Disclosed herein is a cable fault diagnosis system and method, wherein when an application signal and a reflected signal overlap each other due to the proximity of a fault location to an application location or when the intensity of the reflected signal is weak and thus falls outside of a prescribed fault diagnosis range due to remoteness of the fault location from the application location, a correction location, at which a correlation function value has a global maximum, is derived on the basis of a prescribed correlation function for an application signal applied to a cable to be inspected and an acquired reflected signal, a correction signal, which is a reflected signal from which the application signal is removed at the derived correction location, is calculated, the distance between the correction location and the acquisition location is derived on the basis of a time delay, which is calculated on the basis of the calculated correction signal and the reflected signal at the acquisition location, and a propagation velocity, and therefore, even when the application signal and the reflected signal overlap due to the proximity of the fault location to the application location, the fault type and the fault location of the cable to be inspected may be accurately detected, and even when the intensity of the reflected signal is weak due to remoteness of the fault location from the application location or due to a minute fault level, accuracy and reliability of the fault type determination and the fault location detection for the cable to be inspected may be improved.

This paper presents few case studies of state diagnosis of XLPE cables using very low frequency techniques. The power cables of 22.9kV which have installation fault were assessed using VLF technique in addition to other techniques like insulation resistance and DC voltage withstand test. From the experimental results, The dielectric loss(tanδ) values of degradation of the cable(joint, knife, needle) at U0 were 5.839, 5.526 and 6.251, respectively and all values were "further study advised". VLF PD measurement was also found defective portion. These method was effective in defect to fault in the degradation of the cable. However, the breakdown did not occur in the degradation of the cable because of properties of XLPE insulation. Few case studies of using VLF tanδ diagnosis for fault are measured and analyzed. The tanδ values at U0 were "further study advised" or "action required". © The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers.

In this paper, we investigated the fusing current of carbon fiber and thermal properties of carbon fiber and metal shielded cable due to over-current. The fusing current value for the metal-coated carbon fiber was 5.3A in 3K, 7.4K and 13.05A in 12K. And if it exceeds 50% of the fusing current was broken with a rapid voltage rise. In the case of carbon fiber shielded cable, the temperature of the PVC sheath increased somewhat in the allowable current range. However, the temperature of PVC sheath rapidly increased to 128.1°C in the 2 time allowable current range. This value is 10°C higher than the temperature of PVC sheath on the metal screen cable, because the resistance of the carbon fiber is high and heat transfer rate is slow. © The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers.

The introduction of smart grid, which is an innovative application of digital processing and communications to the power grid, might lead to more and more cyber threats originated from IT systems. In other words, The Energy Management System (EMS) and other communication networks interact with the power system on a real time basis, so it is important to understand the interaction between two layers to protect the power system from potential cyber threats. This paper aims to identify and clarify the cyber security risks and their interaction with the power system in Smart Grid. In this study, the optimal power flow (OPF) and Power Flow Tracing are used to assess the interaction between the EMS and the power system. Through OPF and Power Flow Tracing based analysis, the physical and economic impacts from potential cyber threats are assessed, and thereby the quantitative risks are measured in a monetary unit. © The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers.

A high-temperature superconducting (HTS) DC cable system has attracted a great deal of interest from the view point of low loss, dense structure and large capacity compared to HTS AC cable system. It has a HTS cable and a termination. A HTS DC cable system consists of a conductor, cooling system and electrical insulation. To realize the HTS DC cable system, it is important to study not only high current capacity and low loss of conductor but also optimum electrical insulation at cryogenic temperature. The electrical insulation technology of HTS DC cable and termination must be solved for the long life, reliability and compact of cable.In this paper, we will discuss mainly on the electrical insulation characteristics and the insulation design of 220 kV class HTS DC cable. Voltage-time (V-t) characteristics of laminated polypropylene paper (PPLP) in LN 2 were studied. Furthermore, the surface flashover characteristics of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) for termination insulators under DC and lightning impulse voltage were studied. © 2011 IEEE.

Owing to the consistent increase in energy efficiency issues, studies for improving the charging efficiency and energy density of batteries have been receiving attention in the electric vehicle transportation sector. This paper deals with an online electric vehicle (OLEV) system which utilizes the dc power system for reducing loss as well as reducing the size of the required battery capacity. Intensive research on grid integration with OLEV has not been performed until recently and it is necessary to calculate the power flow analysis considering the unique characteristics of OLEV for the commercialization of this new transport system (for the application of this new system in the transport sector). In this paper, the dc OLEV power system is being investigated for reducing line losses and peak power thereby reducing the electric cost levied on the substation. Verification processes are performed through simulation for various scenarios to examine the effectiveness of the proposed system in terms of power consumption, battery state of charge, peak power, and loss reduction. © 1986-2012 IEEE.

Inspections and diagnoses of corona discharges are important in order to prevent electrical faults of external insulation in power systems. This paper studies the measurement of ultraviolet rays (UV) strength of corona discharges on polymer insulators using a UV sensor with an optic lens. The data have been compared with the images of a UV camera. The UV signal by corona discharge was detected from more than 60 kV, which was equivalent to around 37.5% of the breakdown voltage. The UV strength increased with increasing high voltage and the supplying dc voltage. Also, UV image was observed. However, the longer the distance was, the greater the reduction in UV signals would be. The robust, inexpensive sensor can detect corona discharge activity on polymer insulators when the applied voltage exceeds 37.5% of the breakdown voltage. © 2011 IEEE.

This paper studies a measurement of ultra-violet (UV) emission of corona discharges on polymer insulators using an UV rays sensor including an optical lens. In addition, these data have been compared with the images of an UV rays camera. The detection of an UV rays signal begins at 60kV, which is about 37.5% of the breakdown voltage of the polymer insulator and the stronger the high voltage supplied to the polymer insulator was. Also, the corona discharge quantity sharply increased at 60kV when the image of the UV rays was observed. It can be determined that the polymer insulator mounted on a live part must be examined when the discharge risk exceeds approximately 40%. In conclusion, the status of power utilities can be checked using an UV sensor, relevant products to which can be developed at moderate cost. ©2010 IEEE.

Surge protective devices (SPDs) play an important role to protect the valuable electrical and electronic equipment against transients originating from lightning. Class I tested SPDs are needed to divert surge currents due to direct lightning flashes. In order to achieve the effective protection of sensitive electrical and electronic systems, coordinated SPD systems should be designed and installed. This paper presents the experimental results obtained from the actual installation conditions of SPDs with the aims to understand the energy sharing of the cascaded Class I and II SPDs and to propose the effective selection and installation methods of SPDs. The residual voltage of each SPD and energy coordination between the upstream Class I tested SPD and the downstream Class tested II SPD were measured using a 10/350 μs current wave. © 2014 IEEE.
