An estimation technique i s developed i n t h i s t hesis to i d e n t i f y the dynamic equivalents of external systems. An introduction i s given i n Chapter 1. A Basic multi-machine model f o r dynamic studies i s developed i n Chapter 2. The dynamic equivalent i s estimated from information measured l o c a l l y due to an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance. To reduce computational requirements, a weighted least-squares algorithm with adap-t i v e step s i z e scheme i s used, and a proper model for the external equiva-lent i s chosen i n Chapter 3. Applying the developed techniques, equivalent parameters are estimated f o r three test systems, and the;.results are i n -cluded i n Chapter 4. In Chapter 5, the dynamic equivalents are f i r s t v e r i -f i e d by comparing the dynamic i n t e r a c t i n g e f f e c t of the external system on the study system for both o r i g i n a l and equivalent systems. The equivalents are further v e r i f i e d by three-phase s h o r t - c i r c u i t s on machine buses of the study system. The dynamic responses of the o r i g i n a l systems and the equiva-lent systems are compared. Conclusions are drawn i n Chapter 6 that the dy-namic equivalent derived by the technique developed i n t h i s thesis i s unique that the estimated equivalent i s a good representation of the o r i g i n a l exter n a l system,,and that i t can be developed for on-line i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . i i i TABLE OF CONTENTS Page ABSTRACT i i TABLE OF CONTENTS i i i LIST OF TABLES v i i LIST OF ILLUSTRATIONS v i i i ACKNOWLEDGMENT x NOMENCLATURE x i 1 .

INTRODUCTION Modern e l e c t r i c power systems are characterized by the growing s i z e and complexity that enormous number of generating u n i t s , loads, and trans-mission l i n e s are included i n the system. For example, there are about 300 major e l e c t r i c machines i n the North America Northeastern E l e c t r i c Power System, and also about 300 major e l e c t r i c machines i n the WSCC System [1]. The s t a b i l i t y study of such large systems i s very d i f f i c u l t , i f not impos-s i b l e , because of two major reasons: 1) The time -required for the computation i s almost p r o h i b i t i v e , very uneconomical i f every contingency at a l l s t r a t e g i c points of such systems are investigated; 2) The exact configuration and parameters of the whole system at any given moment may not be a v a i l a b l e to l o c a l operators because the data a c q u i s i t i o n of such systems would be extremely d i f f i c u l t . In recent years, extensive studies have been directed toward sim-p l i f y i n g the representation of the power system, as some parts of the system are replaced by f i c t i t i o u s low order equivalents, or "system equivalencing". In doing so, a power system must be divided i n t o two subsystems: 1) The "Study System" which i s of d i r e c t i n t e r e s t , and may include a l l or part of the l o c a l power system which may be represented i n d e t a i l . 2) The "External System" which i s interconnected to the study system, i t s configuration and parameters may not be known to the study system operators. By system equivalencing, the external system may be modelled by a hypothesized structure much simpler than the actual system, but i t i s also necessary that the equivalent be f a i t h f u l l y 2 simulating the same i n t e r a c t i n g e f f e c t of the o r i g i n a l external system on the study system. The equivalencing techniques are being used i n both steady state and dynamics studies. While the steady state equivalencing techniques have been very w e l l developed and i n use [2-5], the dynamic equivalencing tech-niques remain to be improved. 1-1 Dynamic Equivalencing Techniques Many dynamic equivalencing techniques have been developed. The p r e v a i l i n g approaches may be summarized as follows: 1-1-1 The I n f i n i t e Bus Approach This i s the oldest and simplest approach. C l a s s i c a l l y , a large external system i s represented by an i n f i n i t e bus of constant voltage and constant frequency. The representation i s not accurate, since the dynamic i n t e r a c t i n g e f f e c t of the external system on the study system i s completely neglected. 1-1-2 Modal Approach [6-9] From a complete set of nonlinear d i f f e r e n t i a l equations describing the e n t i r e system, the system equations are l i n e a r i z e d , eigenvalues and eigen-vectors are analyzed, the system matrix i s diagonalized, and those modes which have n e g l i g i b l e e f f e c t s on the study system are eliminated. The major d i f f i c u l t i e s i n applying the technique are: 1) It requires f u l l knowledge of the whole system which i s not neces-s a r i l y a v a i l a b l e . 2) It requires long time f o r computation of the eigenvalues and eigen-3 vectors for the diagonalization of a large system matrix. 3) The new variables obtained usually do not correspond to s p e c i f i c v a r i a b l e s of the system. 4) Not su i t a b l e for on-line a p p l i c a t i o n . 1-1-3 Coherency Approach [1, 10-14] The objective i n t h i s approach i s also to reduce the order of ex-t e r n a l system. Major steps are as follows: a) Identify the coherent groups through extensive transient s t a b i l i t y analysis; a l l units which swing together at the same frequency and at close angles are i d e n t i f i e d as one group. b) A l l generating units of each coherent group are connected to an equivalent bus through i d e a l complex r a t i o transformers. c) Each group i s then replaced by one equivalent generating unit by a dynamic aggregation method, including synchronous machines, e x c i t a -t i o n systems, governor-turbine systems, and power s t a b i l i z e r s . The merit of the coherency approach i s that, i n the equivalent model, the same power plant structure with meaningful parameters i s retained. However, the technique also has some disadvantages: 1) I t requires f u l l knowledge of the e n t i r e e l e c t r i c power system. 2) The number of coherent groups i s usually very large. 3) The coherent groups may change with the contingency. 4) Heavy computation i s required f or both transient s t a b i l i t y analysis and dynamic aggregation. 5) Due to the long computation time, the on-line a p p l i c a t i o n i s s t i l l d i f f i c u l t . 4 1-1-4 I d e n t i f i c a t i o n Approach [15-20] The i d e n t i f i c a t i o n schemes have been proposed i n recent years f o r the determination of dynamic equivalents of the external systems. Data obtained only from within the study system are used. The approach comprises generally three steps: a) The external system i s represented by a hypothesized structure much simpler than the o r i g i n a l . b) An error function i s formulated to compare the equivalent system response with the o r i g i n a l system response. c) An algorithm i s developed that the parameters of the hypothesized model are being adjusted while the error function i s minimized. The advantage of the i d e n t i f i c a t i o n approach may be summarized as follows: 1) I t requires no information about the external system. 2) The responses used f o r i d e n t i f i c a t i o n are measured l o c a l l y . 3) The external system order can be greatly reduced. 4) The computation time can be economized and the on-line a p p l i c a t i o n i s f e a s i b l e . 1-2 A Survey of the I d e n t i f i c a t i o n Studies The a p p l i c a t i o n of i d e n t i f i c a t i o n technique to power systems i s not new. Many studies have been made and useful algorithms developed [21-25] . As f o r the dynamic equivalencing of power systems, important con-t r i b u t i o n s are as follows. I t was Masiello and Schweppe [15] who f i r s t provided an algorithm to i d e n t i f y the equivalent external system. Their technique was based on a 5 hypothesized structure for the external system, and the unknown parameters were i d e n t i f i e d by using the normal power system f l u c t u a t i o n s which were observed within the l o c a l system. The paper has addressed the problem i n depth, except the choice of the equivalent external system model which was not c l e a r . They recommended that the model chosen by representative f o r the bandwidth of the dynamic range concerned. According to t h i s suggestion, the equivalent may not be unique; several models with d i f f e r e n t orders may be representative. In t h e i r study, the v a l i d i t y test of the estimated model was not given. P r i c e et a l . [16-17] also used normal fl u c t u a t i o n s for the i d e n t i -f i c a t i o n . The maximum l i k e l i h o o d estimate i s applied to i d e n t i f y the exter-n a l equivalent parameters. The c r i t e r i o n for convergence i s based upon the s i m i l a r i t y i n magnitudes between the o r i g i n a l and equivalent system r e -sponses. In t h e i r study, not a l l the unknown parameters can be i d e n t i f i e d . The l i k e l i h o o d function of one parameter i s f l a t without a well-defined maximum. The adequacy of the equivalent model was not examined and the ap p l i c a t i o n of the technique to a 14-generator external system proved un-s a t i s f a c t o r y . No v a l i d i t y test of the equivalent system was given. Ibrahim et a l . [18] used an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance for the dyna-mic equivalent i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . A deterministic power system was assumed. The dynamics of the external system were represented by stochastic l i n e a r difference equations, and a recursive least-square algorithm was used to es-timate the parameters. The model used for the equivalent external system, however, was purely mathematical, not a power system structure with meaning-f u l parameters, and the external equivalent model was found to be dependent on the nature and l o c a t i o n of the disturbance. 6 G i r i et a l . [19] applied the coherency approach for o f f - l i n e equiva-lencing and the i d e n t i f i c a t i o n approach f o r o n - l i n e equivalencing. Due to the coherency approach, a f u l l knowledge of the external system was required and the number of dynamic equivalent machines could be very large. In an e a r l i e r paper by Yu, El-Sharkawi and Wvong [20], the e n t i r e external system was represented by one large machine with meaningful para-meters . An i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance was used and a recursive least-squares algorithm was developed for i d e n t i f i c a t i o n of the unknown external equivalent parameters. Although the algorithm was e f f i c i e n t , the example was too simple, and no v a l i d i t y t e s t was given. Moreover, many other problems were not addressed, e.g., the uniqueness of the equivalent model, the a p p l i c a t i o n of the estimation technique to a much larger system, etc. It i s rather important to mention that i n some of the above studies [15-17], normal fluctuations are used for i d e n t i f i c a t i o n instead of inten-t i o n a l disturbances. The use of these f l u c t u a t i o n s , however, draw c r i t i c i s m among power engineers for two major reasons: 1) The normal f l u c t u a t i o n s which occur on a power system can be cate-gorized by two broad classes; changes i n loads, and hunting among the various generators and loads. The l a t t e r i s l a r g e l y a three phase phenomenon and i s probably well represented by the given model. But, the load v a r i a t i o n s which lead to the other type of f l u c t u a t i o n s on the power system have a s i g n i f i c a n t s i n g l e phase component and cannot be represented by a simple model. 2) Stanton [24] had worked on the problem of i d e n t i f y i n g power system dynamic models from normal operating data. From his experience, he advised against drawing any firm conclusions regarding p r a c t i c a l ap-p l i c a t i o n from the simulated r e s u l t s using normal operating data for 7 the i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . The c o l l e c t i o n and processing of the data to i d e n t i f y dynamic equivalents would be extremely d i f f i c u l t i n large interconnected systems. Also, the estimated parameters may not pro-vide accurate representation during contingencies with large d i s t u r b -ances . 1-3 Outline of the Thesis Research on the estimation of dynamic equivalent of e l e c t r i c power systems i s continued i n this t h e s i s . Taking into consideration the many un-solved problems i n previous works, the i n v e s t i g a t i o n . i s o u t l i n e d as follows: 1) To develop a basic multi-machine power system model for the dynamic studies. 2) To develop an estimation technique and fast convergent algorithm applicable to both noisy and deterministic systems. 3) To develop a technique choosing the equivalent model for the external system. 4) To apply the equivalency technique to d i f f e r e n t power systems. 5) To test the uniqueness of the i d e n t i f i e d equivalent external system by changing the l o c a t i o n and type of disturbance within the study system, and by using d i f f e r e n t machine responses of the study system for i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . 6) To v e r i f y the dynamic equivalent by comparing the model constants and the damping and synchronizing torques of the study system, before and a f t e r dynamic equivalencing. 7) To test the dynamic equivalent for severe contingencies by assuming three phase f a u l t s within the study system. 8 1-4 D e f i n i t i o n s of Some Important Terminologies For convenience, important terminologies used throughout t h i s thesis are defined as follows: Equivalent External System: ref e r s to the s i m p l i f i e d network representing the external system. Equivalent System: ref e r s to the system composed of the study system and the equivalent external system. Equivalent Machine: ref e r s to a machine of the equivalent external system. Equivalent Parameter: ref e r s to a parameter of the equivalent machine model. Boundary Line: r e f e r s to a f i c t i t i o u s l i n e drawn between the study system and the external system. Boundary Bus: r e f e r s to a bus on the boundary l i n e connected to both the study system and the external system. 9 2. A BASIC MULTI-MACHINE POWER SYSTEM MODEL An adequate synchronous machine model i s required to simulate the dynamic performance of a power system. Moreover, the behaviour of an i s o -l a t e d synchronous machine of a power system i s quite d i f f e r e n t from i t s behaviour i n a multi-machine power system because of the i n t e r a c t i o n s between machines. In t h i s Chapter, a basic multi-synchronous-machine power system model i s developed, for the dynamic studies i n general and for the estimation study i n p a r t i c u l a r . The dynamic i n t e r a c t i o n s between the machines are c l e a r l y represented, and the contribution of these i n t e r a c t i o n s to the s t a -b i l i t y of any machine i n the system i s considered. 2-1 Voltage Equations of Synchronous Machines In 1928, R.H. Park [26] developed the two reaction theory of the synchronous-machine, which has been the basis of the modern e l e c t r i c power system and synchronous machine studies. Modifications are, however, neces-sary to adapt the general theory to s p e c i f i c a p p l i c a t i o n s . The theory i s based on the transformation of armature winding of the synchronous machine on the three phase axes into a two winding equiva-lent on the d i r e c t (d) and quadrature (q) axes, F i g . 2.1, plus a zero-axis winding which i s not shown i n the f i g u r e . 10 F i g . 2.1 Winding representation of the synchronous machine by d and q axes. the form, The synchronous generator equations of F i g . 2.1 can be written i n V f = r f i f + P ¥ f V, = - r i J + P¥, - oif d a d d q V = - r i + P ? q a q q d where 11 and *d 1 CO o .

The following assumptions are usually made: 1) The e f f e c t of the damper windings i s much smaller than the damping provided by the power system s t a b i l i z e r s , loads, ... e t c . 2) The voltages P¥, and PY due to the rate of change of the fl u x l i n k -d q ages i n the respective d and q windings are n e g l i g i b l e as compared to the r o t a t i o n a l voltages , and a)¥ . d q 3) The per unit armature resistance of the large machines i s very small as compared to the per unit reactances; the resistance voltage i s n e g l i g i b l e .

The dynamic i n t e r a c t i o n s between the machines were ignored i n the model. These i n t e r -actions, however, could have large e f f e c t s on large and small machines i n a multi-machine system, e s p e c i a l l y with strong t i e s between them. Therefore, a multi-machine power system model including these in t e r a c t i o n s i s required. Yu et a l . [30-31] developed a multi-machine model for non-salient pole synchronous machines for t h e i r dynamic i n t e r a c t i o n s t udies. The model i s s u i t a b l e f o r steam-electric units, but may not be accurate enough for h y d r o - e l e c t r i c units i n which the saliency e f f e c t may not be n e g l i g i b l e . The basic multi-machine model presented i n t h i s thesis has s i m i l a r outlook l i k e that of reference [30], with the dynamic in t e r a c t i o n s between machines c l e a r l y represented.

IDENTIFICATION TECHNIQUE AND ALGORITHM 3-1 Estimation Technique The main objective of t h i s study i s to f i n d the dynamic equiva-lents f o r an external system through i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . The equivalent i s represented by a model of unknown parameters. The f i r s t step i s to f i n d a most s u i t a b l e model f o r the equivalencing, and the second step i s to minimize the errors of the equivalent system responses during i d e n t i f i c a -t i o n as compared with the pre-recorded o r i g i n a l system responses f o r the same disturbance. Many estimation techniques are a v a i l a b l e [37-41] . The technique, however, i s preferred to be simple, unbiased, r e l i a b l e and econ-omical i n computation. 3-1-1 Error Function The equations describing the dynamic equivalent system are ex-pressed s i m i l a r to those of the o r i g i n a l system, equations (2.34) and (2.36), but with a s i m p l i f i e d structure and less parameters. x(a) = A(a) x(a) + Dd (3.1) y(a) = H(a) x(a) (3.2) Where y.(ct) represents the responses of the dynamic equivalent system for the % Oi rb 1J same disturbance d of the o r i g i n a l system, x, y, A and H are a l l functions of a, the equivalent system parameter vector to be i d e n t i f i e d . Therefore, an e r r o r function may be defined by e(a) = y - y(a) (3.3) where y represents the responses of the o r i g i n a l system, which are d i r e c t l y measureable. 30 3-1-2 A Review of Estimation Techniques Motivated by todays' high-speed d i g i t a l computers, modern sequen-t i a l - p r o c e s s i n g approach i s applied to the estimation. Two techniques w i l l be b r i e f l y reviewed, the generalized least-squares estimation and the Markov (unbiased minimum-variance) estimation. The generalized weighted least-squares estimation can be used for the deterministic system. From the error function given by (3.3), which i s a non-linear function of the parameter vector a, a cost function of the quadratic form may be chosen t J.(a) = f / e'(a) W e(a) dt (3.4) t o where W i s a diagonal p o s i t i v e d e f i n i t e weighting matrix, and i t s elements are chosen that the responses i n smaller magnitudes be given larger weight-ing f a c t o r s . The unbiased minimum-variance estimation i s s u i t a b l e to systems with measurement noise and with the noise covariance known a - p r i o r i . This i s a s p e c i a l case of the generalized least-squares estimate, where W equals R - 1, and R i s a p o s i t i v e d e f i n i t e matrix representing the white measurement noise covariance. 3-1-3 Convergence Schemes To guarantee the convergency with minimum computational require-ment and reasonable time, the most popular techniques used i n power engineer-ing are based on the gradient methods, e s p e c i a l l y Newton's methods or steep-est-descent . 31 Taylor expansion of cost function or error function i s used i n Newton-Raphson and Gauss-Newton methods. The parameter updating scheme i s i n the form of a = a 0 - J " 1 J (3.5) u act a where J i s the gradient of J, and J i s the second der i v a t i v e of J . Since a aa J(a) = - / t f [ ( y - y ( a ) ) ' W (y-y(a))] dt t o then and t J a = " ; W ( y - ^ a > ^ d t t t ^ J = / f [y* W y"] dt - / f [y' W (y-y(a))] dt (3.6) aa a a aa J o o The difference between Newton-Raphson and Gauss-Newton methods i s that the l a t t e r neglect the second term of equation (3.6). The computation of the second d e r i v a t i v e J and i t s inverse J - 1 r aa aa are time consuming e s p e c i a l l y f o r large systems with a large number of para-meters to be estimated. Moreover, the convergence i s not guaranteed and an adjustable step s i z e k may be necessary, a = an - k J - 1 J (3.7) u aa a and the value of k cannot be e a s i l y chosen. The steepest descent method adjusts the parameter vector a accord-ing to the scheme a = an - K J (3.8) u a where K i s a diagonal matrix. Depending on the chosen value of K, the con-vergency may be slow but smooth, or fast but o s c i l l a t o r y . Moreover, the estimate may diverge for the large values of K. Since the convergency be-comes slower and slower when the optimum i s approached due to the small value of J , K must increase as J decreases, but must be constrained to a a prevent any divergency of the estimated parameters. The steepest descent with step-size control i s also based on the algorithm a = ag + 6a where 6a = - K J (3.9) a But to guarantee a fast convergency without divergence, the step-size i s constrained by g = (6a) ' G (6a) - C 2 (3.10) where g = 0 (3.10a) G i s a p o s i t i v e d e f i n i t e diagonal weighting matrix, and C i s a constraint value which w i l l not allow the step-size becoming too large that the e s t i -mate diverges or too small to slow the convergence. Introducing a Lagrange m u l t i p l i e r v, the cost function and the constraint equations can be combined i n one equation J*(a) = J(a) + v g (3.11) and r e s u l t i n g J = J + v g = 0 a a a J a = - 2 v G (6a) (3.12) 33 Substituting 6a of equation (3.9) into (3.12) gives K = ( i ) G"1 (3.13) 2v and 6a = (- — ) G _ 1 J 2v a Solving equation (3.10) y i e l d s = C [J' G _ 1 J ] " % (3.14) 2v a a Substituting the value of (~) of equation (3.14) into (3.13) gives the solu-t i o n of K K = C [ J ' G"1 J ' ] " * 5 G - 1 (3.15) a a Among these techniques, the steepest descent with step-size con-t r o l i s found superior to the others f o r the following reasons: 1) It does not require the c a l c u l a t i o n of the Hessian matrix J and ^ aa i t s inverse J - 1 . aa 2) The step-size i s automatically adjusted at each step a f t e r the con-s t r a i n t value C has been chosen. 3) A d i f f e r e n t step-size can be chosen for each parameter by adjusting the weighting matrix G. This i s e s p e c i a l l y h e l p f u l i f the cost function i s more s e n s i t i v e to some parameters than others. For the above reasons, the steepest descent with automatic step-s i z e control i s used i n t h i s thesis study. The value of the step-size con-s t r a i n t C also may be chosen according to the cost function behaviour during i d e n t i f i c a t i o n process. C i s reduced whenever the cost function tends to diverge and v i s e versa. 3-2 Algorithm An algorithm to estimate the dynamic equivalent of the external system i s shown i n F i g . 3.1, which consists of the following major steps: 1) Computer simulation of the dynamic response of the i - t h machine of the study system i n the o r i g i n a l system when an i n t e n t i o n a l d i s t u r b -ance i s applied to the same machine. The simulation i s an a l t e r n a -t i v e to actual measurements of a r e a l power system, which are not a v a i l a b l e i n t h i s study. 2) The s e l e c t i o n of the boundary of the study system and the external equivalent model, including the number of equivalent machines, type of models and number of parameters . 3) Computer simulation of the dynamic response of the i - t h machine of the equivalent system for the same i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance. 4) C a l c u l a t i o n and minimization of the cost function and sequentially updating the parameter vector a which has been discussed i n the l a s t s e c t i o n .

These matrices are functions of the system i n i t i a l steady state values calculated from a load flow study [42] . A f t e r the disturbance d i s chosen, the d i f f e r e n t i a l equation (3.16) can be integrated numerically. The response y of the i - t h machine i s com-puted and stored for consecutive i n t e r v a l s of time. The measurement noise v can be added afterwards i f desired. For the simulation of the dynamic response of the o r i g i n a l system due to an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance, considerations must be given to 1) load bus elimination 2) i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance. 3-3-1 Load Bus Elimination Equations (3.16) and (3.17) are written for an n-machine system with the load buses eliminated. The elimination of load buses w i l l not change the i n i t i a l steady state values of the machines, since the sum of i n -put and output currents at each load bus equal zero. Constant impedance load buses are assumed. Assume a power system of an n machine bus and an m load bus. The current equation may be written 37 y 1 2 _ 0 - ? 2 1 y 2 2 - - V 2 -(3.18) where and I l f r e s p e c t i v e l y , are the voltage vector and current vector of the machines, both of order n. V 2 i s an m vector of load bus voltages. The p a r t i t i o n e d matrices y n , yi2> Y21 a n a Y22 represent the admittances of the system, therefore [111. = t y n l [v 2] (3.19) where y = y - y y - ^ y (3.20) y 11 y 1 1 y 12 •x22 yZl The elimination of the load buses w i l l not change the values of the currents or the steady state values of the machines, but does change the transmission system. 3-3-2 Intentional Disturbance To i n t e n s i f y the dynamic i n t e r a c t i n g e f f e c t of the external system on the study system f o r parameter i d e n t i f i c a t i o n , an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance d i s necessary. The disturbance could be mechanical or e l e c t r i c a l . The mechanical disturbance, e.g. a change i n power output of the turbine for a ce r t a i n period of time, i s rather inconvenient to apply. On the other hand, the e l e c t r i c a l disturbance i s easy to control and the time constant i s small. Therefore, a pulsed e x c i t a t i o n voltage of c e r t a i n magnitude and duration within the power system voltage regulation l i m i t i s chosen for t h i s thesis study. 38 3-4 Boundary of the Study System and External Equivalent Model The boundary l i n e which separates the study system and the exter-nal system can be drawn i n a number of ways for the dynamic equivalent study. The number of equivalent machines depends upon the choice of the boundary l i n e . The order and the number of parameters of the external equivalent machine model are chosen so that the i d e n t i f i e d parameters w i l l be unique and the cost function minimum. 3-4-1 Number of Dynamic Equivalent Machines The boundary l i n e determines the number of dynamic equivalent machines of the external system. The retained buses at the boundary l i n e , or the "boundary buses", are connected to both sides, the study system and the external system, as shown i n F i g . 3.2(a). Each boundary bus of the equivalent system i s connected to one external equivalent machine as shown i n F i g . 3.2(b). The boundary l i n e may be drawn from geographic or other considera-t i o n s , but a l l parameters of the study system must be known.

Co 3-4-2 The Equivalent Machine Model and Number of Parameters 40 To obtain unique dynamic equivalents for the external system, a su i t a b l e model with an adequate number of parameters for the equivalent must be chosen. An over-represented high-order equivalent model with too many parameters w i l l not give unique estimated parameter values. In t h i s thesis study, equivalent models of d i f f e r e n t orders with d i f f e r e n t number of para-meters are l i s t e d i n Table 2.1, Section 2-7. They are l i s t e d i n the order that less important parameters may be removed f i r s t , and more important and meaningful parameters for the dynamic studies are to remain. F i g . 3.3 shows an algorithm of the reduction process. A f u l l -order equivalent model may be assumed i n the beginning. The v a r i a t i o n of the cost function J with respect to a l l equivalent parameter v a r i a t i o n s are then examined. If the cost function i s i n s e n s i t i v e to some parameters, enter the reduction loop and use the next lower-order model and/or fewer-parameter for the equivalent model u n t i l the cost function J becomes s e n s i -t i v e to a l l remaining parameters. The next step i s to i d e n t i f y these parameters for d i f f e r e n t i n i t i a l guesses. The r e s u l t s should be unique. If not, another model reduction i s necessary. Once unique r e s u l t s are ob-tained, an a d d i t i o n a l model reduction may not a f f e c t the uniqueness, but the cost function may not be minimum. F i g . 3.4 shows the v a r i a t i o n of the cost function with wide v a r i a -t i o n of two parameters i n a study. In t h i s p a r t i c u l a r study, a fourth-order twelve-parameter equivalent machine model was assumed to begin with. The cost function was s e n s i t i v e to the transmission l i n e resistance R, but i n s e n s i t i v e to the voltage regulator time constant TA. The model reduc-t i o n process was c a r r i e d out u n t i l the cost function was s e n s i t i v e to a l l 41 FULL MODEL CHECK J vs. CV NO REDUCTION PROCESS ESTIMATE OC FOR DIFFERENT INITIAL GUESSES NO REDUCTION PROCESS YES SUITABLE MODEL F i g . 3.3 Algorithm f o r the choice of a s u i t a b l e model f o r the equivalent machines. 42 a o 0.0 ( a ) l'.O - r ~i r 2.0 3.0 ZETRI/ZETRIX —l fl.O = 9 -cr 0£O S 0.0 ( b ) ZErRJ/ZETfilX. - 1 4.3 F i g . 3 . 5 The cost function vs. the damping c o e f f i c i e n t of a.dynamic equivalent machine a) a third-order five-parameter model b) a second-order three-parameter model. 43 remaining parameters and the estimated parameters were unique, r e s u l t i n g a third-order five-parameter equivalent model. D e t a i l of th i s study w i l l be included i n Chapter 4. It i s important to mention that the i n s e n s i t i v i t y of the cost function to c e r t a i n parameter does not j u s t i f y the elimination of that p a r t i c u l a r parameter because of two reasons: 1) The cost function i n s e n s i t i v e to ou i n a higher order model may be-come s e n s i t i v e to the same parameter i n a lower order model. F i g . 3.5 shows that the cost function was found i n s e n s i t i v e to the damp-ing c o e f f i c i e n t of the third-order five-parameter model, F i g . 3.5(a), but s e n s i t i v e to the same parameter of a reduced second-order three-parameter model, F i g . 3.5(b). 2) The parameter may be e s s e n t i a l to represent the dynamic cha r a c t e r i s -t i c of the synchronous machine, such as transient reactance or i n e r -t i a constant. 3-5 Estimation of Equivalent Machine Voltages For the simulation of the dynamic response of the equivalent sys-tem, the terminal voltages of the equivalent machines must be estimated when a transmission l i n e are included i n the equivalent model. There w i l l be no changes i n topology, parameters, and steady state values of the study system. Let the currents, voltages and admittances of the study system and the equivalent system r e s p e c t i v e l y , i d e n t i f i e d by the subscripts s and e. The current equation of the o r i g i n a l system may be written ^ss v s e - v s -X e - - y e s v e e - v e -(3.21) 44 and that of the equivalent system y s s y s e I. es ^ee - r V s i - - V (3.22) Since the order of the external system and the number of buses have been greatly reduced, the admittances' matrices of equations (3.21) and (3.22) are d i f f e r e n t , but the off-diagonal elements of the submatrix y'gg are the same as those of y s s . Let the study system current of equation (3.22) be w r i t t e n -I*. = y" V s se e (3.23) where XS = I s - yss V s If y g e i s a square and nonsingular matrix, then ^ = $-1 I* e J se s (3.24) (3.25) But, i f y s e i s not square matrix and equation (3.23) i s over-determinant, i . e . the number of buses of the external equivalent system i s l e s s than the number of buses of the study system, a l i n e a r least-square estimate of V can be obtained = (y y ) e J se Jse' -1 x * J se s (3.26) When the number of buses of the external equivalent system i s more than the number of buses of the study system (under-determinanat system), a l i n e a r t\j least-square estimate of V e may be obtained by assuming a cost function of the form J = y ( V e - V e ) ' W (V e - V e) (3.27) - nj where V e is chosen value for V e from engineering judgement according to the system topology, and W is a weighting matrix.

The same pre-recorded o r i g i n a l system responses due to the pulsed e x c i t a t i o n are used also for parameter i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . 4-3-1 Selection of the Equivalent Model for Test System 1 The equivalent model of test system 1 i s f i r s t assumed to be a f u l l model of fourth-order and twelve-parameter. The model i s given i n Table 2.1 and shown i n F i g . 2.5. However, the cost function i n s e n s i t i v i t y to some of these parameters indicates that the model i s over-represented. Examples were shown i n F i g . 3-4. In the f i g u r e , the cost function i s i n s e n s i t i v e to the e x c i t a t i o n time constant TA, but s e n s i t i v e to the transmission l i n e resistance R. The next reduced model l i s t e d i n Table 2.1 i s then tested. I t i s a third-order and seven-parameter model i n which the transmission l i n e and voltage regulator are eliminated, and a non-salient pole machine i s assumed. Although the model i s adequate according to the cost f u n c t i o n - v a r i a t i o n t e s t , i t does not give unique estimated parameters. A further reduction step i s 54 then e s s e n t i a l to s a t i s f y the uniqueness condition. The reduction achieved by removing the l o c a l load of the equivalent machine r e s u l t i n g i n the t h i r d -order and five-parameter model given i n Table 2.1 and shown i n F i g . 2.6. The model proves adequate to simulate the dynamic int e r a c t i o n s of the exter-nal system and the estimated parameters are unique. 4-3-2 Selection of the Equivalent Model for Test System 2 Test system 2 has two external dynamic equivalents as shown i n F i g . 4.4(b). The same model i s assumed for the two equivalent machines. The rough choice of the equivalent model i s somehow rela t e d to the s i z e of the external system; the larger the external system, the simpler the equivalent model could be. Examination of the data of test system 2 shows that the external system i s quite large. In order to save computation time, i t i s decided that the third-order five-parameter model be used as a s t a r t -ing point since i t i s adequate for test system 1. The cost f u n c t i o n - v a r i a t i o n test shows that the cost function according to t h i s model i s i n s e n s i t i v e to some parameters. Typical examples are shown i n F i g . 4.5. Therefore, one more reduction step i s c a r r i e d out, re-s u l t i n g i n the second-order three-parameter model which i s given i n Table 2.1 and shown i n F i g . 2.7. It i s a constant voltage behind transient reactance which proves to be the most suitable model. 55 F i g . 4.5 The cost function vs. some parameters of test system 2; a t h i r d order five-parameter model. 56 4-3-3 Selection of the Equivalent Model for Test System 3 Test systems 2 and 3 are constituted from the same power system but with d i f f e r e n t boundaries. There are three machines included i n the study system, and three dynamic equivalents are assumed for test system 3, as shown i n F i g . 4.4(c). The same model i s chosen for each equivalent machine. Moreover, the equivalent model chosen for te s t system 2 i s found also adequate for test system 3. 4-4 Estimated Parameters The parameters of the equivalent models are i d e n t i f i e d by the algorithm developed i n e a r l i e r chapters of t h i s t h e s i s . The computer pro-gram i s supplied with the f u l l data of the study system, the topology and the hypothesized model of the equivalent external system, the pre-recorded o r i g i n a l system responses due to disturbance, and the i n i t i a l guesses of parameters. The responses of machine #1 due to a pulsed e x c i t a t i o n voltage of one second duration applied to the same machine are recorded for two seconds. The responses are used for the choice of equivalent model and the i d e n t i f i -cation of the unknown parameters. For the parameters to converge to t h e i r optimum values, the number of i t e r a t i o n s v a r i e s enormously and depends very much upon both the step s i z e and the i n i t i a l guess. Tables 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6 show the estimated parameters of test systems 1, 2 and 3, respectively, f o r three d i f f e r e n t i n i t i a l guesses for each system. Table 4.5 shows the parameters of the two equivalent machines while Table 4.6 includes the parameters of the three equivalent machines. 57 It i s c l e a r from the tables that a l l the parameters i n each case study con-verge c l o s e l y to the same values regardless of the i n i t i a l guesses. I t i s also shown that d i f f e r e n t boundaries y i e l d s d i f f e r e n t equivalents f o r the same o r i g i n a l system.

The computational time varies widely and depends strongly on the following f a c -tors : 1) The number of dynamic equivalent machines. 2) The order and number of unknown parameters of the equivalent machine model.

F i g . 4.20 Responses of test system 3 with noise added to the o r i g i n a l system responses. 3) The step s i z e . 4) The i n i t i a l guess of the unknown parameters. The number of dynamic equivalent machines i s decided by how many machines of the study system are of great concern. The model of equivalent machines are chosen from o f f - l i n e i d e n t i f i c a t i o n so that the estimated parameters are unique. The step siz e cannot be f r e e l y chosen and must be constrained as suggested i n the e a r l i e r part of t h i s t h e s i s . Therefore, the most important factor for reducing the computational time for on-line i d e n t i f i c a t i o n i s the i n i t i a l guess. The number of i t e r a t i o n s can be greatly reduced i f the i n i t i a l guess i s close to the f i n a l value. Based on these considerations, i t i s suggested that the i d e n t i f i -cation may proceed i n two steps. Step 1, Off-Line I d e n t i f i c a t i o n : When no p r i o r information of the external equivalent system i s a v a i l a b l e . I t i s a r e l a t i v e l y long computa-t i o n a l process i n which the topology of the external system i s hypothesized and the equivalent model i s chosen. The i n i t i a l guess of the equivalent model parameters could be f a r from the f i n a l value. Step 2, On-Line I d e n t i f i c a t i o n : The computational time process c could be very short a f t e r step 1; the o f f - l i n e i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . The dynamic equivalent can be frequently updated, where the i d e n t i f i e d parameters from the o f f - l i n e process can be used as the i n i t i a l guess, even i f there i s r e l a t i v e l y major change i n the external system. To demonstrate the f e a s i b i l i t y of on-line i d e n t i f i c a t i o n , major change i s assumed i n the external system of t e s t system 1, the transmission l i n e connecting machine #4 to the boundary bus i s assumed to be double l i n e , F i g . 4.21 Responses of test system 1 a f t e r updating the dynamic equivalent. 79 one of them i s tripped o f f due to a three phase f a u l t . The dynamic equiva-lent of the external system i s no longer the same as p r e f a u l t . To update , the dynamic equivalent parameters, the pref a u l t estimated values are used as the i n i t i a l guesses. Table 4.15 shows the updated parameters, i t takes only s i x i t e r a t i o n s f o r the i d e n t i f i c a t i o n .

The white measurement noise does not create problems for the i d e n t i f i c a t i o n . The load fluctuations i n power systems can be ignored when the e f f e c t of an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance i s much larger than these f l u c t u a t i o n s . On-line i d e n t i f i c a t i o n can be expedited when the parameter values from o f f - l i n e i d e n t i f i c a t i o n are used as the i n i t i a l guess. The dynamic equivalent can be frequently updated. 81 5. VERIFICATION OF THE VALIDITY OF THE EQUIVALENTS In Chapter 4, the structure of the equivalent system has been hy-pothesized, and i t s parameters have been i d e n t i f i e d . Although the machine responses of the o r i g i n a l system and the dynamic equivalent system due to the i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance are i n good agreement, more v e r i f i c a t i o n s to show the v a l i d i t y of the dynamic equivalent are necessary. Three more proofs of the v a l i d i t y of the estimated dynamic equiva-lent are provided i n t h i s t h e s i s : 1) The K,.., , K .. constants of the study system machines are almost I n 611 equal whether computed from the o r i g i n a l or the equivalent system parameters. 2) The e l e c t r i c torques of the study system machines simulated from the o r i g i n a l and dynamic equivalent systems are i n good agreement. 3) The study system machines' responses of the o r i g i n a l and dynamic equivalent systems due to a severe f a u l t within the study system are i n good agreement. A three-phase f a u l t i s tested on each machine bus of the study system for a l l cases. A l l these are aiming to prove the equivalents estimated by the techniques developed i n t h i s thesis are v a l i d . However, i n power industry the K constants of the o r i g i n a l system cannot be calculated unless f u l l i n -formation of the external system i s known, and the three-phase s h o r t - c i r c u i t t e s t i s not recommended for engineering p r a c t i c e . 82 5.1 Model Constants of the Study System The constants of a machine model i n multi-machine power system depend upon the configuration and parameters of the e n t i r e system. When the external system i s replaced by an equivalent, the state v a r i a b l e s and s e l f constants of the model w i l l be a l t e r e d , unless the external equivalent sys-tem has the same e f f e c t as the o r i g i n a l external system. The measured variables of the i - t h machine used for i d e n t i f i c a t i o n are speed Acu., power AP . and voltage AV..

Each torque has two components, the synchronizing component i n phase with the 88 torque angle, and damping component i n phase with the speed. The p e r f o r -mance and s t a b i l i t y of the i - t h machine depend very much upon these torque components; the e l e c t r i c torques of the study system machines of the o r i g i -n a l and dynamic equivalent systems must be i n good agreement;, i . e . the external equivalent system has the same dynamic i n t e r a c t i n g e f f e c t on the study system as the o r i g i n a l external system. The equations for the e l e c t r i c torque components are included i n the Appendix. Computer simulated r e s u l t s of the study system e l e c t r i c torque components of the o r i g i n a l and dynamic equivalent systems are given i n Tables 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6 for t e s t systems 1, 2 and 3, r e s p e c t i v e l y .

CONCLUSIONS The thesis confirms the f e a s i b i l i t y of i d e n t i f y i n g dynamic equiva-lents of external systems of large e l e c t r i c power systems from measurements obtained within the study system. From the r e s u l t s of t h i s study, the f o l -lowing are concluded: 1) The method can be implemented without the need of data gathering or data trans f e r from the external system. 2) By choosing an i n t e n t i o n a l disturbance with i t s e f f e c t much larger than that due to normal load f l u c t u a t i o n s , yet within the safe v o l t -age regulation l i m i t of the power system, r e l a t i v e l y simple estima-t i o n technique can be applied to the dynamic equivalent estimation. 3) The study and equivalent systems are modelled as a power system with the same parametric structure, consequently, a multi-machine model has been developed f o r the dynamic range. 4) An algorithm i s developed to choose the most suitable model for the external equivalent system based on the cost function s e n s i t i v i t y and the uniqueness of the equivalent parameters. 5) For the cases studied, the dynamic equivalents are unique regardless of the nature and l o c a t i o n of the disturbance. 6) The v a l i d i t y of the equivalent systems are v e r i f i e d by the agreement i n the values of the K l . . , , K6.. constants, and the s e l f and xx 11 i n t e r a c t i n g e l e c t r i c torques and t h e i r synchronizing and damping com-ponents of the study system machines, whether computed from the o r i g i -n a l system parameters or from the equivalent system parameters. 7) The v a l i d i t y i s further v e r i f i e d from the re s u l t s of three-phase short c i r c u i t t e s t s , the dynamic responses of the o r i g i n a l system are in 104 good agreement with those of the equivalent system, but not with the i n f i n i t e bus representation. 8) The technique presented i n t h i s thesis could be developed for on-line equivalencing by frequently updating the dynamic equivalents whenever needed. 9) The dynamic equivalents developed i n t h i s thesis are for the dynamic s t a b i l i t y studies; the l i n e a r i z e d model has been used. For transient s t a b i l i t y studies, however, more work must be done, which s h a l l be continued i n the future. For future work, the following topics are suggested: 1) Improving the accuracy by using a nonlinear model for the study system. 2) Design c o n t r o l l e r s for the s t a b i l i z a t i o n of the e n t i r e system including the dynamic equivalents. 105 APPENDIX A l Self E l e c t r i c Torque Equations The e l e c t r i c torque of a machine generated by the machine i t s e l f i s r esultant of the mechanical loop e l e c t r i c torque and e l e c t r i c a l loop e l e c t r i c torque.

Title | Estimation of dynamic equivalents of external electric power systems |
Creator |

Description | The growing size and complexity of modern electric power systems necessitate the need to develop dynamic equivalents of the external system for local system dynamic studies. An estimation technique is developed in this thesis to identify the dynamic equivalents of external systems. An introduction is given in Chapter 1. A Basic multi-machine model for dynamic studies is developed in Chapter 2. The dynamic equivalent is estimated from information measured locally due to an intentional disturbance. To reduce computational requirements, a weighted least-squares algorithm with adaptive step size scheme is used, and a proper model for the external equivalent is chosen in Chapter 3. Applying the developed techniques, equivalent parameters are estimated for three test systems, and the results are included in Chapter 4. In Chapter 5, the dynamic equivalents are first verified by comparing the dynamic interacting effect of the external system on the study system for both original and equivalent systems. The equivalents are further verified by three-phase short-circuits on machine buses of the study system. The dynamic responses of the original systems and the equivalent systems are compared. Conclusions are drawn in Chapter 6 that the dynamic equivalent derived by the technique developed in this thesis is unique that the estimated equivalent is a good representation of the original external system, and that it can be developed for on-line identification. |
