Importance of protection IEDs in IEC 61850-based substations has increased by enhancing performance of IEDs but local backup scheme in the substation is not considered important. In the existing local backup method, two protection IEDs are installed for one protection target. This method is useful for local backup of the IEDs. However, local backup at simultaneous fault of the protection IEDs is not performed in conventional substation because it has limitations on operational environment. However, IEC 61850-based substation improves operational environment with high speed communication network and high performance IEDs; and the simultaneous fault problem can be resolved by developing new devices and schemes. Therefore, this paper proposes a new local backup scheme for simultaneous faults of protection IEDs in an IEC 61850-based substation. The proposed backup scheme is configured as self-supervision-based monitoring, new improved local backup IED, and local backup scheme; and the proposed scheme is implemented and tested using IEC 61850 SISCO library on a laboratory test bed. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

Nanyang Technological University is building Southeast Asia's first offshore system that will integrate multiple renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, tidal, diesel, and power-to-gas technologies Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is building an offshore system that will integrate multiple renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, tidal, diesel, and power-to-gas technologies. The region's first large-scale offshore power grid system, it will have four hybrid microgrids, occupying over 64,000 sq metres of land or roughly about eight soccer fields. The system will be built at Semakau Landfill which is managed by the National Environment Agency (NEA). It will have over 3,000 sq. metres of photovoltaic (PV) panels, including energy storage systems that are already in operation. The deployment of the first hybrid microgrid was announced today by Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources at the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES) held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands. "I am happy to announce that the first microgrid has just been deployed and it will enable the National Environment Agency (NEA) to power its infrastructure on Semakau Landfill using electricity generated through zero-carbon means. The use of energy storage and microgrid control technologies will allow the landfill to reduce its reliance on diesel-based power and transition towards renewable energy. I am also pleased to share that REIDS will deploy 3 further microgrids on Semakau Landfill to test the interoperability of various microgrid solutions." Once all four hybrid microgrids are fully built, they are expected to produce stable and consistent power in the megawatt (MW) range, suitable for small islands, isolated villages, and emergency power supplies. It will also produce energy amounting to the equivalent of the average energy consumption of 250 4-room HDB flats for a year. Fish hatcheries and nurseries located at Semakau Landfill will be among the first to be powered. Built under the Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator-Singapore (REIDS) initiative led by NTU, the hybrid power grid system will test the integration of solar, wind, tidal-current, diesel, energy storage and power-to-gas technologies and ensure these energy sources operate well together. NTU Chief of Staff and Vice-President (Research) Prof Lam Khin Yong said "The deployment of this first hybrid microgrid is a big leap towards low-carbon electricity production for the nation and the region. As a global leader in sustainability research, NTU is proud to champion this ground-breaking initiative and lead Singapore's charge in developing practical renewable energy solutions." Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and NEA, NTU's REIDS initiative will also facilitate the development and commercialisation of microgrid technologies suited for a tropical island. Mr Goh Chee Kiong, Executive Director of Cleantech at EDB said, "Singapore has identified microgrids as a key growth area for the clean energy industry. REIDS is the largest microgrid R&D platform in Southeast Asia and therefore is instrumental to Singapore's ambition to achieve a global leadership position in microgrids and serve the regional markets. Since its launch in 2014, the REIDS platform has been successful in attracting leading solution providers and regional adopters to develop, demonstrate and export microgrid solutions from Singapore." Mr Ronnie Tay, Chief Executive Officer of NEA, said, "The REIDS project will lead to innovative sustainable energy solutions that will help to address climate change. The National Environment Agency (NEA) is very pleased to support this landmark effort to explore the integration of renewable energy into micro-grid solutions." Managed by NTU's Energy Research Institute (ERI@N), the REIDS initiative is expected to attract $20 million worth of projects over the next five years, in addition to the initial $10 million investment in infrastructure at the landfill. REIDS has attracted investments from top energy and microgrid companies which aim to co-develop such solutions to serve the growing market in Southeast Asia. The four microgrid systems will be developed by ENGIE, GE Grid Solutions, LS Industrial Solutions (LSIS) and Schneider Electric. Other partners include Accenture, Class NK, DLRE, Renewable Energy Corporation (REC), Trina Solar. LSIS and Sony were also announced as partners today at ACES 2016. The REIDS platform will pave the way for similar technologies to be developed and exported to serve the numerous remote communities in Southeast Asia and beyond. It has already attracted the interest of regional adopters such as island communities and utilities. For instance, Bawah Island, an Indonesian island in the South China Sea, and Meralco, the largest electric distribution company in the Philippines, will partner REIDS to develop offshore microgrid projects. See Annex A for more info on the hybrid microgrids project and Annex B for a list of companies involved in NTU's REIDS initiative. A research-intensive public university, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has 33,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students in the colleges of Engineering, Business, Science, Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences, and its Interdisciplinary Graduate School. It has a new medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, set up jointly with Imperial College London. NTU is also home to world-class autonomous institutes - the National Institute of Education, S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Earth Observatory of Singapore, and Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering - and various leading research centres such as the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N) and the Institute on Asian Consumer Insight (ACI). Ranked 13th in the world, NTU has also been ranked the world's top young university for the last two years running. The University's main campus has been named one of the Top 15 Most Beautiful in the World. NTU also has a campus in Novena, Singapore's medical district. The hybrid microgrids at Semakau Landfill will be implemented in two phases. The first phase, which has been completed, involved installing a microgrid facility with over 3,000 metre square of photovoltaic (PV) panels as well as a large-scale energy storage system. The lithium-ion energy storage system (ESS) can store up to 200 kilowatt hour (kWh), similar to the monthly energy consumption of a two-room HDB unit, and will serve as a medium term energy storage. Currently in the second phase, a 64,400 metre square plot (about 8 soccer fields) was cleared to make way for three separate microgrids which can either be operated separately or be integrated and function as a single power facility. These separate microgrids will each manage multiple renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, diesel generators and energy storage systems, including supercapacitors. Supercapacitors differ from normal lithium-ion energy storage as they are able to both quickly store and discharge a large amount of electricity. However, they are unable to hold the electricity over a long period of time, serving as short term energy storage. Excess energy generated from the microgrid can be used to generate hydrogen that can be stored long-term to be subsequently used in fuel cells which convert hydrogen into electricity, generating far less emissions as compared with oil and gas. 1.

This paper presents a novel flux-weakening strategy for an induction machine driven by an electrolytic-capacitor-less inverter. In the electrolytic-capacitor-less inverter, the dc-link voltage is fluctuating at six times the frequency of the input three-phase source due to its small dc-link capacitance. Hence, the decoupling of the fluctuation and maximum utilization of the dc-link voltage is a major issue in the electrolytic-capacitor-less inverter. In this paper, the cost function is set to increase the voltage utilization of the inverter for the flux-weakening operation of an induction machine. With the proposed flux-weakening strategy, the operating speed of the induction machine is extended above the base speed without any stability problems. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed strategy. © 2011 IEEE.

This paper proposes a new dead time compensation method of independent six-phase permanent magnet synchronous motors (IS-PMSM). The current of the independent phase machines contains odd-numbered harmonics because of the dead time and the nonlinear characteristics of the switching devices. By using the d-q-n three-dimensional vector analysis, these harmonics can be extracted at the n-axis current. Thus, the current distortion can be compensated by controlling the n-axis current of the IS-PMSM to zero. The proposed method is simple and can be easily implemented without additional hardware setup. The validity of the proposed compensation method is verified with simulations and several experiments.

This paper proposes a parameter identification method of induction motors (IMs) at a standstill using integral calculations. The rotor time constant and magnetizing inductance are identified. During identification process, the induction motor to be tested is consistently excited according to a pre-determined current reference. Using the pre-determined current, the tested motor emulates the rated rotor flux and the rated slip condition even at a standstill. Therefore, the identification result is quite accurate. And, this method is based on integral calculation so that the results are robust to measurement noise. The repeatability of the identification result is remarkable. Due to the simplicity of the proposed technique, this method can be easily applied to the commercial inverter products. Experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2015 IEEE.

Electric machine drive systems have a protection mechanism for momentary power interruption. Generally, when the momentary power interruption is occurred, outputs of a drive system are stopped for the protection. For stable continuous operation, it is sometimes required the restarting strategy which is called as a flying start when the input power is recovered and the rotor is still rotating freely due to the large inertia of high power electric machine. The paper suggests the flying start strategy at momentary power loss. The proposed strategy is composed of the phase-locked loop(PLL) and Double Second-Order Generalized Integrator(DSOGI), based on the measured input voltages at electric machine side and the voltage compensation. The magnitude, frequency and phase angle of the residual voltages are estimated with PLL and DSOGI and the induced initial voltage is compensated considering the operating conditions. With the proposed strategy, the target drive system can be restored to the operation point of a prior failure. The proposed method is validated by the experiment with a miniature of MV drives. © 2015 Korean Institute of Power Electronics.
