A new strategy for management and reconfiguration of self-contained power systems
MetadataShow full item record
Power systems on naval vessels and airplanes are good examples of self-contained power systems. These types of systems are useful for testing reconfiguration, particularly ones that might be implemented continuously, not just under compromised conditions. Determining the best operating condition in real time is challenging, since it discourages stochastic approaches. A fixed grid representation of the dynamic loads is recommended, employing a phasor algorithm to update the load impedances. A new subspace approach for solving the reconfiguration is presented and compared to branch and bound algorithms. Reconfiguration is studied for a test system with 16 million switch options. Also discussed is how this information can be used in the design of the power grid a priori.
