  • 1. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Viren B. Pandya
  • 2. OUTLINE System security and reliability Illustrative example Classification of power system states and actions to be taken
  • 3. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Power system security is the ability of the system to provide electricity with the appropriate quality under normal and disturbance conditions In security applications, we refer to the disturbances of interest as contingencies In power system operations, security assessment analyzes the vulnerability of the system to a set of postulated contingencies on a real-time or near-real-time basis
  • 4. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Reliability of a power system refers to the probability of its satisfactory operation over the long run. It denotes the ability to supply adequate electric service on a nearly continuous basis, with few interruptions over an extended time period. - IEEE Paper on Terms & Definitions, 2004
  • 5. Reliability has two components Security is the ability of the electric systems to withstand sudden disturbances such as electric short circuits or unanticipated loss of system elements. Security of a power system refers to the degree of risk in its ability to survive imminent disturbances (contingencies) without interruption of customer service. It relates to robustness of the system to imminent disturbances and, hence, depends on the system operating condition as well as the contingent probability of disturbances. (IEEE TermsDefs-04) Adequacy is the ability of the electric systems to supply the aggregate electrical demand and energy requirements of their customers at all times, taking into account scheduled and reasonably expected unscheduled outage of system elements.
  • 6. An operators view of security Security Overload Security Angle/ Voltage Security Transformer Overload Line Overload Static security Low Unstable Voltage Voltage Frequency security Frequency instability Rotor angle instability Dynamic security
  • 7. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Power system security is broken into three major functions being done at control centre: System monitoring Contingency analysis Security constrained optimal power flow System monitoring is done by SCADA and state estimator at central computer Contingency analysis gives results for different known outages to operate system defensively
  • 8. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Several contingencies can be solved by power flow programs and real time data and state estimations Security constrained OPF: Here contingency analysis is combined with OPF which seeks to make changes optimal dispatches of generation so that when security analysis is run, no contingency results in violations.
  • 9. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Operating states of power system: Optimal dispatch: prior to contingency, OPF is run but system may not be secure Post contingency: after contingency, security violation i.e. line or Xmer beyond its flow limit or bus voltage outside limit Secure dispatch: no contingency outages, but corrections to operating parameters to account for security violations
  • 10. POWER SYSTEM SECURITY Conti. Secure post contingency: state of system when contingency is applied to base operating condition with correction
  • 11. Example Line max loadability is 400 MW 250 MW 250 MW 700 MW 500 MW Unit 1 1200 MW Optimal Dispatch Unit 2
  • 12. Example 500 MW 700 MW 500 MW Unit 1 1200 MW Post contingency Unit 2
  • 13. Example 200 MW 200 MW 800 MW 400 MW Unit 1 1200 MW Secure dispatch Unit 2
  • 14. Example 400 MW 800 MW 400 MW Unit 1 1200 MW Unit 2 Secure post contingency state
  • 15. Example Thus by adjusting generation on unit 1 and 2 we have prevented post contingency operating state from getting overloaded. This is called security correction. The programs which can make control adjustments to the base or pre-contingency operation to prevent violations in the postcontingency conditions are called Security Constrained Optimal Power Flows or SCOPF
  • 16. Example These programs can take account of many contingencies and calculate adjustments to generator MW, generator transformer taps, interchange etc. voltages,

  • 18. Power system states and actions Normal (secure) Other actions (e.g. switching) Off-economic dispatch Restorative Extreme emergency. Separation, cascading delivery point interruption, load shedding Alert, Not secure Transmission loading relief procedures Emergency Controlled load curtailment
  • 19. Definition of states and control actions (1) Real and Reactive power balance at each node (Equality Constraints (2) Limitations of physical equipment, such as currents and voltages must not exceed maximum limits(Inequality Constraints) Normal (Secure) State: Here all equality (E) and inequality constraints (I) are satisfied. In this state, generation is adequate to supply the existing load demand and no equipment is overloaded. Also in this state, reserve margins (for transmission as well as generation) are sufficient to provide an adequate level of security with respect to the stresses to which the system may be subjected. The latter maybe treated as the satisfaction of security constraints.
  • 20. Definition of states and control actions Alert (Insecure) State: The difference between this and the previous state is that in this state, the security level is below some threshold of adequacy. This implies that there is a danger of violating some of the inequality (I) constraints when subjected to disturbances (stresses). It can also be said that security constraints are not met. Preventive control enables the transition from an alert state to a secure state. Emergency state: Due to a severe disturbance, the system can enter emergency state. Here (I) constraints are violated. The system, would still be intact, and emergency control action (heroic measures) could be initiated to restore the system to an alert state. If these measures are not taken in time or are ineffective, and if the initiating disturbance or a subsequent one is severe enough to overstress the system, the system will breakdown and reach "In Extremis" state.
  • 21. Definition of states and control actions In Extremis State: Here, both (E) and (I) constraints are violated. The violation of equality constraints implies that parts of the system load are lost. Emergency control action should be directed at avoiding total collapse. Restorative State: This is a transitional state in which (I) constraints are met from emergency control actions taken but the (E) constraints are yet to be satisfied. From this state, the system can transmit to either the alert or the normal state depending on the circumstances.
  • 22. STEADY-STATE SECURITY CONTROL OBJECTIVE To prevent the system state from transitioning from normal secure to emergency For an insecure normal state, two possible responses are modification of the pre-contingency state to eliminate the potential overload, in case the contingency actually occurs a dispatch strategy to manage the emergency once it occurs
