  • Using the mobile substations in 132Kv network and studying their effects on the losses of network

    In most cases, distribution companies have to construct 20 Kv long lines for feeding far loads, while most of the time, the high voltage lines are passing by these loads. In this paper, the possibility of using the mobile substations connected to aforementioned high voltage lines for feeding this kind of loads and also the effect of using these substations on the network losses is studied. An economic analysis is done about the time needed for regaining investments of buying mobile substation by the help of decreasing the network losses. The suggested models are tested by the help of a simulation on DIgSILENT software and a simple distribution network.

  • Mobile Substations: Application, Engineering and Structural Dynamics

    The current trend in reducing the erection time of substations has driven to the use of pre-mounted assemblies for quick installation in all kind of forms. In such cases the substation components have to be transported mounted in their operation position. Mobile substations are the clearest example. Mobile substations present specific characteristics which make the substation designer to be confronted with problems not affecting to conventional substations (AIS or GIS). The substation equipment must be fixed to a semi- trailer considering the space limitation, insulation distances and not only static but dynamic loads due to transport. The equipment must be fitted in a way to allow a fast installation requiring minimum work. Regular substation components with its support structures have natural frequencies in the normal range of transport motion and then dynamic loads due to vibrations have to be considered. The dynamic forces that occur during transport are of long duration and metal-fatigue has to be taken into account. This paper intends to give an overview of the singular engineering of mobile substations and the special considerations for the application of those substations in the North- American electric network

  • Design considerations in development of Active Mobile Substations

    While conventional mobile substations are used to bypass the whole substation in case of loss or maintenance of power transformers, Active Mobile Substations (AMS) can be used in normal conditions as a power router and contingencies as a recovery transformer. The AMS is a mobile substation with integrated power electronics and by controlling its throughput power can be connected across different transformers of the grid. The AMS is expected to be at least 20MVA with 230kV and 69kV outputs. This paper proposes transmission- level active mobile substations that provide back-up in case of power transformer failure or forced reduced operation scenarios in addition to power flow control for seasonal renewable energy transmission. These functions altogether have been aggregated not only because of the technical merits but also to address the economic concerns regarding the cost of the power electronics for transmission applications. In this paper, design considerations in development of the AMS will be provided in terms of power electronics building blocks, converter system control and its effects, and required supervisory control. Throughout the paper, theoretical analyses and relevant results are presented.

  • Control of Active Mobile Substations under system faults

    While conventional mobile substations are used to bypass the whole substation in case of loss or maintenance of power transformers, Active Mobile Substations (AMS) can be used both in normal conditions as a power router and in contingencies as a recovery transformer. The AMS is a mobile substation with integrated power electronics. By controlling its throughput power, it can be connected across different transformers of the grid. This paper explores transmission-level active mobile substations that provide back-up in case of power transformer failure or forced reduced operation scenarios in addition to power flow control for seasonal renewable energy transmission. The AMS must be designed to operate satisfactorily under typical fault and unbalanced conditions. In this paper, component design considerations in development of the AMS under unbalanced operating condition will be provided, and a new control strategy is proposed to control AMS under unbalanced operating conditions when component design is not sufficient to prevent overcurrent and trips. Detailed PSCAD simulation for the proposed control scheme is performed and results are presented. Experimental results are also shown to verify the proposed control method under unbalanced operating conditions.

  • Permanent Solutions for Temporary Loads an Alternate Approach to Electric System Design for Short-Term Loading

    Traditional open-air substations are common among electric utilities and are generally considered to be the most economical method to serve industrial size loads. Additionally, they require a relatively large and permanent amount of land with a design life of 40 years and are typically only economical when designed for a specific propose for its distribution of power. However, these designs are not conducive to the requirements of the relatively short-term and/or mobile loads associated with industrial oil and gas production. The use of open-air substations with this type of short-term load can leave the utility with a large stranded investment in equipment that cannot be easily relocated when the short-term load is no longer needed. This paper explores an alternative approach to the use of open-air substations to serve these large but shorter-term loads.

  • Energy quality and efficiency of an open pit mine distribution system: An evaluation

    This paper presents an energy quality evaluation of an open pit mine distribution system. A number of operational disruptions affecting mine shovels have been related to energy quality. Previous investigations have highlighted the large presence of harmonics as the main factor responsible for these problems. The aim of this paper is to produce an energy quality baseline and a precise diagnosis of the source and nature of the energy quality issues based on standards and the susceptibility of different technologies used by the shovels at the site. The random nature of the load composed by multiple shovels and drills requires computer simulation to predict worst-case scenarios. For this purpose a voltage regulation and harmonic distortion study was conducted with the model parameters tuned by measurements taken in mobile substations of the mine energy loop. A major aim of this study is to establish the relationship between energy quality and energy efficiency.

  • Energy quality and efficiency of an open pit mine distribution system: An improvement

    This paper presents a solution to energy quality problems in an open pit mine distribution system. Specifically, mine shovel operation is frequently disrupted by energy quality issues. A number of alternative approaches to deal with this problem include: the use of reactive power compensator technologies (i.e. passive filters; electronically switched capacitor banks and static VAR compensators), imposing limits to mining cable lengths, increasing cross sections of the surface cables and increasing the power of mobile substations. However, for this industrial site those alternatives fail to obtain the desired power quality and are not compatible with a potential expansion of the mine pit. This paper presents a solution based on IEEE recommended practices by adding a new feeder with higher rated voltage to the mine loop. The result is better shovel availability, a reduction in arc flash risk and a 9.55% improvement in energy efficiency. There is also a carbon footprint reduction of 10.7 kTon of CO2per year.
