Park, Ji-Kyung ; Chung, Se-Jin ; Kim, Chul-Hwan ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 64, issue 9, 2015, Pages 1269~1275
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2015.64.9.1269
Turbine-generator torsional response is caused by interaction between electrical transient air-gap torque and mechanical characteristics of turbine-generator shafts. There are various factors that affects torsional interaction such as fault, circuit breaker switching and generator mal-synchronizing, etc. Fortunately, we can easily simulate above torsional interaction phenomena by using ElectroMagnetic Transient Program (EMTP). However, conventional EMTP shows the incomplete response of super- synchronous torsional mode since it does not consider turbine blade section. Therefore, in this paper, we introduced mechanical-electrical analogy for detailed modeling of turbine-generator shaft system including low pressure turbine blade section. In addition, we derived the natural frequencies of modeled turbine-generator shaft system including turbine blade section and analyzed the characteristics of mechanical torque response at shaft coupling and turbine blade root area according to power system balanced/unbalanced faults.

Among the various statistical factors for South Korea, the population has been steadily decreased by lower birthrate. Nevertheless, the number of household is constantly increasing amid population aging and single life style. In general, residential electricity use is more the result of the number of household than the population. Therefore, residential electricity consumption is expected to be far higher for decades to come. The existing long-term load forecasting, however, do not necessarily reflect the growth of single and two-member households. In this respect, this paper proposes the long-term load forecasting for residential users considering the effect of changes of the housing type, and in the case study the changes of the residential load pattern is analyzed for accurate long-term load forecasting.

Goo, Sun-Geun ; Han, Ki-Sun ; Kwak, Joo-Sik ; Joo, Hyung-Jun ; Jeong, Moon-Gyu ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 64, issue 9, 2015, Pages 1281~1287
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2015.64.9.1281
We report the characteristics and differences of two types of attenuation measurement methods for electromagnetic partial discharge signal in GIS. The pulse method is to measure the attenuated waveforms in time domain and coverts them into frequency domain to get the attenuation spectra of given GIS section. This method simulates the real partial discharge signal. The frequency swept continuous wave method can obtain attenuation spectra directly so that it gives attenuation with low noise floor and simplicity. We show that both methods are effective and exchangeable because the attenuation results measured by two methods have similar trends

Lee, Seong-Doo ; Choi, Soon-Ho ; Kim, Chan-Ki ; Cha, HanJu ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 64, issue 9, 2015, Pages 1288~1296

The ac side current of a line commutated converter(LCC) high voltage direct current (HVDC) is characterized by highly non-sinusoidal waveform. If the harmonic current is allowed to flow in the connected ac network, it may cause unacceptable levels of distortion. Therefore, ac side filters are required as part of the total HVDC converter station, in order to reduce the harmonic distortion of the ac side current and voltage to acceptably low levels. The ac filters are also employed to compensate the requested reactive power because LCC HVDC also consume substantial reactive power. Among different types of filters, triple-tuned filters have been widely utilized for HVDC system. This paper presents two design methods of triple-tuned filter; equivalent method and parametric method. Using a parametric method, in particular this paper proposes a design algorithm for a triple tuned filter. Finally, the performance of the design algorithm is evaluated for a 250kV HVDC system in Jeju island. The results cleary demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed design method in harmonics reduction.
Performance Improvement of DC-link Control for a Dynamic Voltage Restorer with Power Feedforward Compensation
Ji, Kyun Seon ; Jou, Sung Tak ; Lee, Kyo-Beum ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 64, issue 9, 2015, Pages 1297~1305
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2015.64.9.1297
This paper proposes a power feedforward technique for the performance improvement of DC-link voltage control in the dynamic voltage restorer (DVR). The DC-link Voltage is able to be unstable for an instant owing to any change in the load and voltage sag. The distortion of the DC-link voltage leads to the negative influence on the performance of DVR. To mitigate the distortion of the DC-link voltage, the power feedforward component is calculated by the load power and the grid voltage, and then it is added to the reference current of the conventional DC-link voltage controller. By including output power feedforward component on the DC-link controller, the DC-link voltage can settle down more quickly than when the conventional DC-link voltage controller applied. The proposed technique was validated through the simulation and experimental results.

DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2015.64.9.1306
This paper deals with a switching method of a three-phase interleaved bidirectional DC-DC converter to obtain high efficiency in wide load range. The proposed soft-switching method provides ZVS and ZCS at turn-on, and ZVS at turn-off of the switch as well as considerably reduced conduction loss in light load. Simulation and experiment are carried out with a bidirectional DC-DC converter having the power rating of 3 [kW], and those results show the validity of the proposed switching method.

Sin, Eun-Suk ; Kim, Hyun-Jun ; Han, Byung-Moon ;
The Transactions of The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers, volume 64, issue 9, 2015, Pages 1315~1322
DOI : 10.5370/KIEE.2015.64.9.1315
This paper proposes an active islanding detection method for the BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) with 3-phase inverter which is connected to the AC grid. The proposed method adopts the DDSRF (Decoupled Double Synchronous Reference Frame) PLL (Phase Locked-Loop) so that the independent control of positive-sequence and negative-sequence current is successfully carried out using the detected phase angle information. The islanding state can be detected by sensing the variation of negative-sequence voltage at the PCC (Point of Common Connection) due to the injection of 2-3% negative-sequence current from the BESS. The proposed method provides a secure and rapid detection under the variation of negative-sequence voltage due to the sag and swell. The feasibility of proposed method was verified by computer simulations with PSCAD/EMTDC and experimental analyses with 5kW hardware prototype for the benchmark circuit of islanding detection suggested by IEEE 1547 and UL1741. The proposed method would be applicable for the secure detection of islanding state in the grid-tied Microgrid.

It is necessary to study on acoustic and vibratory response of a MEMS resonant accelerometer before applying to military applications. In this paper, we analyze why the resonant accelerometer reacts to an acoustic wave and a high frequency vibration. And we describe experimental results on acoustic and vibratory response of the accelerometer. The accelerometer consists of a proof mass and a dual ended tuning fork. It is a differential resonant accelerometer with arranging a pair of accelerometers. The mode shape was analyzed to find out the input mode frequency by using a FEM simulation. Some experiments regarding the acoustic noise was carried out by using a tweeter and a microphone in the anechoic room. Results showed that the accelerometer reacted to the acoustic wave and vibration which had the input mode frequency as we had expected. We showed experimentally not only that the susceptibility of the accelerometer to an acoustic wave was 70 dB but also that the effectiveness of applying an acoustic absorber and a metal case was 20 dB, respectively. Also, we could minimize the vibratory response property of the accelerometer by installing a IMU with a silicone rubber mount pad.

Curve subdivision interpolation reconstructs edge well with low complexity, however it lacks of ability to recover texture components, instead. While, neighbor embedding is superior in texture reconstruction. Therefore, in this paper, a novel Super Resolution technique which combines curve subdivision interpolation and neighbor embedding is proposed. First, edge region and non-edge regions are classified. Then, for edge region, the curve subdivision algorithm is used to make two polynomials derived from discrete pixels and adaptive weights are adapted for gradients of 4 different sides to make smooth edge. For non edge region, neighbor-embedding method is used to conserve texture property in original image. Consequently results show that the proposed technique conserves sharp edges and details in texture better, simultaneously.

This paper is analysis of multiple factor that should be considered in the design of an eddy current brake used as auxiliary brake system. The eddy current brake is a brake that generates a braking torque in a rotational direction opposite to the direction of the rotor by using a time-varying magnetic flux. The eddy current brake has the advantage of being able to take high current densities because this is used for a short period of time. Also, the eddy current brake is influenced by multiple factor such as number of slots, teeth width, coating thickness, air-gap length and so on. Therefore the eddy current brake was designed for use in railway application in consideration of the operation region and critical parameters.

Recently, various researches are conducted in the application of regenerative energy produced during the operation of an electric locomotive. Regenerative energy is produced by a generator in the brake procedure. The generator is operated by kinetic energy of an electric railroad using an electric motor. The process of producing regenerative energy varies with the current type of a railroad and its running condition. The quality of electric power can be improved and electric energy can be utilized effectively, especially in the use of an energy storage system (ESS). Thus, it is necessary to apply ESS into AC section and high speed railway. This study analyses the composition of the regenerative ESS equipment installed in Yong-Jeong sectioning post, operational principle, charge and discharge algorithm and energy efficiency. The analysis shows that CO2 emissions can be reduced about 0.5 ton per a day. In addition, ESS helps saving the energy and the compensation of the voltage drop caused by the operation of high speed train when it is installed at the end of the feeder section. The number of high speed train will be increased continuously related to the electrification rate. Therefore, applying the ESS to high speed railway is expected to solve the instability of the feeder voltage and the equipment capacity problem caused by the high speed trains.

These two types of conditions for the catenary systems are critically assessed for management and are becoming increasingly more dependent on reliable inspection system. In this paper, a new measurement system which enables inspection of catenary faults was studied and implemented. The system uses wavelength band of ultraviolet (UV) and IR (Infrared) to measure the insulation of corona and temperature of catenary wire. In order to determine the sensitivity of implemented system, the performance test such as distance detection range of UV camera and temperature resolution of IR camera were conducted, respectively. The field test of development system was also conducted in metro and high-speed line using mobile type UV and IR multi-composited measurement systems.
