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.

When the corona occurs due to partial discharge (PD) of a power facility, various signals such as ultraviolet (UV) rays, nitric oxide (NO), ozone (O3) and electron impact are detected. In particular, an UV camera and the ease of inspecting and diagnosing their safety features have attracted a great deal of interest. One of the most important and difficult problems is the basic research of the filter design, materials and corona discharge. In this paper, the electric characteristics and UV image of corona discharge were investigated using a prototype Korean UV camera.

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.

This paper proposes a reduced-scale simulator that can replace numerical analytic methods for the estimation of potential distribution caused by ground faults in various grounding systems. The simulator consists of a hemispherical electrolytic tank, a three-dimensional potential probe, a grounding electrode, and a data acquisition module. The potential distribution is measured using a potentiometer with a position-tracing function when a test current flows to the grounding electrode. Using the simulator, we could clearly analyze the potential distribution for a reduced- scale model by one-eightieth of the buried depth and length of the grounding rod and grounding grid. Once both the shape of the grounding electrode and the fault current are known, the actual potential distribution can be estimated.

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.

Portable ultrasonic detectors are useful for detection of electrical discharge phenomena like as corona occurring in an electric system. But the general potable ultrasonic detectors have drawbacks that the results of judgment about whether there is discharge are under the influence subjective reaction of users and it is difficult to determine the type of problem by listening to sound properties and estimate results. So a new analysis method distinguishing ultrasonic characteristics is required. This paper presented ultrasonic wave analysis case study to visualize ultrasonic sound measured by ultrasonic detector. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Recently, various measures have been discussed for overcoming depletion of fossil fuels and environmental pollution. One of the measures is electric vehicles. But electric vehicles has some limitations from high cost of battery and low efficiency, so operation distance of electric cars is limited. Also there are difficulties that charging lines should be connected by an electric car whenever it charges. Thus, many studies have been conducted to overcome the limitation using conventional batteries of electric vehicles. As a result, the OLEV(On-Line Electric Vehicle) was developed. But the OLEV system is some limitations. The OLEV system causes power quality problems when it charges. Power quality problem cannot be ignored because OLEV systems are closely connected by distribution grids. In this paper, the OLEV system is designed by using PSCAD/EMTDC, and the power quality is measured and evaluated. Power quality is divided by two cases; harmonics and high-frequency. Harmonics were evaluated according to IEEE Std. 519-1992. But the evaluation of High-frequency could not take it because there was no standard. For this reason, the data measured by OLEV system was compared with the EN50065 regulation.

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.
