverter topology unifies the three typical multilevel inverters and has the ability to generate other multilevel topologies, such as modular multilevel converter (M2C), magnetic¿¿¿less multilevel DC¿¿¿DC converters, and stacked multicell converters, etc. As application examples, Y¿¿¿connection, ¿¿¿¿¿connection, and face¿¿¿to¿¿¿face¿¿¿connected CMIs are applied to static var generation (SVG), static synchronous compensator (STATCOM), and flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) devices. The Y¿¿¿connection CMI is the most promising topology in application to adjustable speed drives and photovoltaic (PV) power systems. Magnetic¿¿¿less multilevel DC¿¿¿DC converters are another emerging applications of the multilevel concept, which can achieve a high voltage boost factor with compact size, high efficiency, and suitable for high temperature application. Multilevel converters involve a high fault possibility owing to the large number of components. This chapter also analyzes the fault tolerance and reliability of multilevel converters.
