Abstract [en]

New requirement on power systems analysis tools consider information exchange for both steady-state and system dynamics information. New European regulations on information exchange power system dynamic simulations now require coordinating TSOs operations under different scenarios, some of which require to assess the dynamic behavior of power systems under a vast array of contingencies. As a mean to comply with these regulations and to advance the state-of-the-art, this work describes the software architecture of a Model-To-Model (M2M) transformation tool to create power system dynamic models using Modelica components by linking it to data from the Common Information Model (CIM). This software architecture is conceived to combine the CIM standard language with the Modelica standardized language, and to provide a Free/LibreOpen Source Software (FLOSS) CIM-compliant unambiguous power system modeling solution considering both steady-state and dynamic model representations of the electrical grid.

Abstract [en]

With the current increase of distributed generation in distribution networks, line congestions and PQ issues are expected to increase. The smart grid may effectively coordinate DER, only when supported by a comprehensive architecture for automation. In IDE4L project such architecture is designed based on monitoring, control and business use cases. The IDE4L instance of SGAM architecture is derived and explained in details. The automation actor are specified in terms of interfaces, database and functions. The division in these three layers boosted the implementation phase as dedicated interfaces, databases or application has been developed in a modular way and can be installed in different HW/SW. Some implementation instances are presented and the main output of the architecture is discussed with regards to some indexes as communication traffic and level of distribution of automation functions.

Abstract [en]

European regulations on information exchange have put new requirements on analysis tools, the main one being the adoption of the IEC Common Information Model (CIM) that may help interoperability across applications. This paper proposes the use of Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) methods to meet these new requirements. Specifically, this paper shows how to apply Model-to-Model (M2M) transformations. The M2M method presented herein allows to work directly with the information and mathematical description and computer implementation of dynamic models, independent from specific analysis tools. The M2M method proposed requires the development of a mapping between CIM/UML and the Modelica language, which allows to derive Modelica models of physical power systems for dynamic simulations.

Abstract [en]

The rapid increase of Intermittent Energy Resources (IER) there is a need to have dispatchable production available to ensure secure operation and increase opportunity for energy system flexibility. Gas turbine-based power plants offer flexible operation that is being improved with new technology advancements. Those plants provide in general, quick start together with significant ramping capability, which can be exploited to balance IERs. Consequently, to understand this potential source of flexibility, better models for gas turbines are required for power systems studies and analysis. In this work both the required semantic information and physical behavior models of such multi-domain systems are considered. First, UML class diagrams and RDF schemas based on the Common Information Model (CIM) standards are used to describe the semantic information of the electrical power grid. An extension that exploits the ISO 15926 standard is herein proposed to derive the multi-domain semantics required by integrated electrical power grid with detailed gas turbine dynamic models. Second, the Modelica language is employed to create the equation-based models which represent the behavior of a multi-domain physical system. A comparative simulation analysis between the power system domain model and the multi-domain model has been performed. Some differences between the turbine dynamics representation of the commonly used GGOV1 standard model and a more detailed gas turbine model are shown.

Abstract [en]

Synchrophasor measurements from Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) are the primary sensors used to deploy Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection and Control (WAMPAC) systems. PMUs stream out synchrophasor measurements through the IEEE C37.118.2 protocol using TCP/IP or UDP/IP. The proposed method establishes a direct communication between two PMUs, thus eliminating the requirement of an intermediate phasor data concentrator, data mediator and/or protocol parser and thereby ensuring minimum communication latency without considering communication link delays. This method allows utilizing synchrophasor measurements internally in a PMU to deploy custom protection and control algorithms. These algorithms are deployed using protection logic equations which are supported by all the PMU vendors. Moreover, this method reduces overall equipment cost as the algorithms execute internally in a PMU and therefore does not require any additional controller for their deployment. The proposed method can be utilized for fast prototyping of wide-area measurements based protection and control applications. The proposed method is tested by coupling commercial PMUs as Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) with Opal-RT’s eMEGAsim Real-Time Simulator (RTS). As illustrative example, anti-islanding protection application is deployed using proposed method and its performance is assessed. The essential points in the method are:

•  Bypassing intermediate phasor data concentrator or protocol parsers as the synchrophasors are communicated directly between the PMUs (minimizes communication delays).

•  Wide Area Protection and Control Algorithm is deployed using logic equations in the client PMU, therefore eliminating the requirement for an external hardware controller (cost curtailment)

•  Effortless means to exploit PMU measurements in an environment familiar to protection engineers

Abstract [en]

Distribution grid dynamics are becoming increasingly complex due to the transition of these networks from passive to active networks. This transition requires increasing the observability and awareness of the interactions between Transmission and Distribution (T&D) grids, particularly to guarantee adequate operational security. As part of the work carried out in the EU-funded IDE4L project, a specific use case, containing PMU-based monitoring functions, has been defined to support the architecture design of a distribution grid automation system. As a result, the architecture can accommodate for synchrophasor applications that provide key dynamic information extraction and exchange between DSO and TSO. This paper presents the use case and the portion of the IDE4L architecture that accommodates for scenarios that exploit synchrophasors for monitoring applications.
