  • Safety Aspects of Ground Grid Operation and Maintenance

    There are many possible causes for increased ground potential rise (GPR) in substations (IEEE, 2000) which may be aggravated by high fault currents. Some causes are: drying of the soil, increasing the ground resistance; excessive voltage drops in the conductors and connectors due to high currents; fusing, melting, and connector failures; and arcing, burning, and open circuits; Grounding grid connections should withstand short-circuit electromagnetic forces up to the 1.0 s fusing current of the conductors to which they are attached, and heating from fault currents for up to 90% of the fusing current for 10 s. The purpose of the equalizers is to establish an equipotential plane across the ends of the conductor strands. Without performing three-dimensional electromagnetic simulations, there is no easy way to calculate the drying of soil by the passage of electrical current and the consequent increase in resistivity.

  • Testing

    The testing is determined to confirm the technical data as well as safe operation of the gas insulated substations (GIS) over its life duration. Related to the GIS use, the main tests are dielectric tests; short-circuit tests, mechanical tests and temperature rise tests. Two different test procedures apply: type tests and routine tests. As an important step in the development of a GIS, type tests were carried out to verify the performance of the GIS. The routine tests are performed for each GIS after assembly and marks a major quality gate before the GIS leaves the factory. The test parameters are based on the type test results, which means that, within certain tolerances, the routine tests need to reflect the type test data.

  • Transmission

    The purpose and benefits of the power transmission system are reviewed, as well as communication typically used with the transmission system. It is important to understand the progression of the transmission system before considering how it will evolve in the future. Power grid system components that play a role in the transmission system and throughout the power grid are introduced, including the control center, transformers, capacitors, relays, substations, and inverters; the better one understands the needs and requirements of these devices for communication, the better the communication network can be designed and implemented. Power system concepts such as frequency analysis, the phasor, and the per-unit system are introduced. Power systems control has typically been designed to sense and control locally; explicit communication is avoided to maximize reliability. Networked control is introduced and evaluated as a potential communication alternative for control. A description of the challenges in the transmission system, such as synchronization, reducing power loss, and mitigating the impact of geomagnetic storms is given. The promise of wireless power transmission is introduced, to be picked up in more detail in later chapters.

  • Technology of the Electric Transmission System

    Technology of the Electric Transmission System covers both HVAC and HVDC systems. It describes the physical components of the electric transmission system including overhead lines and cables, the functions of substations and their physical arrangements and associated equipment, and the rating of overhead lines and cables. The issue of transmission system aging is covered. Devices used to control power flow including phase angle regulating transformers and FACTS device are addressed. A comparison is made of the relative advantages and disadvantages of HVAC and HVDC.

  • Applications to Lightning Surge Protection Studies

    This chapter reviews representative applications of the finite-difference time domain method (FDTD) method to lightning electromagnetic pulse and surge simulations. The applications reviewed include lightning electromagnetic fields at close and far distances, lightning surges on overhead power transmission line (TL) conductors and towers, lightning surges on overhead distribution and telecommunication lines, the lightning electromagnetic environment in power substations, and lightning surges in wind-turbine- generator towers. It also includes lightning surges in photovoltaic arrays, the lightning electromagnetic environment in electric vehicles, the lightning electromagnetic environment in airborne vehicles, lightning surges and electromagnetic environment in buildings, and surges on grounding electrodes. When an overhead ground wire of a TL is struck by lightning, corona discharge will occur on this wire. Corona discharge around the ground wire reduces its characteristic impedance and increases the coupling between the ground wire and phase conductors.

  • Application of Risk Evaluation to Selecting Substation Configurations

    Substations and switching stations are critical segments in power systems. The fundamental principles in selection of substation configurations are reliability, economy, and flexibility in design and operation. This chapter describes a method to perform the risk assessment for a combinative system consisting of transmission network and substation configurations. The load curtailment model for a combinative system of transmission network and substation configuration is illustrated. The chapter summarizes the risk evaluation approach and the economic analysis concept. Three examples are given in the chapter. The first one is an application of the approach to selecting substation configuration. The second one is the evaluation of effects of substation configuration changes on the risks of both source and load points. The third one provides an application of the presented method to the determination of a transmission line arrangement supplying two substations.

  • Power System Scenario Analysis

    While monitoring the prevailing operating conditions, an operator is constantly presented with situations in which he needs to make a decision on his next move. As part of the system operating order or process book, utilities document closely what the operational limits and thresholds are for their major substations, transmission lines, and transformers. They also document broadly the type of mitigating actions operators need to take to return the system to within these operating limits so as to remove problems such as voltage and power flow violations. The decision support system required for power system control includes the infrastructure to perform switching actions and a tool for scenario analysis. Different assumptions and specifications regarding the controls in a power flow can be used to represent different scenarios of the system. These scenarios include prefault and postfault system conditions.

  • Installation

    In this chapter, practical information has been collected from hundreds of GIS projects over the last thirty years. The assembly of GIS equipment is complex and requires detailed planning and coordination of the work. Safety considerations and helpful assembly tips are provided. It describes that the individuals involved in the installation of GIS should be fully qualified, aware of the high voltage electrical and mechanical hazards, and the chemical handling aspects of the work. The project planning includes preliminary site surveys, core borings, security assessments, identification of environmentally sensitive areas, training etc. Visual inspections, testing for control of cables, bus leakage and gas quality checks, main circuit resistance measurement, mechanical switching checks, interlocking checks, grounding measurements are some of the recommended tests are explained.

  • Conclusion

    Gas insulated switchgear or substations (GIS) have been successfully in use for almost 40 years with an increasing use world wide. High reliability and higher efficiency has been reached over the last four decades. The share of GIS of all projects world wide is increasing in comparison to air insulated substations and mixted technology substations reflects this situation in numbers. This conclusion chapter states that the book focuses on the general typically GIS solution, with many examples.
