Title: Efficient Eigen-analysis of Grid-connected MMC Characterized by Linear Time-Periodicity
Abstract: The linear time-periodic (LTP) theory is essential to the stability assessment of the grid-connected modular multilevel converter (MMC) system with multiple harmonic components in steady state. Based on the Floquet theory, this paper presents a semi-analytical expression for the system state transition matrix over a period (that is, the monodromy matrix) of LTP system based on the Chebyshev collocation method. Specifically, an explicit expression for the system state after a period is derived in terms of the initial condition, whose coefficient matrix is the approximated monodromy matrix. Its eigenvalues, i.e., Floquet characteristic multipliers, have high accuracy. Compared with the commonly-used time-domain integration method, the presented method obtains greater efficiency by avoiding numerically integrating the studied system itself.

Title: Utilizing Demand-side Generalized Energy Storage to Decarbonize Future Smart Cities
Our modern urban power system is experiencing the Third Energy Revolution that features the integration of high penetration of renewables, e.g., wind and solar. However, renewable generation is known to be intermittent and stochastic which cannot match the electricity demand well. This “mismatch” may significantly deteriorate the security operation of power systems. Widely installing energy storage systems is a possible solution; but is extremely expensive. This talk discusses how existing & cheap demand-side resources can be utilized as generalized storage systems to balance the electricity supply and demand, which will further promote the integration of renewables and decarbonize our future smart cities.

Title: Virtual Collection Technology for Distributed PV Data Empowered by Artificial Intelligence
Abstract: In recent years, with the rapid development of distributed photovoltaic systems (DPVS), the shortage of data monitoring devices and the difficulty of comprehensive coverage of measurement equipment has become more significant, bringing great challenges to the efficient management and maintenance of DPVS. For this reason, it is crucial and beneficial to develop a cost-effective and computationally efficient data collection method for large-scale DPVS clusters with relatively small numbers of sensing devices deployed at strategic locations. Virtual collection is a new DPVS data collection scheme we propose, whose core idea is to use the power data of selected reference power stations (RPSs) in the region as input to infer the power data of other stations through artificial intelligence algorithms. If deployed at strategic locations with proper redundancy, the reduced sensing network can still provide low-cost yet highly sufficiently accurate measurements of the DPVS networks for various power operations.

Title: A Physics-informed Deep k-medoid Scenario Clustering Method for Transmission Network Expansion Planning
Abstract: Transmission network expansion planning (TNEP) is driven to consider far more scenarios than ever as the diversity of injections into power systems increases significantly with the ever-increasing penetration of renewable energy. By selecting a representative scenario subset, scenario clustering is more and more important to realize the computational feasibility of TNEP, which aims at ensuring the TNEPs over the full scenario set and over the subset have the same line addition strategies. In this study, we focus on k-medoid scenario clustering, which quantifies dissimilarities between scenarios by Euclidean distance in a certain clustering space. However, because of the obscure relationship between injections and the line addition strategies, how to define the clustering space and whether Euclidean distance is suitable to measure the dissimilarity are still left open. Herein, we formally give sufficient conditions (SCs) for the clustering aim accomplishment. Then, using multi-parametric mix-integer linear programming (mp-MILP), we disclose the non-linear relationship between injections and the line addition strategies and show the input space, where the injection data lies, is not qualified for the clustering space. Because of the difficulty of a pure physics-based method to define a suitable clustering space, we establish a deep k-medoid clustering network (DKCN) and transform the SCs into a physics-informed loss function (PLF). Driven by the PLF, a clustering space is found by the DKCN, which not only satisfies the SCs but also ensures Euclidean distance is suitable. Finally, an analytical condition is provided which guarantees the clustering aim can be achieved if k-medoid scenario clustering is taken place in the clustering space found by the DKCN.

Title: The Application of Traveling Wave Wideband Feature: Identification of Fault Induced Traveling Wave in Complex Multi-section Grid
Abstract: As the speedy expansion of power gird, the traveling wave fault locator in substation may not always connect to newly added transmission lines in time, which reduces the effectiveness of fault locator. In this research project, an adjacent fault-free line based fault location scheme for newly additional line is proposed. Since the traveling wave from adjacent fault-free line results in severe difficulty for identification of traveling waves from faulty line, the time-frequency matrix is performed to screen traveling waves. Firstly, in order to remove the influence of waves from remote terminals of adjacent fault-free line, the current refraction coefficient is theoretically analyzed. Due to the negative refraction coefficient, traveling waves from remote terminals of adjacent fault-free line can be reduced by the proposed composite traveling wave. Secondly, the time-frequency matrices of composite traveling wave and original traveling wave is obtained by S-transform. Then, these matrices are applied to form ratio matrix which thoroughly eliminated waves from remote terminals of fault-free lines. Moreover, the robustness of the proposed fault location scheme is thoroughly validated by the simulation of PSCAD/EMTDC. Finally, the proposed fault location method has the great accuracy in simulation tests and field data test.

Title: Passivity-based Sliding-mode Theory In MMC-HVDC Transmission Systems
Abstract: The modular multilevel converter (MMC)-based high voltage direct current (MMC-HVDC) transmission system has been widely applied in the large-scale renewable energy transmission and cross-regional transmission due to its inherent advantages. Since the MMC operates with huge number of submodules in each phase, the nonlinear coupling dynamics of different submodules under abnormal working conditions need to be considered seriously. The classic sliding-mode theory based nonlinear controllers and state observers have already applied to the MMC-HVDC transmission system for dynamic performance enhancement and submodule fault detection. The chatting phenomenon and saturation problem of the classic sliding-mode approaches have also brought into the MMC-HVDC transmission system. To address these problems, the feedback passification based energy-shaping methodology is embedded with sliding-mode regime and forming passivity-based sliding-mode theory which can also be employed for designing controller and observer. In this presentation, the passivity-based sliding-mode observer is proposed for submodule fault detection in the single-phase MMC system. To address the submodule capacitor voltage uncertain fluctuation issue, the passivity-based composite sliding-mode control is also proposed in the single-phase MMC system. To suppress the circulating current and regulate the output current during fault-ride-through processes, the passivity-based sliding-mode current control is proposed with synchronous rotating frame in the three-phase MMC system. Current research results of passivity-based sliding-mode theory in MMC-HVDC transmission systems are illustrated.
