  • Guiding a Power System Restoration with an Expert System

    Our civilization has become so dependent on a steady supply of electric power that a blackout bears an enormous economic cost. Minimizing the amount of time needed to restore a power system helps reduce this cost and the public's resentment over the interruption of service. An expert system can help the operator achieve this goal by providing actualized restoration plans, dependable recommendations and a clear picture of the situation. A hierarchical structure has been adopted for the prototype expert system described in this paper. This structure separates the selection of the next objective (strategic reasoning) from the development of a plan showing how this objective can be achieved (tactical reasoning). This separation enables the system to quickly adapt its recommendations when a problem arises during the res toration. Planning connection paths through substations of widely different configurations is greatly facilitated by the adoption of a hierarchical description of the topology of these substations. This knowledge representation scheme is the symbolic equivalent of the one-line diagrams used by the operators.

  • System Control Centers and Telecommunications

    Telecommunications equipment is used to communicate information electronically between the electric system control centers (ESCC) and the several remote terminal units (RTUs). This chapter discusses the equipment used in ESCCs, RTUs, and telecommunications. The basic operation of virtually every electric utility in the United States now relies upon supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. SCADA systems have the capability of providing graphical representation of the generation stations, transmission lines, substations, and distribution lines. Energy management systems (EMS) became a major extension from SCADA with the arrival of advanced computer programs and applications. Wide Area Monitoring Systems (WAMS) is a relatively new approach to help maintain and assure system reliability using remote phasor measuring units (PMU) sensors, telecommunications, and phasor data concentrators (PDCs) in centralized monitoring centers. Synchrophasors or PMUs compare voltage and/or current waveforms across the grid. The modernization of the electric power grid, from generation through consumption, is undergoing substantial change.

  • Generation

    Power plants produce electrical energy on a real???time basis. Power generation plants produce the electrical energy that is ultimately delivered to consumers through transmission lines, substations, and distribution lines. Generation plants or power plants consist of three???phase generator(s), the prime mover, and the energy source to serve as the generator's prime mover, control room, and substation. This chapter discusses the more common types of energy resources used to generate electricity that includes steam turbines, hydro turbines, combustion turbines and renewable energy. Fossil fuel power plants use steam turbines that burn coal, oil, natural gas, or just about any combustible material as the fuel resource. Wind generation has increased in popularity and technology has improved tremendously over the last decade. Solar energy comes in two general categories; solar reflective (mirrors) and solar photovoltaic (panels). Both forms of solar energy production are environmentally friendly as they produce no pollution and considered renewable energy resources.

  • Technology

    The gas insulated substations (GIS) technology is a continuous development process involving new materials, technical functionality, manufacturing processes, quality, and reliability improvements. The design of a GIS follows the rules of pressure vessel design with the exception of the repetitive pressure test after installation. The use of SF6 within the power energy supply is mainly driven by the gas insulated switchgear. To manufacture GIS special requirements related to high voltage conditions need to be fulfilled. GIS are assembled using standard equipment modules to construct a substation that matches the desired electrical one-line diagram of the substation. These standard modules include circuit breakers, current transformers, voltage transformers, disconnect switches, grounding switches, interconnecting bus, surge arresters, and connections to the surrounding power system, such as SF6 gas-to-air bushings, cable sealing ends, and transformer interface modules.
