Novel Method for Rapidly Constructing Active Power Steady-State Security Regions Incorporating the Equivalent Reactances of TCSCs
AbstractActive power steady-state security regions (APSSRs), which can provide guidance for prevention and control through security checks, is of great importance for the safe operation of power systems in which more and more sustainable energy power generation is integrated. As a mature flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) device, thyristor-controlled series compensators (TCSCs) can carry out series compensation for the transmission line by controlling its equivalent reactance. With the change of the equivalent reactance parameter of a TCSC, the nodal admittance matrix and power flow distribution of the power system also changes. Inevitably, the APSSR will be different. Therefore, it is necessary and important to further incorporate the equivalent reactance parameters of TCSCs in the APSSR expression, which is generally established in the space of node active power injections. In this paper, a rapid construction method of APSSRs incorporating the equivalent reactances of TCSCs is proposed. Firstly, applicability and efficiency of the conventional APSSR construction method for power systems with TCSCs are analyzed. Further, with equivalent disconnection of TCSC branches, the effect of TCSC equivalent reactances on the distribution of active power flow through changing the structure parameters is treated as modifying node active power injections. On this basis, explicit expressions of APSSRs with a single TCSC equivalent reactance parameter and double TCSC equivalent reactance parameters are derived, respectively. Moreover, by deducing the general formula of APSSRs with multiple TCSC equivalent reactance parameters, the feasibility of the proposed method for power systems with multiple TCSCs is analyzed. Eventually, via benchmarks with different scales and a different number of TCSCs, validity and superiorities of the proposed method in computational efficiency are demonstrated. View Full-Text
