  • Integration of solar photovoltaic (PV) to LV distribution network: a case study

    The development of renewable energy sources will increase the amount of generation connected to distribution networks. The main advantages are that optimally located distributed generation resources can reduce or postpone the need for investment in the transmission and distribution infrastructure; transmission and distribution losses are reduced as well as improvement in power quality and system ...

  • Harmonic and interharmonic distortion analysis in the grid-connected wind electric generator

    The operation of wind turbines has an impact on the power quality at the connected electric network. The integration of wind electric generators with the power grid becomes a headache for power engineers in several aspects. Harmonic distortion is one of the most important phenomena which affect the grid performance. This paper provides an in-depth discussion on harmonic and interharmonic ...

  • A dynamic virtual power station model comprising small-scale energy zones

    Concerns over global warming and high oil prices are expected to lead to a continuous increase in electricity generated by distributed renewable energy sources and small-scale embedded generators (SSEGs). This increase in SSEG will pose numerous technical challenges for distribution network operators. The small-scale energy zone (SSEZ) concept seeks to overcome these challenges using appropriate ...

  • Fault characteristics in electrical equipment

    Proper design and installation of electrical equipment minimizes the chance of electrical faults. Faults occur when the insulation system is compromised and current is allowed to flow through an unintentional path. IEEE Std 493 Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems1 publishes data that reports that the vast majority of faults are classified as ...

  • On-site regeneration of transformer oil

    Regeneration of transformer oil at the transformer’s location is an important preventive measure of transformer servicing.   Transformer life time is, in essence, the life time of its insulation system. The most widely used insulation is liquid insulation (transformer oils) and solid insulation (paper, i.e. cellulose insulation). The oil provides for at ...

  • The Emerging Power of Microgrids

    Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...
