This paper presents a novel equivalent, which is suitable for simulation of inertial and primary frequency control effects. In the model reduction procedure, dynamic power injectors are used to replace the external system and to mimic its dynamic behavior. The parameters of the equivalents are tuned with a simple approach presented in this paper. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated on a modified version of the ENTSO-E Dynamic Study Model. The results show that the system frequency response of the unreduced system is retained and a speedup of the simulations of around 4.0 is achieved. [less ▲]

The authors consider a power system composed of several non-synchronous AC areas connected by a multiterminal high-voltage direct current (HVDC) grid. In this context, the authors propose a distributed control scheme that modifies the power injections from the different AC areas into the DC grid so as to make the system collectively react to load imbalances. This collective reaction allows each individual AC area to downscale its primary reserves. The scheme is inspired by algorithms for the consensus problem extensively studied by the control theory community. It modifies the power injections based on frequency deviations of the AC areas so as to make them stay close to each other. A stability analysis of the closed-loop system is reported as well as simulation results on a benchmark power system with five AC areas. These results show that with proper tuning, the control scheme makes the frequency deviations converge rapidly to a common value following a load imbalance in an area. [less ▲]

Comparing time-series is a frequent task in many scientific fields. In power systems, in particular, it may be of interest to compare the outputs of a simplified and a detailed model, or to validate the output of a model with respect to a measured time response. The classical Euclidean distance, involving pairs of points of the two data series aligned in time, is not suited to the practical time evolutions met in power systems, which often involve variable time delays and jumps at discrete times. In this paper, an alternative measure of proximity, stemming from other scientific fields, is proposed for power system applications. It consists in warping the time axis to guarantee the best match between the two time-series, i.e. it maps points on two curves that are not aligned in time so as to minimize the sum of squared differences of their ordinates. Modifications and adaptations of the classical algorithm to better fit power system problems are discussed. The method is illustrated through three representative curve comparison problems. A multi-dimensional extension allowing system-wide measures of similarity is also proposed. [less ▲]
