You, Yue ; Kim, Yeon-Hee ; Zheng, Tai-Ying ; Kang, Yong-Cheol ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 60, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1299~1304

A wind turbine (WT) should be shut down as fast as possible to minimize its own damage in a storm-driven situation. Shutdown of a large wind farm requires a power grid to have a ramp-up capability large enough to balance between generation and consumption of electrical energy. This paper proposes a supervised shutdown algorithm of a wind farm to meet a required ramp-down rate in a grid code in the case of a storm-driven situation. The information on the speed and the direction of wind is measured at a wind mast (WM) installed around a wind farm. If the wind speed exceeds a cut-out speed, the number of WTs to be shut down simultaneously is decided to meet a required ramp-down rate of a grid-code. Arrival times to each WT from the WM are calculated and sorted in the order of time. Then a sequence of groups is generated. The shutdown start/end times of each group are decided to avoid superposition between adjacent two groups. The performance of the proposed shutdown algorithm is verified under various storm scenarios. Results indicate that the proposed algorithm can not only protect the wind farm in the case of a storm-driven situation but also meet the required ramp-down rate. In addition, the algorithm can produce more energy than that of a conventional shutdown algorithm.

Jeon, Jin-Hong ; Kim, Kyoung-Hoon ; Hwang, Chul-Sang ; Kim, Jang-Mok ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 60, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1331~1338
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2011.60.7.1331
This paper proposes a method for frequency control of islanded microgrid with battery energy storage system. For frequency control of islanded microgrid, battery energy storage system uses a phase locked loop algorithm with positive sequence components for a fast frequency estimation. Microgrid is a power system with small inertia because it has small capacity generators and inverter systems for renewable energy. So, Islanded microgrid`s frequency varies fast and large as small generation and load changes. To reduce frequency variation of islanded microgrid, it needs a device with fast frequency response. For fast frequency response, a fast frequency tracking is important. To show the validation of proposed fast frequency tracking algorithm, battery energy storage system with proposed algorithm is tested in microgrid pilot plant.

Park, Byung-Sung ; Hur, Kyeon ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 60, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1347~1353
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2011.60.7.1347
While most of the existing protection schemes have been designed with local information around individual components, these local schemes are not considered capable of protecting the modern electric power gird with growing complexity. Recent blackouts in North America and Europe have renewed the emphasis on coordinated protection and control actions to avoid systemwide blackouts, utilizing all of the available grid information. Thus, this paper proposes a new methodology, Agent-based Colored Petri Net (ACPN) modeling for systematically representing, modeling and analyzing information flows and interactions among the entities of the electric power grid. The paper demonstrates its efficacy and accuracy by investigating an ACPN model of a wide area protection system for a typical power grid. The proposed modeling and analysis schemes may further provide a framework to help assure reliability and interoperability of diverse smart grid components.

The resonant converter cause the high voltage stress according to the input voltage, which increases the conduction loss in converter power switches. The topology of LLC half bridge resonant converter provides ZVS characteristic and also the stress of voltage and current is smaller than that of the general resonant converters. So we can expect the higher efficiency. In this paper, the analysis of the characteristics of the converter efficiency and the best conditions for highest efficiency were investigated. As a result, the efficiency of utilizing up to 93% is achieved.

A coaxial-conical-radial transmission line conversion circuits have been investigated to realize a low loss high performance microwave power divider/combiner. In order to optimize the characteristics of the device, the power divider/combiner was designed separately with two parts-the inner part and the outer part. Utilizing the rectangular approximation of the outer part, we can design the low loss device which is not affected by the partition number N of the outer part. The small return loss which is lower than 20dB was obtained on the frequency range of 5.15GHz(7.45~12.60GHz). A conical connector was employed for smooth connection between the central coaxial line and the outer radial line. Making use of the
2-stage conical connector, the return loss lower than 30dB was obtained on the operating frequency range of 5GHz. The total return loss of the designed divider/combiner was lower than 20dB on the frequency range of 5GHz for the partition number N

The fundamental research for the mobile robot navigation using the numerical optimization method is presented. We define the mobile robot navigation problem as an unconstrained optimization problem to minimize the cost function with the pose error between the goal position and the position of a mobile robot. Using the nonlinear least squares optimization method, the optimal speeds of the left and right wheels can be found as the solution of the optimization problem. Especially, the rotational speed of wheels of a mobile robot can be directly related to the overall speed of a mobile robot using the Jacobian derived from the kinematic model. It will be very useful for applying to the mobile robot navigation. The performance was evaluated using the simulation.

The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 60, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1417~1426
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2011.60.7.1417
Radiofrequency ablation through cardiac catheterization is one of minimally invasive intervention procedures used in drug resistant arrhythmia treatment. To facilitate more accurate and precise catheter navigation, systems for robotic cardiac catheter navigation have been developed and commercialized. The authors have been developing a novel robotic catheter navigation system. The system is a network-based master-slave configuration 3-DOF (Degree-Of-Freedom) robotic manipulator for operation with conventional cardiac ablation catheter. The catheter manipulation motion is composed of the translation (forward/backward) and the roll movements of the catheter and knob rotation for the catheter tip articulation. The master manipulator comprises an operator handle compartment for the knob and the roll movement input, and a base platform for the translation movement input. The slave manipulator implements a robotic catheter platform in which conventional cardiac catheter is mounted and the 3-DOF motions of the catheter are controlled. The system software that runs on a realtime OS based PC, implements the master-slave motion synchronization control in the robot system. The master-slave motion synchronization performance tested with step, sinusoidal and arbitrarily varying motion commands showed satisfactory results with acceptable level of steady state error. The developed system will be further improved through evaluation of safety and performance in in vitro and in vivo tests.

This study describes a conductive fabric sensor and determines an optimum excitation frequency of the sensor to evaluate knee joint movements. Subjects were composed of 15 males (age:
) with no known problems with their knee joints. The upper side of subjects` lower limbs was divided into two areas and the lower side of subjects` lower limbs was divided into three areas. The sensors were attached to 1 for 3 spot from a hip joint and to 3 for 4 spot from a knee joint which are the optimum conductive fabric sensor configuration to evaluate knee joint movements. As a result, the optimum excitation frequency for evaluating knee joint movements using conductive fabric sensors was 25 kHz. Average and standard deviation of bio-impedance changes from 15 subjects were
at 25 kHz. The difference of bio-impedance changes between 25 kHz and 50 kHz was statistically significant (p<0.05) and the difference of bio-impedance changes between 25 kHz and 100 kHz was also statistically significant (p<0.001). These results showed that conductive fabric sensors are more sensitive to measure bio-impedance for evaluating knee joint movements as an excitation frequency decreases.

Cho, Yong-Sun ; Choi, Hyo-Sang ; Kim, Deog-Goo ; Go, Sung-Pil ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 60, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1438~1443

The increase of power capacity in the superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is essential for application into the power grid. To achieve this, when superconducting units were connected in series and parallel, the unbalanced quenching characteristics between superconducting units generated by different critical current behavior should be improved. In the transformer-type SFCL, the superconducting units connected in series could be simultaneously quenched by the connection of neutral lines between secondary coils and superconducting units. From this the consumed power in superconducting units was equally distributed. In addition, the more the turn ratio of the transformer was reduced, the more consumed power in the superconducting units was reduced by the decrease of the induction voltage generated in the superconducting units. From those results, the transformer-type SFCL using neutral lines could increase the power capacity of the SFCL by the equal power division into the superconducting units.

An analysis of the causes of railroad crossing accidents reveals that most train collision accidents that occur when safety crossing devices are functioning normally occur because vehicles either experience engine failure on the tracks or because drivers were not notified of the coming train, in which case they get trapped on the tracks when the crossing barriers descend. To prevent such an accident, obstacle detection device by using laser beams detecting the presence of obstacle and crossing bar direction controller by moving direction detection sensor using the Earth`s magnetic field detection technology are used in the railroad crossing. Despite using the obstacles detector and crossing bar direction controller in the railroad crossing, the equipments for the railroad crossing does not prevent accidents completely. Therefore, this research has studied new method that can detect obstacles through image analyze and alternate existing equipments. There will be excellent effect to be preventing railroad crossing accident by developing a reliable and new obstacle detecting device.
