A low-voltage unipolar-type DC microgrid composed of PVA(PhotoVoltaic Array), FC(Fuel Cell) and SC(Super-Capacitor) is studied and its operational control strategy considering the characteristics of DGs is researched. The open-circuit-voltage proportional-coefficient method is used to track the maximum power of PVA. The slope limiter is employed to limit the rate of FC power change for preventing the fuel starvation and improving its performance and lifetime. The sliding mode control is applied to SC for its rapid charging and discharging to stabilize the DC bus voltage. A system model is established with MATLAB/Simulink and the simulative results show that, the proposed control strategy increases the energy utilization efficiency and improves the power quality of system.

With the development of smart grid technology, it is now more convenient for the implementation of demand-side response and the integration of all kinds of distributed energy resources. This paper first analyses the respective functions and coordination relationships of distributed generation, load and energy storage in the microgrid optimal operation, and regards them as the generalized demand side resources, then a more flexible optimization framework based on the concept of "source-load-storage" is built up. In order to reduce the dimensions of the optimal operation problem, this paper then puts forward a solving model which combines the heuristic rules and particle swarm algorithm. The heuristic rules are used to generate the optimal strategies for storages and loads, while the multiple-objective PSO is employed to optimize the power resources. To achieve both stability and accuracy in the optimal control, the receding horizon optimization technology is adopted. Finally, the simulation cases with different combinations of various demand side resources taken into account are presented, showing the effectiveness of the method proposed. © 2013 State Grid Electric Power Research Institute Press.

Two-level voltage source converter (2Level-VSC) with IGBTs directly in series and modular multi-level converter (MMC) are two kinds of the most mainstream converters used in flexible HVDC. Their external features are similar; however, their characteristics of loss are different, which affects their economy and applicable workplace. Based on the device parameters provided by the manufacturer, a general loss calculation model is proposed which is applicable to calculating the losses of both the converters. Through analyzing the working status of devices of the two kinds of converters, loss calculation methods of the two are analyzed in detail. Finally, loss characteristics of 2Level-VSC and MMC are analyzed quantitatively through examples. The results show that loss characteristics of the two kinds of converters are different, and the efficiency of MMC is higher than that of the 2Level-VSC with IGBTs directly in series under different conditions.

The islanding operation of distribution generation possibly does harm to the power system, customers and maintenance staffs. Therefore, the operating state of the distributed generation should be monitored appropriately. If the DG is islanded, the islanding must be detected quickly and the DG should be isolated from the main grid. Based on the conventional passive islanding detection methods, of which the typical ones are ROCOF and VS, a novel islanding detection method is proposed based on the advantages of ROCOF and VS and by means of appropriate coordination and setting of the existing ROCOF and VS methods. By virtue of PSCAD/EMTDC, a power system model including DG and integrating into the main grid is set up. A variety of power shortage conditions are simulated and the proposed scheme is verified. Test results demonstrate that this scheme is valid to detect the islanding. Furthermore, the correctness and reliability of the proposed method in various extreme condition are analyzed.

This paper presents an efficient 3D face recognition method to handle facial expression and hair occlusion. The proposed method uses facial curves to form a rejection classifier and produce a facial deformation mapping and then adaptively selects regions for matching. When a new 3D face with an arbitrary pose and expression is queried, the pose is normalized based on the automatically detected nose tip and the principal component analysis (PCA) follows. Then, the facial curve in the nose region is extracted and used to form the rejection classifier which quickly eliminates dissimilar faces in the gallery for efficient recognition. Next, six facial regions which cover the face are segmented and curves in these regions are used to map facial deformation. Regions used for matching are automatically selected based on the deformation mapping. In the end, results of all the matching engines are fused by weighted sum rule. The approach is applied on the FRGC v2.0 dataset and a verification rate of 96.0% for ROC III is achieved as a false acceptance rate (FAR) of 0.1%. In the identification scenario, a rank-one accuracy of 97.8% is achieved. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

An optimal coordinate operation control method for large-scale wind-photovoltaic (PV)-battery storage power generation units (WPB-PGUs) connected to a power grid with rated power output was proposed to address the challenges of poor stability, lack of decision-making, and low economic benefits. The "rainflow" calculation method was adopted to establish the battery cycle life model and to calculate quantitatively the life expectancy loss in the operation process. To minimize unit cost of power generation, this work optimized the output period of the equipment and strategy of battery charging and discharging with consideration of working conditions, generation equipment characteristics, and load demand by using the enhanced gravitational search algorithm (EGSA). A case study was conducted on the basis of data obtained using WPB-PGU in Zhangbei, China. Results showed that the proposed method could effectively minimize the unit cost of a WPB-PGU under different scenarios and diverse meteorological conditions. The proposed algorithm has high calculation accuracy and fast convergence speed. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
