  • Smart Grid distribution automation for public power

    A significant opportunity within Smart Grid is distribution power delivery through advanced protection and switching such as fault detection isolation restoration (FDIR), voltage reduction, and volt/var control. Many utilities and public power companies are currently involved in four areas of development and pilot projects, FDIR and volt/var control via a distribution management system (DMS), and distributed substation control (DSC). For large Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) it is likely they will employ all solutions. Due to fewer source and load interactions, Public Power may not require the same functionality. The purpose of the paper is to present the solutions for FDIR and volt/var control. Further discussion will include factors when a utility, public power or municipality should select only distributed substation control (DSC).

  • Discussion on intelligent distribution automation system construction mode

    During the course of upgrading urban and rural power grids at large scale in China, distribution automation construction of Jinan Power Supply Company has some success. This thesis analyzes technical limitations of Jinan Power Supply Company ten years ago and points out four problems of traditional distribution automation system.

  • Loss minimization and load balancing in a distribution network

    All distribution network in South Korea are operated by Distribution Management System (DMS) of KEPCO. The DMS is configured by communication infrastructures, automatic switches, reclosers, and tie-switches on a radial system. Change of a tie-switch location determining a loss and a load capacity of each feeder can take an operational efficiency such as an economic advantage by loss minimization and load balancing in distribution automation system. Because customers' load patterns in a distribution network are different by time, region, seasons, and special events. Loss minimization and load balancing are considered by each but they were not considered together because their numerical unit criteria are different. Therefore, this paper proposes an algorithm in order to consider loss minimization and load balancing together. The proposed algorithm is verified by practical distribution networks of Jeju in South Korea.

  • Distribution automation system modeling based on information sharing

    Distribution management system consists of distribution automation system, superior dispatching automation system, production management system, GIS, marketing management system, 95598 customer service system, etc. By means of information sharing and function integration between the related systems, the related functions such as outage management, user interaction and access control of distributed powers could be implemented. The implementation of model maintenance at source-side, information sharing, which could solve the problems of repeated modeling and information island, has a very important significance for the construction of the distribution network system. IEC 61970 and IEC 61968 provide with standards and technical directions for system interconnection and information sharing in the distribution network system. Because of various distribution devices and wirings, distribution modeling methods will have some difference in detail in each system. The distribution automation system could share the device parameters in dispatching automation system and G IS system, but in order to ensure the rapidity of network topology analysis and the correctness of feeder fault location, the topology model and graphics exported from the GIS system couldn't be used directly in distribution automation system. In addition, distribution network modified frequently which leads to frequent modeling of distribution network in China, so it is important to maintain the model consistency between distribution automation system and G IS system. This paper proposed an expansion method of C IM in distribution automation system, recommended the concept of the circuit and feeder group, introduced the steps of distribution model splicing by use of the power dispatching automation system and GIS system model, and introduced the model synchronization method in generating a distribution expansion model and maintain related systems. In this way, we en sure the mod el source-side maintenance and meet the requirement of DAS applications. The actual application in some DAS projects shows that the extension of standard C IM model and the model method based on information sharing are effective and practical.
