Risk Assessment of Power System Considering Frequency Dynamics and Cascading Process
AbstractFrequency security is vital to the safety of power systems and has been scrutinized for many years. The conventional frequency security analysis only checks whether the frequency after anticipated initial failures can remain in the normal range based on some aggregated models, but the influence of potential cascading failures has not been considered yet. This is not enough, especially when the modern power system suffers the increasing threat of cascading failures. Therefore, this paper proposes a novel frequency simulation model considering the influence of cascading failure to reveal the security level of power systems comprehensively. The proposed model is based on a platform on which the frequency dynamics and the power flow distributions can be calculated jointly. Moreover, simulation models of protection devices and some supervisory operation-control schemes are also taken into account. Case studies validate the effectiveness of the proposed model on the IEEE 39-bus system. Moreover, the results of some further probabilistic simulations under different operation parameters are obtained, which show the great significance of improving the frequency regulation performance to cope with challenges of blackouts.
