Economic modelling of transmission investments is an integral part of the transmission investment approval process in New Zealand. It provides insight into how system reliability, operating costs and market dynamics will be affected by new assets. Economic analysis utilizes software tools that range in complexity from simple spreadsheets to highly detailed system dispatch models. As software modelling tools have become more sophisticated there is temptation for model developers to keep increasing model detail but the need for such detail must be weighed against the financial and system impacts of the problem being studied. The challenge facing modellers is to ensure an appropriate level of model detail is used that reflects the complexity and important variables of the investment being studied. This paper investigates some of the challenges associated with economic modelling of transmission investments and illustrates the importance of functionality and flexibility modelling tool design and development.

Earthquake Spectra | Year: 2014

From late-2010 to mid-2011, Christchurch suffered a series of earthquakes and aftershocks that affected the city's power supply. The most relevant of these events occurred on 4 September 2010, 22 February 2011, and 13 June 2011. In all these events transmission level power restoration occurred rapidly- within one day. Except for the second event, similar relatively minor damage led to rapid restoration of distribution-level power outages. However, extensive damage to underground cables during the February 2011 earthquake caused some outages that lasted until early March. This damage seems to be amongst the only extensively-documented such failures to date. Despite recorded strong ground shakings, damage to other power infrastructure facilities was moderate to minor. This satisfactory performance of power infrastructure is attributed to a program implemented during the decade prior to this earthquake sequence to seismically upgrade almost all unreinforced masonry substation buildings and reinforce other infrastructure elements. © 2014, Earthquake Engineering Research Institute.

Condition monitoring plays a vital role in any asset management plan. Dissolved gas analysis is a routine test carried out on power transformers to monitor their condition. Four power transformers selected from a repository of power transformers due to their dissolved gas levels exceeding the normal levels are analyzed using the Key Gas Method, the Roger's Ratio Method and the Duval Triangle Method to diagnose any faults. The results show that for some transformers all three diagnosis methods agree on the type of fault, whilst for others it is not so straightforward in diagnoses. In this study, the condition of each power transformer is predicted using the above methods. © 2012 IEEE.

IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting | Year: 2013

The objective of this research is to demonstrate that combined wind and hydro generation, each dispatchable, can operate as firmed capacity in a market with transmission constraints. The model network consists of other generators and loads at different buses. The wind and hydro generators offer an hourly wind-hydro load schedule (W-H schedule) for supply into an auction based market with other generators offering to meet the system loads in a transmission constrained dispatch. An algorithm is presented that determines the operating strategy 24 hours ahead of real-time operations, with the objective of minimizing the total cost of supply while respecting the given W-H schedule, nodal power balance constraint, generation limits, branch flow and other limits. Discussion is based on New Zealand Electricity Market rules, where generators are self-committed into the market. Three scenarios are studied and the results presented. © 2013 IEEE.

This paper describes a practical technique to quantify transmission asset exposure to unexpected events so that planning engineers can identify and justify cost-effective mitigation measures. The analysis framework uses insurance risk analysis and highlights the need to understand multiple asset outage consequences in the power system. With these inputs annualised outage costs can be estimated and mitigation strategies tested for cost effectiveness. A number of real investment case studies are presented to illustrate the technique. © 2014 IEEE.

An important part of identifying the reliability or remaining life of transmission line towers/foundations is to know their actual capacity. Another aspect that is not yet well defined is tower/foundation interaction under dynamic wind gusts or ultimate design loads. A required realignment of a double circuit 110kV line gave us a unique opportunity to do some full scale testing on two consecutive suspension towers that had been made redundant. The two towers were from the same family of towers and line that was being considered for tower/foundation strengthening due to capacity concerns from recent re-conductoring and minor uprating. At one site (T27) the tower was dismantled leaving the steel grillage foundations intact and available for individual "static" uplift testing. The foundations were in similar soil conditions to the other tower, and representative of the rest of the line. The standalone foundation tests were undertaken using a dedicated foundation test beam. The foundations were tested consistently to the IEC standard for a "static" test complete with applied load and deflection measurements of the stub and sub-surface layers. At the other site (T26), the tower was located on a ridge with plenty of room for setting up the test arrangement and adjacent to its replacement tower which due to supply issues was of 220kV design and much larger. The tower was instrumented with strain gauges and load cells, and loaded through a cable arrangement back to a pair of dozers. Transverse and vertical loads were applied to the tower through a single sloping cable at each crossarm level. The heart of the test was the ability to apply a slow effectively "static" load for comparison with a static tower analysis and standalone foundation testing, but also to simulate a relatively fast and short duration dynamic load with failure at 120% of the expected static failure load.
