Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to present the design of an adaptive neuro-controller for series connected FACTS devices like Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) and Thyristor controlled Power Angle Regulator (TCPAR). This control scheme is suitable for non-linear system control, in which the exact linearised mathematical model of the system is not required. The proposed controller design is based on Real Time Recurrent Learning (RTRL) algorithm in which the Neural Network (NN) is trained in real time. This control scheme requires two sets of neural networks. The first set is a neuro-identifier and the second set is a neurocontroller which generates the required control signals for the thyristors. Performance of the system is analysed with the proposed controller using standard simulation environments like MATLAB/SIMULINK and it has been observed that the controlleris robust and the response is very fast. Performance of the system with proposed controller is compared with conventional PI controllers and GA based PI controllers. Performace of the proposed controller is extremely good.

Abstract

Though modern technology of new era is mostly dependent on power sector entirely, the current energy scenario is showing a serious negative effect for the last few decades. Comparatively, Bangladesh is facing a precarious effect because of the scarcity of fossil-fuel dissipation. To accomplish the power demand resolution, a new type of power generation is proposed in this research paper. Magnetic flux and solar irradiation is combined to get maximum power outcome. The PV panel supplies the maximum power in the peak solar radiation and terminates the energy stream at night time. However, the floating generator can supply its maximum creation day or night time according to the movement of water wave tendency. For this reason, a PV-floating Generator based integrated renewable energy scheme is inspected in this venture. The experimental result shows its real-world validation (Maximum 14.5 Watt output) comparing to conventional methods.

Abstract

This paper suggested a new contribution of three phase AC to AC matrix converter MC via fuzzy logic controller FLC to enhance the whole system. However, the weakness of matrix converter is that the input- output voltage transfer is control to 87% for input and output waveform. Also, matrix converter is more sensitive to the trouble of input voltage which deteriorates the system performance. To overcome these problems, and to improve the efficiency of system, FLC with matrix converter is proposed to minimize the sensitivity to the load, and to increase voltage transfer. In this paper the currents a,b,c are converted to alpha and beta current via Clarke transformation . In this method two FLC are used. The error (between alpha current and reference current) (e) and the change of this error (de) will apply to first FLC. The output of FLC is actual alpha current. In the other hand, the error of beta current and the change of error are also passes through the second FLC to produce the actual beta current. The actual alpha and beta current is converted to direct and quadrature d-q current by park transformation. The d-q current is converted to (a, b, c) out currents by inverse park transformation, the results of this method express that the matrix converter with FLC is more capable, high accuracy with better efficiency as compared with conventional matrix converter system.

Abstract

In India Electrical Energy is generated mainly Coal based Thermal Power stations and hydro Electric Power Stations. The main aim of power generating company is to provide good quality and reliable power to consumers at minimum cost. The problem of Combined Economic and Emission Dispatch  deals with the minimization of both fuel cost and emission of pollutants such as oxides of Nitrogen and Oxides of Sulphur. In our power system the emission is major problem created that’s why in now a days we move from green energy source or renewable energy such as Sunlight, Wind, Tides, Wave, and Geothermal Heat Energy. The Emission constrained Economic Dispatch problem treats the emission limit as an additional constraint and optimizes the fuel cost. In this paper we optimizes the Combined Economic and Emission Dispatch problem by using two different optimization method such as Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) and Genetic Algorithm (GA).The proposed ABC Algorithm has been successfully implemented is to IEEE 30 bus and Indian Utility sixty two Bus System The simulation result are compare and found the effective algorithm for Combined Economic and Emission Dispatch problem.

Abstract

Harmonics are found to have deleterious effects on power system equipments including transformers, capacitor banks, rotating machines, switchgears and protective relays. Transformers, motors and switchgears may experience increased losses and excessive heating. Shunt filters are effective in minimizing voltage distortions. This paper describes the voltage distortions generated by non linear loads. The harmonic specifications such as harmonic factor, characteristic harmonic and non-characteristic harmonic are considered while explaining the paper. ‘MiPower’ software is used to compute the harmonic distortions in a sample power system. Accurate harmonic models are established for a non linear load. To reduce the harmonic voltages impressed upon specific parts of the sample power system, passive filters are installed at two buses. With the implementation of a passive filter at the bus with non linear load, the harmonics are greatly reduced. For the specified power system, at all the buses the total harmonic distortion has been evaluated.

Abstract

This paper presents a result obtained from a comparative study among three different photovoltaic (PV) module technologies for grid-connected photovoltaic system (GCPV) under Malaysia’s real operating conditions. The obtained results were slightly different from the performance ratio (PR) investigation which showed the average annual performance of 78.2% for polycrystalline, 94.6% for a-Si thin-film and 81% for monocrystalline PV technologies over four years monitored period. The outdoor evaluation results showed that a-Si thin-film PV modules demonstrate the highest and better in terms of final yield, performance ratio and PV array/system efficiency over the entire monitored period. In other hands, a-Si thin-film demonstrated the reliability and better in system performance

Abstract

High costs of installation and maintenance as a result of storage units discourage the use of solar Photovoltaic system for power generation. To reduce these costs, Solar PV systems can be installed without storage units alongside conventional power generation systems. Such that the Solar systems cater for the daytime loads while the conventional generation system caters for loads at other times. This research paper explored the potential of installing Stand-Alone solar PV systems without storage to satisfy the daytime load demand of the Canaanland community. The load profile analysis of the Canaanland community was carried out from load consumption data and the solar power plants were designed based on this analysis. Simulation was carried out using the PV Syst 6.43 software and the result from the design was analyzed. The study revealed that the solar power plant will serve the daytime load of the community during the period of 10:30am-4:30pm daily satisfying the peak and base loads (5.16MW and 0.78MW) of the Canaanland community respectively.
