Abstract

This paper proposes an active splitting scheme especially suitable for longitudinal power systems (LPS). The proposed scheme is based on a modified out-of-step (OOS) algorithm combined with an angle difference method using synchrophasor measurements. The remedial actions are based on the detection of possible loss of synchronism due to severe disturbances. The scheme was tested on a detailed dynamic model of the Central Interconnected System of Chile, a good example of extreme LPS. Obtained results show that remedial actions taken by the proposed protection scheme are able to avoid the total collapse of the system during critical contingencies. View Full-Text
