The University of Manchester; Master’s Thesis, University of Pittsburgh. However, fault locators may cause further damage to the line and lack the ability to locate temporary faults. Also, fault locators lack the ability to locate faults in a hybrid DC line system, where the transmission medium consists of segments of both underground cables and overhead lines, when using only terminal measurements. In this thesis these techniques are compared in terms of accuracy and simulation speed and a set of modelling recommendations are presented. Non-digital content not deposited electronically:. This thesis studies factors which affect the reliability of VSC-HVDC transmission schemes, in respect to availability, protection, and system modelling.

Apply with your CV, academic transcripts and a cover letter in English Welcome to apply! Your shortlist was successfully sent. Based on this high fidelity four-terminal system model, a thorough analysis is conducted for the two-level converter and the MMC systems under different fault scenarios. Doctoral level ETD – final. After reviewing different fault detection methodologies, it is found that wavelet transforms presently might be the best option for DC protection. Electrical energy transmission technologies are evolving as the need for sustainable energy resources continues to increase.

Factors Affecting the Reliability of VSC-HVDC for the Connection of Offshore Windfarms
Bibliographic metadata Type of resource:. Such rapid advancements in HVDC technology constantly set new targets for research and development – both in industry and in academia.
Based on this high fidelity four-terminal system model, a thorough analysis is conducted for the two-level converter and the MMC systems under different fault scenarios. The library chat service will be hvxc from 11am-3pm Monday to Friday excluding Bank Holidays. After reviewing different fault detection methodologies, it is found that wavelet transforms presently might be the best option for DC protection.
The connection of offshore windfarms to a MT HVDC system offers other potential benefits, in comparison to an equivalent radial system, including a reduction in the volume of assets and enhanced operational flexibility.
The reliability of the offshore windfarms and their electrical transmission systems hvfc critical for their feasibility. However, such DC networks are vulnerable to any DC side short-circuit fault. This thesis conducts some of the underpinning research for such DC protection studies. Bibliographic metadata Type of resource:.
Doctoral level ETD – final. HVDC transmission systems are becoming more prominent in power theis design and operation, due to their superior performance in transmitting large amounts hdc power over long distances, which is needed in applications such as offshore wind farm developments.
Research and Development Publication ID: Each of them will be assigned to one of the topics mentioned above which they will carry out individually with the support of the supervisor from our side.
Thesis Work on HVDC System Developments
Positions are filled continuously. After the fault analysis, a study is conducted to search for any other DC protection equipment which could help the DC breaker isolate a DC fault. Please note that your shortlist is saved locally and will be available only on the same device. A HVDC circuit breaker topology, which addresses some of the limitations of the existing designs, was developed in this thesis, for which a UK patent application was filed.
However, fault locators may cause further damage to the line and lack the ability to locate temporary faults. Apart from using a DC circuit breaker to isolate a DC fault, there may be other devices which could potentially be used for DC protection.
