Choosing the least points to monitor hydraulic structure behavior is the hard core of hydraulic structure safety monitoring design. In this work, spatial monitor-value sample of hydraulic structure and its typical curve surface, such as monitor-value curve surface, are obtained first, using FEM analysis result of the structure. Then this surface is divided into several parts, through cluster analysis and principal component analysis on the spatial character of hydraulic structure monitor value, and each part is assigned one monitoring point to represent its regional safety behavior of the entire structure. Finally, monitoring point layout of hydraulic structure safety is optimized and its assessment method is established based on B-spline surfaces and modeling error theory. Engineering case studies show that the optimization method, a new approach for optimizing monitoring points layout, is effective and practical. © right.

In order to study the effect of different laws regarding the opening and closing of the blade on the runaway transient of a Kaplan turbine, the runaway transient of a Kaplan turbine model in five blade control modes was simulated using the three-dimensional unsteady numerical method. Changes of the rotation speed, flow rate, torques, and pressure fluctuation with time were analyzed, and the pressure distribution on the blade surface and inner flow patterns in the draft tube were examined. The results show that, compared with the maximum runaway speed under the fixed blade conditions, the variation of the maximum runaway speed ranges from -6.6% to 5.0% when the blade angle is changed from -10° to 10°. Opening blades during the runaway transient increases characteristic parameter fluctuations, causes the maximum negative pressure at the central area of the draft tube to reach 2.86 times the initial value, and produces an eccentric spiral vortex rope, which induces strongly low-frequency fluctuation and is adverse to the unit stability. Closing blades can reduce water velocity, alleviate pressure fluctuation, and improve the flow pattern in the draft tube, but reasonable closure modes should be investigated in order to avoid an excessive increase in the runaway speed. © 2016, Editorial Board of Advances in Science and Technology of Water Resources, Hohai University.

A universal wavefront positioning correction method on traveling-wave-based fault-location algorithms is proposed. According to the location accuracy analysis for the faults of which the fault positions change successively, it is noted that the real fault distance generally cannot be divided exactly by the distance corresponding to an integer sampling interval. It will lead to unavoidable truncated error when the discrete sampling points of traveling-wave-based fault-location algorithms are applied. Furthermore, it is disclosed that the fault-location error can be limited within a single sampling interval by the simple wavefront identification method in the event of low sampling rate. In view of the aforementioned two scenarios, an appropriate correction strategy in the event of the appropriate sampling rate is put forward. The fault-location accuracy can be improved greatly with the aid of the proposed correction strategy. The effectiveness of the proposed correction strategy is verified with various typical EMTDC-based simulation test results. © 2012 IEEE.

Existing superimposed-based distance protection possibly maloperates due to some extreme conditions, for instance, an external earth fault occurring while the transmission system operates at a large phase difference between the sources at two sides of the protected line. To solve this problem, an adaptive distance relay using the superimposed component and the information of the opposite end is put forward. The shortages of the existing schemes are first investigated, and the scenarios leading to the maloperations of those schemes in theory are clarified. Furthermore, corresponding countermeasures by means of the floating threshold and criterion switching are introduced. In this case, the reliability and the sensitivity of the superimposed-based distance protection are improved. By means of a variety of comprehensive tests, the feasibility of the proposed scheme is verified. © 2006 IEEE.

This paper presents a novel methodology for the spatial power network planning problem based on the raster map in geographic information systems (GIS). Considering candidate lines and cell linkages, the proposed spatial power network planning model integrates the optimal electric line routing and the power network evaluation, with the objective of the minimum line investment cost. The network connectivity with candidate line routes and the hourly network evaluation for peak power loads are considered to ensure the feasibility of the line path and the security of power systems. The derived mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) formulation is transformed into a mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) problem by integer algebra techniques. Furthermore, in order to improve the computational efficiency, a tighter MILP formulation with the proposed enhanced line routing constraints is proposed. Numerical case studies illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach for the spatial power network planning problem. © 2006 IEEE.

The integration of control-maintenance-management system (CMMS) is the fundamental for the implementation of the intelligent power plants, and the information security is the key issue in the integration for system integration. For this reason, a method to design the security isolation of CMMS is proposed. Present security status of CMMS in large-scale power plants is analyzed, and the security partitioning of the system network is performed and additional security isolation devices are installed in the network channels where potential safety hazards exist; a novel data transmission strategy is designed to ensure that original functions of the system can be normally utilized after the security isolation is installed; a layout scheme for software and hardware to implement the security isolation is given. The proposed system is successfully applied in Gezhouba hydropower station; the results of security test and actual application show that after the security isolation the CMMS operates stably and reliably, so it is proved that the proposed method can provide obvious security protection effect. The proposed system is available for reference to the security design of the integration of the control-maintenance-management system.
