CCBY A non-isolated dc-dc converter with chain-links of sub-modules (SMs) is proposed in this paper. The converter can perform as a dc transformer with low step-up ratio. To demonstrate the step-up dc-dc conversion, the converter is operated in resonant conversion mode, achieving soft-switching and inherent-balancing of SM capacitor voltages. The circuit configuration is presented and the operation principle is analyzed in the paper. Experimental results based on a downscaled prototype validate the performance of the proposed converter as a low step-up ratio dc transformer. The converter also exhibits a good linearity covering a broad range.
Bottrell N, Lang P, Green T, 2017, Algorithm for soft open points to solve thermal and voltage constraints in low-voltage distribution networks, Pages: 1567-1570
© 2017 The Institution of Engineering and Technology. All rights reserved. Thermal and voltage constraints in the low-voltage network (0.4 kV) may become more prevalent if increase in load or increase in distributed generation occur. Typically, constraints in the distribution network are solved by replacing the transformer, replacing the feeders, or installing a new substation. One solution to avoid these costly reinforcements is to utilise power electronics. The UK Power Networks project called Flexible Urban Networks-Low Voltage explored the use of connecting multiple feeders with power electronics. This study reports on the design of the control algorithm and demonstrates the operation by presenting field trial results.
Chaffey G, Green TC, 2017, Low speed protection methodology for a symmetrical monopolar HVDC network
Protecting a future HVDC network from short circuit DC faults is presently expected to require extensive implementation of fast HVDC circuit breakers, allowing for rapid fault isolation. The requirement for circuit breakers may, however, be reduced or removed depending on the protection methodology, resulting in a slower post-fault recovery. The expected fault response and the subsequent network recovery is dependent on the circuit breaker, network, and converter configurations. This paper examines a low speed protection methodology for a symmetrical monopolar HVDC system, a configuration which requires pole to pole balancing following a pole to ground fault. The fault clearance and network recovery timings are therefore evaluated for both pole to pole and pole to ground faults on several case study networks.

Mendonca TRF, Collins ME, Pinto MF, et al., 2017, Decentralisation of power flow solution for facilitating active network management, Pages: 1669-1672
© 2017 The Institution of Engineering and Technology. All rights reserved. The rapid growth in connections of distributed energy resources (DER) is leading to constrains in distribution networks that were not designed with this in mind. The required traditional reinforcement is expensive and so network operators and utilities have sought to use active network management (ANM) as a more effective approach. However, ANM as often proposed relies on a centralised data acquisition and control scheme, which is a challenge if the numbers of DER across the distribution network are very large. In order to avoid these undesirable features, efforts have been directed into decentralising ANM. This study presents a decentralised power flow solution that reduces centralised calculations and facilitates ANM. The formulation of the algorithm and the approximations it rests on are described. Simulation results demonstrate that errors in estimating voltages and power flows due to non-local changes in power flow are as small as 0.1%.
Merlin MMC, Judge PD, Chaffey G, et al., 2017, Soft-switching of the director switch in the alternate arm converter using blocked sub-modules, 2017 IEEE 18th Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics, COMPEL 2017
© 2017 IEEE. The presence of Director Switches (DS) in its arms enables the Alternate Arm Converter (AAC) to generate smooth current waveforms while using a reduced number of Sub-Modules (SMs) when compared to the Modular Multilevel Converter. To maximise the power efficiency of the AAC and simplify the DS design, it is highly beneficial to soft-switch the DS. This paper presents a method which reliably ensures their soft-switching operation using the blocked state of SMs during the non-conducting part of the cycle of an arm. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method over a wide range of operating conditions.
