As the penetration level of renewable energy sources (RESs) increases, the decrease in the system inertia and spinning reserves will be one of the major challenges for the secure operation of power systems. Recently, in order to secure power system frequency within the limit defined in the grid code, accurate analysis on the frequency responsive reserves is getting important. In this study, method of evaluating the minimum level of inertia along with the required reserves to secure system frequency is developed. Furthermore, maximum allowable penetration level of RESs is analyzed in order to secure frequency after a sudden loss of a single generator unit. And with the evaluated minimum inertia for the secure frequency, this study shows the amount of the increased generation and the system frequency response in the time frame after a single generator or two generator units are tripped off. In the developed method, increase in RES penetration is illustrated as a negative load while considering the merit order of conventional generators. A case study is conducted on the future Korean power system of 2024.

The penetration of Renewable Energy Source (RES) has been increasing because RES is drawing attention by the environmental problem in the worldwide. The power flow can be changed from unidirectional to bidirectional because of increasing the penetration of RES. In bidirectional system, the efficient operation of conventional Voltage Regulators (VRs) is difficult. As one of the various methods to reinforce the conventional VR, the Volt-VAR control of the Smart Inverter (SI) is used for supporting the voltage by using the reactive power of RES. In this paper, the Volt-VAR control curve with the modified dead band is analyzed for the factors affecting the Hosting Capacity (HC) and the enhanced method to obtain the maximum HC. The modified Volt-VAR control curve is applied and the power flow is calculated through Open source Distribution System Simulator (OpenDSS). The maximum HC is obtained through Genetic Algorithm (GA) using MATLAB.

BESS의 충?방전 효율 및 전력가격의 변동폭이 비용절감 효과에 미치는 영향 분석 Impact of BESS Charging/Discharging Efficiency and Electricity Price Fluctuation on the Reduction of Electricity Bill

오석화(Seok-Hwa Oh) ; 진영규(Young-Gyu Jin)

In recent years, the battery energy storage system (BESS) has been attracting great attention as an alternative to promoting renewable energy sources. Nevertheless, the market for small-scale BESS is still in its infancy particularly due to its high cost. However, the small-scale BESS for homes and buildings is expected to grow in volume as its cost decreases. The customers utilize the BESS mainly for the purpose of cost reduction, and many studies have been conducted. However, the mutual effects of the BESS charging/discharging efficiency and the electricity price fluctuation are not sufficiently considered in the previous researches. Thus, in this study, their impacts on the reduction of electricity bills are analyzed. Specifically, we derive the relationship between BESS efficiency and the price fluctuation for the optimal BESS operation. Additionally, it is shown through the simulations that they can have significant impacts on the number of charging and discharging operations of the BESS and consequently on the reduction of electricity bills. The results may provide customers and policymakers with insights on how to effectively use and disseminate the BESS.

김치연(Chi-Yeon Kim) ; 김채린(Chae-Rin Kim) ; 조수환(Soo-Hwan Cho)

The penetration of Electric Vehicles(EV) has been increasing worldwide recently to reduce greenhouse gases(GHG), and the government plans to supply about 3 million EV until 2030. The EV charging pattern is determined by the ToU(Time-of-Use) tariff, and is mainly charged from 18:00 to 23:00, which is the middle load period. The EV charging demand will further increase the power demand for apartments, which surges after 18:00 after returning home, so it is necessary to accurately forecast the EV charging demand pattern. In this paper, we determine the probability variables of input data such as SoC(State-of-Charge), charging start time, and charging method of EV users to forecast the EV charging demand pattern based on Monte Carlo simulation. In addition, the changes in the power demand patterns of the apartment according to the EV charging demand patterns are estimated using the actual data of the apartment power demand pattern. Furthermore, we estimate changes in the pattern of power demand and changes in the peak load time according to the ratio of EVs per household of apartments nationwide.

이 마데 두위 달만타라(I Made Dwi Darmantara) ; 최호영(Ho-Young Choi) ; 임승민(Seung-Min Lim) ; 김철환(Chul-Hwan Kim)

The increasing of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) interconnection such as PV into the microgrid has increase the case of frequency instability. The combination of Demand Response (DR) and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) can be used as the two-stage frequency regulation to keep the frequency stability in the system. In this paper, a method to select the optimal BESS threshold value in the DR and BESS two-stage frequency regulation is proposed. The IEEE standard 13-bus distribution network was modified as an islanded microgrid and used to perform the simulation. The simulation results shows that the combined DR and BESS with an optimal BESS threshold value can keep the frequency within the maximum allowable frequency nadir value and reduce the energy usage of BESS.

고창성(Chang-Sung Ko) ; 이남호(Nam-Ho Lee) ; 남순열(Soon-Ryul Nam)

In this paper, a negative-sequence current differential algorithm using asynchronous positive-sequence voltages is proposed to solve the problem that the negative-sequence current differential algorithm using asynchronous negative-sequence voltages may cause malfunction due to the small magnitude of the negative-sequence voltages. This algorithm using asynchronous negative-sequence voltages is an algorithm for solving erroneous operation due to effects of fault resistance and time synchronization problems of current differential algorithm. And this paper explains why positive-sequence voltage was used, and difference in detection of fault direction at relay point of each algorithm. And then, Each algorithm is tested in an IEC-61850 based centralized protection system environment configured using Real Time Digital Simulator and IEDs(Intelligent Electronic Devices), which are implemented with the MMS-EASE Lite library and Evaluation Modules. The test results show that only the proposed algorithm operate successfully, and therefore the proposed algorithm is appropriate for transmission line backup protection.

이경민(Kyung-Min Lee) ; 박철원(Chul-Won Park)

Recently, for real-time monitoring of renewable energy, a wide area power system monitoring and operation technology using PMU has emerged. Through WAMS based on the PMU, time synchronization data for a wide area is acquired and a vast amount of data is accumulated. Therefore, it is a problem to be solved in the future to process this data and deliver highly usable and valuable system status information to system operators. This paper proposes a new systemic phenomenon identification algorithm using big data of PMU installed in RES and a DNN. First, the PMU installed at the RES in the Gangwon region is introduced, and then the data structure collected is explained. Next, by analyzing each system phenomenon from the PMU data, a total of 8 types of system data such as steady state, tap rise, tap fall, feed-in and out, etc. are generated. After conducting supervised learning by constructing learning data for 8 systematic phenomena using a DNN, systematic phenomena discrimination is performed on the DNN model learned through the test data. Finally, the algorithm was designed, implemented, and evaluated to identify robust systematic phenomena for new PMU based big data. The simulation results showed that the proposed new algorithm accurately discriminates all systematic phenomena.

Battery system might be severely effected by unexpected ferro-resonance phenomenon in Li-ion battery based ESS, which is energetically installed and operated in large scale way. Therefore, this paper defines mechanism of the ferro-resonance phenomenon with L-C series and series-parallel combination circuits, which is regarded as one of electrical hazards, and proposes characteristics of the ferro-resonance through graphical solutions and equivalent circuit. And also, this paper proposes an algorithm to prevent ferro-resonance phenomenon in the interconnected transformer that can avoid the ferro-resonance by calculating appropriate capacity of PCS filter based on the presented ferro-resonance characteristics. Furthermore, this paper performs modeling of ESS based on PSCAD/EMTDC, which is composed of 3-phase power supply system including circuit breaker and interconnected transformer, PCS(power control system) and battery system. From the simulation results based on the proposed modeling, it is confirmed that secondary voltage of interconnected transformer for ESS can be rapidly increased due to the ferro-resonance phenomenon in L-C series and series-parallel combination circuits and then the battery system may be severely affected by such rapid over-voltage. And also, it is confirmed that the proposed prevention algorithm of ferro-resonance can contribute to stable operation of ESS by installing optimal capacity of filter in PCS.

김승호(Seung-Ho Kim) ; 최형석(Hyoung-Seok Choi) ; 김진용(Jin-Yong Kim) ; 한 아(Ah Han)

ESS(Energy Storage Systems) using lithium ion battery are rapidly increasing their capacity because they can efficiently store electrical energy in a small area with high energy density. However, 29 fire accidents have been reported in Korea for last 4 years. Up to now, the root cause of ESS fire has not been clearly defined, but some lithium ion battery manufacturer assert that the reason of fire may be caused by CMV(Common Mode Voltage) and leakage current. This study investigated the mechanism, measuring, acceptable level, and mitigation of CMV and leakage current through experimental field analysis with its corresponding simulation. The stray capacitance of IGBT module and lithium-ion battery are investigated as the cause of CMV and leakage current, and the magnitude variation of CMV and leakage current by the type of system earthing of the AC side is investigated too, then this paper suggested the use of an isolation transformer as a mitigation method. In addition, it was analyzed how the use of an isolation transformer can reduce CMV and this study proved that the installation of an isolation transformer is a complete and fundamental solution to reduce both CMV and leakage current by simulation and field measurement results. On the other hand, this study found the shape and period of the waveform of CMV and leakage current are completely identical, and prove that these two are produced by the same cause and the leakage current was also demonstrated to be lowered when the CMV was lowered. On the other hand, based on the analyzing the path of the leakage current flow in the grounded system and the non-ground systems, this study found that it was reasonable to measure CMV and leakage current on the DC side of PCS, and this was proved by P-Sim simulation and field experiments.

오제민(Je Min Oh) ; 방태경(Tae-Kyoung Bang) ; 신경훈(Kyung-Hun Shin) ; 최장영(Jang-Young Choi) ; 조한욱(Han-Wook Cho)

This paper presents random walk and simplex optimization algorithm on an optimal design of V-shape interior permanent synchronous motor (V-shape IPMSM). The IPMSM can easily generates a cogging torque because of change in magnetic circuit by interaction between permanent magnets and stator slots. Therefore minimization of the cogging torque, which generates vibration and noise, is an important factor in design of IPMSM. This paper proposes the optimal shape design of V-shape IPMSM using random walk and simplex method for minimizing cogging torque.

김철호(Chul-Ho Kim) ; 이준호(June-Ho Lee)

As the demand for HVDC increases, interest in the accumulation of space charges under DC electric field is increasing. In addition, interest in eco-friendly insulating materials that can replace XLPE, an existing power cable insulating materials, is steadily increasing. Therefore, in this study, we prepared XLPE, eco-friendly insulating materials and sample in which nano-particle(h-BN: hexagonal boron nitride) were added to eco-friendly insulating material. The space charge distribution and conductivity were measured and analyzed for the prepared samples, and the space charge and conductivity characteristics of each sample were compared. As results, in space charge characteristics, eco-friendly insulating materials showed relatively excellent characteristics compared to XLPE. However, it was observed that the space charge characteristics of sample added with h-BN was not good compared to samples not added. In the conduction characteristics, eco-friendly materials showed excellent characteristics compared to XLPE.

임종국(Jong-Kook Lim) ; 윤희중(Hee-Jung Yoon)

Recently, the manufacturing requirements of Rolling Stock are required to diagnose and manage the condition of major safety devices (doors, brake, signals, etc.) to suggest a plan for efficient maintenance. Based on these backgrounds and technology trends, research on Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) and Prognostic Health Management (PHM) has been actively conducted in recent years. In this study, the current value of the engine drive motor of the door of a Rolling Stock is measured by dividing it into four classes (normal open/abnormal open, normally closed/abnormally closed), and statistically analyzed 13 factors of time domain statistics based on time domain statistics. After verifying the significance, suitable Features were extracted. Based on the machine learning theory, a predictive algorithm that can classify the extracted Features was selected, and the accuracy was verified against the actual measured data class with the selected prognosis algorithm.

이신애(Sin-ae Lee) ; 조현종(Hyun-chong Cho)

Gastric cancer is the largest percentage of cancer cases in Korea. A precise way to find the occurrence of gastrointestinal diseases is through gastroscopy by a trained diagnostic physician. Computer-aided diagnosis (CADx) system helps improve the reliability and speed of diagnosis. The CADx system has developed with deep learning, which is data dependent. However, medical image data is labor intensive and time consuming, making it difficult for large data sets to be formed. To solve this problem, it is important to apply augmentation techniques. In this paper, we propose an augmentation method which is suitable for the data. A basic classification model was made by leaning a data set consisting of the original images. Each of the 14 augment technique-applied data set was input into the generated model and the f1-score values were compared. The f1-score of the highest performance among the proposed methods, was 0.9221, with an increase of about 0.085.

김주희(Ju-Hee Kim) ; 이석필(Seok-Pil Lee)

Many studies have been conducted emotion recognition using audio signals as it is easy to collect. However, the accuracy is lower than other methods such as using facial images or video signals. In this paper, we propose an emotion recognition using speech signals and text simultaneously to achieve better performance. For training, we generate 43 feature vectors like mfcc, spectral features and harmonic features from audio data. Also 256 embedding vectors is extracted from text data using pretrained Tacotron encoder. Feature vectors and text embedding vectors are fed into each LSTM layer and fully connected layer which produces a probability distribution over predicted output classes. By combining the average of both results, the data is assigned to one of four emotion categories : anger, happiness, sadness, neutrality. Our proposed model outperforms previous state-of-the-art methods when they use Korean emotional speech dataset.

김종관(Jongkwan Kim) ; 장민해(Minhae Jang) ; 임선아(Suna Lim) ; 김명수(Myongsoo Kim)

As internet technology develops and there are increases in cyber activities such as e-mail, SNS and e-commerce, cyber security is being emphasized as one of the most important social issues. In particular, spam mail, SMS phishing and other malicious URLs to breach personal data are inflicting financial and physical damage. This paper proposes a malicious URL detection method based on search volume from internet search engines to resolve such problem. The search volume-based malicious URL detection method uses portal search engines to automatically search URLs linked to emails, text messages and SNS to determine whether or not they can be categorized as malicious URLs according to the volume of the search result. This method allows normal URLs, but will protect to abnormal behaviors.

류서현(Seo-Hyeon Ryu) ; 박준영(Joon-Young Park) ; 김석태(Seok-Tae Kim) ; 김태원(Tae-Won Kim) ; 고병성(Byung-Sung Ko) ; 우정욱(Jung-Wook Woo)

In this paper, a new automatic camera gimbal system was developed to efficiently inspect transmission lines using a drone. As drone technology has advanced tremendously over the past few years, drones are being used to replace dangerous tasks in the electric power industry. Especially, Korea Electric Power Corporation has used the automatic drone inspection system developed for power transmission lines, but while this drone system flies on autopilot, its camera gimbal is still controlled manually. Moreover, the camera gimbal control in the field was often interrupted by electromagnetic interference from ultra-high voltage power lines. To overcome this problem, we developed the new camera gimbal system that can automatically shoot power facilities on the basis of Deep Learning. Its control algorithms mainly consists of a photographing algorithm for a steel tower, a photographing algorithm for power conductors, and an automatic drone landing algorithm. This fully automated system is expected to greatly increase the task efficiency and accuracy for transmission line inspection without any kinds control efforts.

Off-Policy 학습 기반 LQR을 이용한 파라미터 추정 및 전력 시스템 동기 탈조 판별을 위한 외란 관측기 설계 Parameter Estimation Using an Off-Policy Learning-Based LQR and Its Application to a Disturbance Observer Design for Out of Step Detection of a Power System

양선직(Sun Jick Yang) ; 장수영(Su Young Jang) ; 손영익(Young Ik Son)

In this paper, a reinforcement learning-based Linear Quadratic Regulator(LQR) design method has been adopted to identify unknown system parameters. The off-policy learning-based LQR can obtain the optimal control gain through an iteration technique known as policy iteration, without using the system model parameters. Augmented states, using the system output integration, can help to alleviate the rank condition on the proposed parameter estimation method. Increasing the system model information accuracy allows the disturbance observers to detect various system faults with the least amount of estimation error. The line fault detection ability of a power system for out-of-step prediction has been studied by applying the proposed parameter estimation scheme to a single machine infinite bus system. Simulation results show that both the system parameters and the external disturbance can be successfully estimated through the proposed method

As robots replace human work, interests in robot teaching are increasing to implement various tasks and to quickly generate task motions. However, there are some difficulties to apply into articulated robots with multiple degrees of freedom. To solve this problem, we developed a virtual environment of robot manipulator for imitation learning and proposed a twin delayed deterministic generative adversarial imitation learning method which provides the imitation of expert’s demonstration. The developed virtual environment provides an efficient way to gather expert’s demonstration data. The learning performance of the proposed method was verified by comparing it with the conventional one based on the virtual environment for robot manipulators.

이정남(Jeong-nam Lee) ; 조현종(Hyun-chong Cho)

In Korea, colon cancer is increasing due to westernized eating habits. Colonoscopy is being used to reduce deaths from colon cancer and studies of CADx(Computer-aided Diagnosis) are being developed to improve accuracy. Due to the nature of medical data, it was difficult to collect a lot of data, so data was increased 25 times using AutoAugment’s CIFAR-10 policy, and YOLOv4(You Only Look Once), a real-time object detection algorithm, was used to detect lesions. A new object detection algorithm, YOLOv4, use new eight features such as Weighted-Residual-Connections, Cross-Stage-Partial-connections, Cross mini-Batch Normalization and SelfAdversarial-Training. The performance of augmented data had a maximum mAP of 27.44 higher than the original data. The average IoU(Intersection over Union) was 11.44 higher than the original data. When the IoU value is 0.5, the F1-scores of the original data and the augmented data are 0.9 and 0.97 respectively.

DQN 및 DDQN을 이용한 트레이딩 봇 구현 및 성능 비교 Trading Bot Implementation and Performance Comparison Using DQN and DDQN

김민태(Min Tae Kim) ; 김병욱(Byung Wook Kim)

This study addresses a reinforcement learning(RL)-based trading bot that can automatically trade stocks using stock trading data and various indicators. To construct the training data, we used daily basic stock price and technical auxiliary indicator, and input them as state variables to conduct trading actions. By comparing the holding assets and stock prices, a Buy agent that predicts the value of buy/hold behavior or a Sell agent that predicts the value of sell/hold behavior is selected for trading action. For the performance analysis, the returns according to the stock price trend during the training and test period are shown for Deep Q-Network (DQN) and Double DQN (DDQN). Experiments showed that both algorithms for test data showed an increase in assets over the long term and follows the trend of the stock price. While DQN reacts sensitively to changes in stock prices, DDQN reacts relatively monotonically, and thus DDQN can guarantee the increase in assets and stable trading.

딥 러닝을 이용한 새로운 다중 객체 구별 방법 A Novel Multi-Object Distinction Method using deep learning

오세운(Se-woon Oh) ; 이창현(Chang-hyun Lee) ; 김선목(Sun-mok Kim) ; 임덕진(Deok-jin Lim) ; 이기백(Ki-beak Lee)

In this paper, we propose a novel multi-object distinction method with class-agnostic object detection and class retreival. Multi-object distinction is usually divided into the processes of detecting and classifying an object. Since it is common for industrial applications to add new kinds of objects to be recognized, it is inefficient to re-train the system every time the new object is added. Thus, the propose method employs two deep learning models to solve this problem. 1) Class agnostic object detection model to predict the bounding boxes regardless of the classes of objects and 2) Class retrieval model to determine the classes of the objects. The experimental results show that the proposed method successfully detects and classifies the both experienced and inexperienced objects: the final classification accuracy for 15 learned objects was 98.0%, and for the other 30 new objects that had not been learned. the accuracy was 87.7% on average.

깊은 합성곱 신경망 모델에 따른 유방 초음파 영상 분류 성능 비교 Comparison of deep convolutional neural networks for classification of breast ultrasound images

박주영(Juyoung Park) ; 김이삭(Yisak Kim) ; 유창완(Chang-Wan Ryu) ; 김형석(Hyungsuk Kim)

Breast ultrasound has been widely utilized for classifying tumors into benignancy and malignancy. The limitations of traditional breast ultrasound are the handcrafted features obtained by well-trained sonographers and subjective decision according to different individual experiences. Recently, CNN-based deep learning techniques have exhibited better performance in medical images. However, most research for deep learning in medical ultrasound adopts CNN models developed for natural images due to the lack of common standard and dataset. In this paper, we compare six DCNN models which exhibit good performance for natural images - VGGNet, ResNet, InceptionNet, DenseNet, and EfficientNet. Our classification results demonstrate that CNN models of relatively lower performance on natural images show better performance on gray-scale ultrasound images and further study of CNN models are needed focusing on the features of medical images.

In this paper, we propose a new hand gesture recognition strategy using network-based transfer learning(TL) and reference voluntary contraction(RVC) normalization. The structure and parameters of the state-of-the-art deep learning models such as VGG19, ResNet152 and DenseNet121 for source task of image classification are reused in the target task of hand gesture recognition based on surface electromyography(EMG) signals. To mitigate the difficulty in handling the subject-dependent EMG signals, the RVC normalization is adopted in the signal pre-processing. The time-domain EMG signals are transformed into 2-D images for TL networks. The experimental results verify the validity of the proposed method in terms of recognition accuracy. The TL using VGG19, RVC normalization and gray image transformation shows 99.78% accuracy for the data from 15 participants performing 20 different gestures.

This paper deals with the design problem of an extended target tracking filter using automotive 2D LIDAR. As a practical way to reduce the dimensionality of the LIDAR point cloud data and to extract an important target feature from it, the Hough transform is applied and the corresponding measurement equation is modeled. It is well-known that the pattern of the LIDAR point cloud varies with the relative geometry due to occlusion, which may leads the severe performance degradation in target tracking. To cope with this problem, a multiple model filter is designed by considering the measurement acquisition hypotheses on the target feature. Through the experiments in real-driving condition, the superior performance of the proposed filter over the existing method is demonstrated.

버그 알고리즘을 이용한 청진음의 음향학적 분석법에 관한 연구 A Study on Acoustic Analysis of Stethoscope Signal using the Burg Algorithm

김동준(Dong-Jun Kim)

This study describes an acoustic analysis method of stethoscope signal using the Burg algorithm which is a kind of linear prediction, considering the heartsound production mechanism is linear and can be modelled by an inverse filter of the all-pole model. For this study, normal and heart diseased stethoscope sounds were collected in the pediatrics of an university hospital. The collected signals were preprocessed by noise filtering and analyzed by the Burg algorithm, a kind of linear prediction. The AR spectra and the formants for the heartsounds for the normal and the diseased children are estimated and the results are compared. The spectra showed outstanding differences in morphology and formant frequencies between the normal and the diseased children. Normal children showed relatively low frequency of F1(the first formant) and small negative slope from F1. VSD children revealed stiff slope change around F1 to F3. Spectra of ASD children is similar with the normal case, but have negative values of F3. F1-F2 difference of the functional murmur children were relatively large.

One of the areas of steady interest in modern society is health. In addition, in order to keep the individual’s health at its best, the healthcare device market is undergoing many trials and developments. The latest threat to COVID-19 is a major threat to heart disease patients, and it is time for continuous monitoring technology to be needed to prevent it. In particular, PPG sensor technology is relatively commercialized amid various attempts to analyze cardiovascular conditions. In general, we prefer to measure signals from fingers and wrists, which have a stable advantage in obtaining signals. However, there are cases where it is not suitable for the user’s lifestyle, which creates inconvenience. In this study, signal is measured from the ankles to minimize the inconvenience that users may experience when wearing them. And IIR Filter is applied for stable signal acquisition and analysis. Phase Delay, one of the disadvantages of this, is an unnecessary factor in real-time analysis. Zero Phase Filter is designed and applied to the system for further signal analysis. The results of the study compared three types of raw data, IIR Filter data, and Zero Phase Filter data acquired from PPG sensors, and were able to confirm the tendency of Zero Phase Filter data to match the peak points of raw data relative to IIR Filter data. The above results indicate the tendency for in-depth analysis of signals free from Phase Delay in the real-time acquisition of ankle PPG signals. Through peak-to-peak analysis and deep development of algorithms, various applications are expected to be possible by designing stress estimation and fatigue estimation systems that do not constrain users’ upper bodies.

In korea, the electric facilities and communication equipments have been built with a grounding construction in order to protect human life from electrical shock of lightning/ surge voltage and secure the performance of electric appliances and rapid emit an impulsive current into underground for safety. Also, the value of grounding resistance of the electric facilities was legislated to certain resistance value in korea and it should be perform the reinforcement construction for maintaining less than the specified value. But it’s very hard to carry out the grounding reinforcement construction without any damage on the seven underground utilities scattered around underground of downtown area. Futhermore, although it is inevitable to use additional resistance reducing materials for qualifying the value, but the porosity of ground and resultant loss of reducer make that uncontrollable. Therefore we had to seek the process of minimizing the economic loss and basically preventing the national property loss, negligent accident, futhermore, appling the method of cost reduction as well.

This is a study on the determination of optimal compression strength of jumper sleeves for distribution overhead wires using aluminum conductor. In order to determine the optimal compression strength, problems of the existing oiled compression standards were reviewed, and conductor resistance, porosity, tensile strength tests and statistical analysis were conducted to propose new standards. As a result of the test, it was found that 10[tonf], which is less than the current 13[tonf] compressive strength applied to aluminum conductors, is the optimal compression strength. Therefore, in this paper, We propose to reduce the standard for applying the compressive strength of jumpers from 13[tonf] to 10[tonf] or more, which is a place where tension does not occur like jumper sleeve.
