Wind Generator Model

Since DFIG is the prevailing wind generation type nowadays, variable-speed wind generator is modeled as DFIG in this study. WT3 wind model has been developed in PSS®E to simulate the performance of a DFIG-based wind generator with basic active power control [27]. There are four basic components within DFIG model (usually referred to as WT3 […]

Integration of Green Energy into Power Distribution Systems: Study of Impacts and Development of Control Methodology

N. K. Roy and H. R. Pota Abstract Distributed generation (DG) is gaining popularity as it has a positive environmental impact and the capability to reduce high transmission costs and power losses. Although the integration of renewable energy-based DG will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it will rely heavily on new ways of managing system […]

Impact of G2V on Grid

First-generation mass-market PHEVs, such as the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf [10, 11], connect to the grid for only battery charging, which is the most basic configuration. G2V includes conventional and fast battery charging systems, and the latter can stress a grid distribution network because its power is high, as a typical PHEV requires more […]

Power Line Technologies

Power Line Communication (PLC) technologies explore the use of electric power lines as a medium to convey a bidirectional data exchange. In recent years, SG activities, in-building communications and home automation have brought a lot of attention to PLC as an alternative to unwanted or impractical wiring to setup communication networks. Power lines are inherently […]
