Research paper Power System Operation
Operation Planning of Wind Farms with Pumped Storage Plants Based on Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Modeling of Uncertainties

H. Siahkali

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 182-194


  The operation planning problem encounters several uncertainties in terms of the power system’s parameters such as load, operating reserve and wind power generation. The modeling of those uncertainties is an important issue in power system operation. The system operators can implement different ...  Read More

Stochastic Short-Term Hydro-Thermal Scheduling Based on Mixed Integer Programming with Volatile Wind Power Generation

M. R. Behnamfar; H. Barati; M. Karami

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 195-208


  This study addresses a stochastic structure for generation companies (GenCoʼs) that participate in hydro-thermal self-scheduling with a wind power plant on short-term scheduling for simultaneous reserve energy and energy market. In stochastic scheduling of HTSS with a wind power plant, in addition to ...  Read More

Research paper Power System Stability
A Fast Voltage Collapse Detection and Prevention Based on Wide Area Monitoring and Control

M. Mohammadniaei; F. Namdari; M.R. Shahkarami

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 209-219


  Voltage stability is one of the most important factors in maintaining reliable operation of power systems. When a disturbance occurs in the power system, it usually causes instabilities and sometimes leads to voltage collapse (VC). To avoid such problems, a novel approach called Vector Analysis (VA) ...  Read More

Efficiency Improvement of the Flyback Converter Based on High Frequency Transformer Winding Rearrangement

A. Zakipour; K. Abbaszadeh; S. Shokri; M. Salimi

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 220-233


  In this paper, a novel method for loss reduction and efficiency optimization of the high frequency flyback transformers is proposed based on rearrangement of the windings. According to detailed analysis of the high frequency flyback transformer using FEM technique, a novel and simple approach for its ...  Read More

Research paper Insulation & High Voltage
Estimation of New Weighted Controlled Switching Overvoltage by RBFN Model

M. Hasanpour; M. Ghanbari; V. Parvin-Darabad

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 234-244


  Mitigating switching overvoltages (SOVs) and conducting well-suited insulation coordination for handling stresses are very important in UHV transmission Lines. The best strategy in the absence of arresters is controlled switching (CS). Although elaborate works on electromagnetic transients are considered ...  Read More

Research paper Renewable Energy
A Fast and Accurate Global Maximum Power Point Tracking Method for Solar Strings under Partial Shading Conditions

S.M. Hashemzadeh; M. Hejri

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 245-256


  This paper presents a model-based approach for the global maximum power point (GMPP) tracking of solar strings under partial shading conditions. In the proposed method, the GMPP voltage is estimated without any need to solve numerically the implicit and nonlinear equations of the photovoltaic (PV) string ...  Read More

Design of Reliability Insurance Scheme Based on Utility Function for Improvement of Distribution Grid Reliability

A. Niromandfam; A. Sadeghi Yazdankhah; R. Kazemzadeh

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 257-272


  The regulatory schemes currently used for reliability improvement have weaknesses in the provision of quality services based on the customers’ perspective. These schemes consider the average of the service as a criterion to incentivize or penalize the distribution system operators (DSOs). On the ...  Read More

Research paper Micro Grid
Fuel Consumption Reduction and Energy Management in Stand-Alone Hybrid Microgrid under Load Uncertainty and Demand Response by Linear Programming

A.M. Dejamkhooy; M. Hamedi; H. Shayeghi; S.J. SeyedShenava

Volume 8, Issue 3 , December 2020, Pages 273-281


  A stand-alone microgrid usually contains a set of distributed generation resources, energy storage system and loads that can be used to supply electricity of remote areas. These areas are small in terms of population and industry. Connection of these areas to the national distribution network due to ...  Read More
