Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern power distribution and transmission networks are undergoing a (r)evolution due to the constant introduction of new technologies, most of them based on the use of “smart” solutions, information communication technology (ICT) systems, new sophisticated control schemes, etc. Moreover, the use of HVDC transmission systems, with more capability to deliver and utility for connecting offshore renewable energy sources to land, are under development. Increasingly, sophisticated protection technologies and online diagnosis techniques are being introduced to detect and to prevent faults on power networks or blackouts in order to avoid the interruption of the power supply and thereby improve the electricity security of the transmission and distribution systems.

Electricity security refers to the power system’s capability to withstand events or incidents producing abnormal system conditions, or provide contingencies, i.e., failures or outages of system components, with minimum acceptable service disruption. Modern networks are subject to a wide range of disturbances, both natural disturbances, such as lightning strikes and faults induced by weather conditions (ice, falling trees, storms), and man-made disturbances, due to switching devices and intentional electromagnetic interference, and IEMI. Furthermore, HVDC lines are often built in parallel with existing HVAC transmission lines, increasing the possibilities of electromagnetic coupling among them.

These disturbances can lead to effects ranging from sensitive load damage and insulation deterioration, even to power supply interruption and blackout.

It is clear that the electromagnetic environment of power networks is becoming increasingly complex, with new challenges that need addressing. This Special Issue is concerned with the development of new models and simulation techniques for power networks together with interfacing techniques of different simulation tools, to cover one or more of the issues before exposed. Papers that address electricity security will be particularly welcomed.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Simulation of power transmission line electromagnetic transients;
  • Numerical modelling;
  • New modelling techniques in frequency and time domain to simulate power networks involving phenomena with a wide range of frequencies;
  • Multiphysics simulations;
  • Co-simulation of transmission–distribution–communication models;
  • Aging of structures due to electrical and mechanical stress;
  • Hard and soft fault detection techniques;
  • HVDC and HVAC networks;
  • Online power network diagnosis techniques;
  • EMI and IEMI;
  • Lightning strikes.

This paper presents the methodology to detect and identify the type of fault that occurs in the shunt compensated static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) transmission line using a combination of Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Naive Bayes (NB) classifiers. To study this, the network model is designed using Matlab/Simulink. Different types of faults, such as Line to Ground (LG), Line to Line (LL), Double Line to Ground (LLG) and the three-phase (LLLG) fault, are applied at disparate zones of the system, with and without STATCOM, considering the effect of varying fault resistance. The three-phase fault current waveforms obtained are decomposed into several levels using Daubechies (db) mother wavelet of db4 to extract the features, such as the standard deviation (SD) and energy values. Then, the extracted features are used to train the classifiers, such as Multi-Layer Perceptron Neural Network (MLP), Bayes and the Naive Bayes (NB) classifier to classify the type of fault that occurs in the system. The results obtained reveal that the proposed NB classifier outperforms in terms of accuracy rate, misclassification rate, kappa statistics, mean absolute error (MAE), root mean square error (RMSE), percentage relative absolute error (% RAE) and percentage root relative square error (% RRSE) than both MLP and the Bayes classifier.
