Abstract:The medium- and low-voltage DC power distribution system consists of medium-voltage DC bus, low-voltage DC bus, DC transformer and so on, with the characteristics of multiple voltage levels, DC buses and converters. The operation modes and coordination control strategies of the system are more complicated. A medium- and low-voltage DC power distribution system is taken as the research object, and a decentralized unified control strategy based on the DC bus voltage signal is proposed. The photovoltaic power generation unit, energy storage unit and fuel cell unit on the DC bus adopt decentralized control strategies to adjust their working modes according to the DC bus voltage. The DC transformer utilizes a unified control strategy which integrates the functions of power control and the medium- and low-voltage DC bus voltage regulation. The DC transformer can automatically adjust the magnitude and direction of the transmission power based on normalized values of medium-voltage and low-voltage DC bus voltage deviations, and realize the global power sharing of the system. Finally, the simulation model of medium- and low-voltage DC power distribution system is built in MATLAB/Simulink, and simulation analysis of various operating states and scenarios is carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.

Abstract:The probability of single-pole grounding faults on lines of DC distribution network is high. It is difficult to identify the fault due to the large variation range of the transition resistance. With regard to the protection against single-pole grounding faults of medium-voltage DC lines in ring-shaped DC distribution networks, this paper analyzes the zero-mode network of the system after single-pole grounding fault. Based on the zero-mode network, the mathematical models of internal-fault and external-fault are established. Then the Hausdorff distance algorithm is employed to compare the similarity between the sampled zero-mode differential current and the calculated value obtained by the internal-fault and external-fault models, which achieves rapid identification and isolation of the fault. It is simple to set the relay threshold as well. Finally, the feasibility of the protection scheme is verified via a simulation model in PSCAD/EMTDC. The results show that the proposed scheme has high fault identification accuracy and tolerance to transition resistance.

Abstract:To comprehensively improve the overall performance of the dual active bridge(DAB)converter, this paper focuses on the necessity of ensuring zero voltage switching(ZVS)operation for all switches while minimizing current stress based on dual phase shift. Firstly, a linearized large signal model with transmitted power as input is established and the precise control of output voltage is realized. Then, the characteristics of soft switching and current stress in four power modes are analyzed based on the proposed model by directly regulating the transmitted power. Two current stress optimization methods with full ZVS operation and natural soft switching operation are implemented, respectively. Moreover, the improvement of efficiency using two optimization methods is analyzed and compared. The results show that ensuring all switches to realize ZVS greatly will increase the current stress and decrease the efficiency of DAB converter, when switches with similar turn-on loss and turn-off loss are adopted. Both theoretical analysis and experimental results show that the current stress optimization algorithm with natural soft switching can significantly minimize the current stress, reduce the loss, and improve the performance of the converter.

Abstract:In order to realize the optimal allocation of unbalanced power and the stable control of DC voltage after disturbance, this paper proposes a self-organizing droop characteristic optimization method considering power margin and additional constant DC voltage control based on the conventional voltage and power droop control of multi-terminal flexible DC distribution network. The proposed method breaks the inherent constraint that the unbalanced power of converter station is proportionally distributed according to its capacity in the conventional droop control, which realizes the rational transfer of unbalanced power and reduces the overload risk of smaller-capacity converter stations. By introducing the power deviation factor, the “dead zone” is appropriately set on the droop characteristic curve to relax the operation range of the converter station to a certain extent. By analogy to the concept of elasticity mechanics, this paper designs a self-organizing updating rule of operation state of the converter station based on the cellular automaton. The corresponding MATLAB simulation model of five-terminal DC distribution network is established, and the proposed model is compared with the electromagnetic transient model with traditional droop control. Finally, the simulation results verify the effectiveness and control effects of the proposed control method.

Abstract:DC distribution mode has the advantages of high power supply capacity, low loss and flexible control. With the continuous maturity of power electronic technology, AC/DC hybrid distribution network gradually becomes a new research hotspot and development trend. An economic evaluation model for DC transformation of urban distribution network considering high-density load and distributed generator(DG)supply is proposed. The calculation model of minimum installation capacity and its optimal control strategy are used to optimize investment cost and operation cost. In the model, the impairment income caused by the change of DG output curtailment, load shedding and operation cost is considered. In multiple scenarios, the technique of DC transformation is compared with other transformation methods. The influence of DG penetration and DC load ratio on investment economy of DC transformation is also analyzed. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed economic evaluation method. It also shows that the proposed DC transformation scheme has technical and economic feasibility when the power supply capacity and DG consumption capacity of network are highly required.
