Download Control and Automation of Electrical Power Distribution by James Northcote-Green PDF

By James Northcote-Green

Imposing the automation of electrical distribution networks, from easy handheld remote control to the applying of software-based determination instruments, calls for many issues, akin to assessing charges, picking out the keep an eye on infrastructure sort and automation point, settling on the ambition point, and justifying the answer via a enterprise case. regulate and Automation of electrical energy Distribution structures addresses all of those matters to help you in resolving automation difficulties and bettering the administration of your distribution community. Bringing jointly automation options as they practice to application distribution structures, this quantity provides the theoretical and useful information of a regulate and automation resolution for the total distribution process of substations and feeders. the basics of this answer contain intensity of keep an eye on, obstacles of keep an eye on accountability, phases of automation, automation depth degrees, and automatic gadget preparedness. to fulfill particular functionality targets, the authors speak about distribution making plans, functionality calculations, and defense to facilitate the choice of the first gadget, linked secondary keep watch over, and fault signs. The booklet additionally offers case stories that illustrate the company case for distribution automation (DA) and techniques for calculating merits, together with the overview of workforce time rate reductions. As utilities attempt for larger economies, DA, besides different instruments defined during this quantity, support to accomplish more advantageous administration of the distribution community. utilizing regulate and Automation of electrical energy Distribution platforms, you could embark at the automation answer most suitable in your wishes.

Example text

Basically, remote control is added to local automation so that the operator will be informed of any operation of the device under local automation and can either suppress this local action or make the decision remotely. Local manual operation to override the intelligence is a mandatory feature. 7 Decision tree showing the logical steps to the implementation of local or central automation of a primary switch. 3, where remote control was selected, two forms of decision making are possible, either a remotely located central process that incorporates a systemwide perspective or manually initiated remote control (human decision making).

What accuracy, quantity, and parameters of measurement are necessary? Will the implementation be an automation Level 1 or Level 2 application? These decisions configure the number of sensors, the type of intelligent device, and the communication burden. ), and second, the specification of the function of the intelligent device (full protection or simple communication interface). Thus, the selection of all the major components within the feeder device is key. Once defined, the communication media and the protocol have to be selected and integrated into the complete DA architecture.

The results of this decision tree in terms of meeting the basic definition of distribution automation are as follows: • • • Switches must have remote-control operation capability. Decision making is implemented, either located locally in intelligent secondary devices (IEDs) centrally in a DA server, in combination with both local and central decision making or through human intervention remotely. Local operation must be possible either mechanically or by pushbutton. 8 Stages of distribution automation for extended control.
