In order to elaborate analysis of resilience enhancement for distribution system considering microgrids, this paper reviews quantification methods, and measurement criteria. Through this, it was confirmed that the resilience evaluation of the distribution system needs to be performed using not only capability but also number of serviced customers and critical customers. Therefore, this paper proposes the indices for evaluating the recovery quantity, degree, and velocity of system resilience based on the concept reviewed above, and verifies their usefulness. The calculation results of the proposed indices demonstrated that the effect of the distribution system for different fault situations and the resilience enhancement effect of the distribution system through microgrids could be provided quantitatively. Moreover, the proposed indices can be used to analyze the distribution system having mutually different structures as the results are calculated through a unified evaluation standard

Recently, the research on hosting capacity (HC) calculation has become important due to the high interconnection of Renewable Energy Sources (RESs). The existing research on the maximum HC calculation is mainly focused on power quality. However, if the distributed generation is connected based on the HC calculation, there is a risk that the protection system could be affected and create some problems such as Sympathetic Tripping and Protection Blinding (protection device malfunction). Although this problem can be overcome by changing the relay correction value, the problems might still occur due to the limitation of the protection device setting. Therefore to solve this problem, an algorithm that can simultaneously optimize the Time Dial Setting of the overcurrent relay and the HC of the distributed generation without causing a protection system problem is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm was optimized through the most widely used genetic algorithm (GA), and the simulation was done using MATLAB and DigSLINET PowerFactory. The simulation was tested in IEE 37 bus system and from the simulation, the optimal overcurrent relay setting and HC value are obtained.

In modern power systems, there is a possibility that the power system topology may change due to the trip of power lines or distributed generations due to maintenance or fault. Since changes in the topology of the power system affect the magnitude and flow of the fault current, the optimally calculated setting values with the original topology may not provide the correct protection coordination. Therefore, protection method considering the change of topology is required, and in this paper, three protection methods, Protection method with fixed setting values, Adaptive protection method, Protection method with clustering, are introduced. At last, three protection methods are compared with 30 Directional OverCurrent Relays (DOCRs) in IEEE 30 bus test system.

김동연(Dongyeon Kim) ; 김재창(Jae-Chang Kim) ; 곽상신(Sangshin Kwak)

In this paper, the input and output performance of a three-phase pulse width modulation (PWM) rectifier operated by each of three different control techniques based on current control and power control in the grid with harmonics and unbalanced components are compared and analyzed. Regardless of the basic and high-efficiency types, the same current-controlled and power-controlled techniques showed similar performance in the harmonics and unbalanced grid conditions. In all grid conditions with harmonics and unbalanced components, the output voltage by the power-controlled rectifier has a lower ripple value than the output voltage by the current-controlled rectifier. Therefore, in terms of output voltage ripple, it is confirmed that the power-controlled rectifier shows more robust characteristics in harmonics and unbalanced grid condition.

전세봉(Se-Bong Jeon) ; 조성준(Sung-Joon Cho) ; 이교범(Kyo-Beum Lee)

This paper proposes a circulating current suppression method of grid-connected inverters in parallel inverters using serial communication. The grid-connected inverter for large scale photovoltaic generation system consists of multiple modules in parallel based in unit inverter module. The existing method to synchronize PWM signals between inverter modules was implemented by CAN communication with high interrupt priority. However, the high priority of CAN communication can cause deterioration in current control performance due to limited resource of controller. This paper introduces an improved synchronization method of PWM signals with low interrupt priority using time stamp function. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by experimental results with 250kW inverter system

Indium-based transparent conductive thin films are used in various opto-electric devices. In particular, the In2O3:ZnO (IZO) thin film exhibits a high electrical conductivity and high transmittance despite deposition at a low temperature of less than 100℃. IZO thin film has the advantage of being free from damage caused by heat even compared to the existing ITO thin film. In this study, we investigated the requirements for use of TCO films in silicon-based solar cells and the best alternative TCO materials to improve their efficiency. Moreover, we discussed the current status of high-efficiency solar cells using low-temperature TCO films

QoS 레벨 3: 사물인터넷에서 MQTT 프로토콜의 동기식 통신 메카니즘 QoS Level 3: A Synchronous Communication Mechanism in MQTT Protocol for IoT

임예린(YeRin Im) ; 임민규(Mingyu Lim)

In this paper, we propose a new Quality of Service(QoS) Level 3 mechanism of Message Queuing Telemetry Transport(MQTT). It ensures synchronous communication between a publisher and subscribers. In QoS3, a publisher can check message reception of subscribers, while traditional QoS Levels can only check reception between the publisher and the broker asynchronously. After sending a QoS3 message, the publisher waits until it receives a predetermined number of response messages. We evaluated the performance of QoS3 through delay and packet size measurements in various situations. QoS3 was slower than QoS2 because of synchronous communication. However, if interaction with lots of receivers is required, QoS3 was faster than QoS2. For the packet size, QoS3 was bigger than QoS2 because of the additional fields, but the difference was not significant. QoS3 can be effectively used in cases when the publisher needs to perform the following tasks after verifying message reception of subscribers.

배서연(SeoYeon Bae) ; 이언석(Onseok Lee)

The condition of the capillaries is directly affected by inflammatory cells in the disease, resulting in abnormal changes in the occurrence of the disease. Capillary observations can identify not only the current condition of the disease but also the expected diseases, which is of great importance. Existing nail capillary examinations are difficult to obtain optimal images by light reflection by oil and are being conducted by the examiner’s supervision, so there are difficulties in objective diagnosis. Also, it is difficult for busy modern people to visit the hospital because they need expensive equipment. Thus, this study developed an imaging algorithm that produces observational devices that can be simply mounted and used in mobile devices and automatically divides capillaries from the background. This study allows users to obtain images without being constrained by space and to observe capillary conditions quickly through objective and intuitive data.

In this paper, we reviewed these issues and also confirmed the effectiveness of existing protective method utilize machine learning; these are is called an intelligent protective methods and have recently been spotlighted. Finally, a comparative analysis was performed between different protective methods using machine learning

스위치드 릴럭턴스 전동기의 Δ결선, Y결선에 따른 구동 특성 Driving Characteristics according to Δ-Connection and Y-Connection of a Switched Reluctance Motor

정성인(Sung-In Jeong)

A general SRM driving converter uses an asymmetric bridge converter with a structure in which a winding is placed between the upper and lower switches to excite one by one. The asymmetric bridge converter has a structure having two switches and two freewheeling diodes, so it has high efficiency and can control various types, and the current control of each phase is independent, so it is possible to overlap the current of two phases. In addition, even when a fault occurs in one phase, there is no significant effect on the other phase, and the control performance is excellent, such as a relatively low rated voltage of the device. On the other hand, the number of elements is relatively large, the drive circuit is complicated, and it is impossible to modularize the switching element. Therefore, the size of the heat sink for the switching element and the freewheeling diode increases, and thus the production cost increases. It is possible to simplify the AC motor drive system by using IPM(Intelligent Power Module) modularized with six switching elements as a connection structure between AC motors such as induction motors and synchronous motors and generalpurpose inverters with upper and lower switches. Therefore, there is an advantage of being able to reduce the size and structure of a simplified circuit compared to an SRM driving system using an asymmetric bridge converter. In this paper, considering these contents, to apply the general-purpose inverter used in AC motors instead of the asymmetric bridge converter used in generalpurpose SRM driving converters, we will examine the driving characteristics according to the Δ-connection and Y-connection of the SRM connection structure. In addition, we will study the switching control method to apply the universal inverter of AC motor according to the Δ-connection and Y-connection.

초전도 소자에 의한 DC 차단기의 동작 특성 Operating Characteristics of the DC Circuit Breaker by a Superconducting Element

박상용(Sang-Yong Park) ; 최효상(Hyo-Sang Choi)

Superconducting current limiting impedance selection method according to the DC circuit breaker operation characteristics for economic gain with the HVDC hybrid type superconducting DC circuit breaker is attracting attention globally. Due to the development and expansion of renewable energy sources and the development of power semiconductors, HVDC has the advantages of high system transmission efficiency and asynchronous connection. HVDC is currently being developed and commercialized as a pole-to-pole system. As the development of MVDC, LVDC and HVDC progresses, DC grid systems capable of exchanging DC power with each other will be built. A circuit breaker that can increase the reliability of the DC system operation should therefore be developed. HVDC, hybrid, semiconductor and reverse-current-type circuit breakers have been studied as potential circuit breaker options, with many papers being published to demonstrate their respective performances. In this paper, a hybrid superconducting DC circuit breaker was proposed. It consists of a superconducting fault current limiter, a mechanical cut-off contact, an LC circuit and a SA(SA). The rapid rise of the fault current was limited by using the impedance of the superconductor, while the fault current was interrupted by the cut-off operation of the mechanical DC circuit breaker. If the superconducting element shows higher fault current than the breaking capacity level of the DC circuit breaker and the burden on the superconductor will increase. Therefore, efforts were made to confirm the appropriate cut-off capacity level of the DC circuit breaker and the current limiting impedance of the superconductor through experiments. As a result, we proved that the current limiting impedance of the superconductor could be analyzed based on the tripping operation of the DC circuit breaker.

구희석(Hui-Seok Gu) ; 박상용(Sang-Yong Park) ; 최혜원(Hye-Won Choi) ; 최효상(Hyo-Sang Choi)

DC cutoff must be completed within a few ms. Therefore, this paper derives the optimal superconducting wire winding method for efficient current limiting and fast execution of the blocking operation. First, the electromagnetic field characteristics of the superconducting wire according to the winding type were analyzed using the Maxwell program. After that, the EMTDC/PSCAD program was used to analyze the DC blocking performance according to the winding type. Based on the simulation results, as a result of the DC cut-off experiment for each winding type, the spiral type superconductor has a higher resistance rise curve than the helical type, so it is possible to limit the current efficiently by up to 4.01%. In addition, as the magnetic field characteristics are high, the quench of the superconductor operates quickly and the operation time of the circuit breaker is shortened by 0.19 ms, so it can be confirmed that the blocking completion time is also reduced by 0.25 ms.

It is very important to prevent electrical accident, especially the electric shock when it comes to LVDC system as it is widely used in public. Commonly, the mid-point grounding is used in voltage above 200 V (Line-to-Ground) in some countries like USA and Japan. In IEC regulation 60364, there are many theories of grounding in AC and DC system with their own special use. Also, grounding in DC system can be varied as there can be many combination of grounding points including positive/negative electrodes, mid-point wire and mid-point grounding. The purpose of this study is to analyze characteristics of advanced grounding in residence DC system in view of grounding and protection through reviewing the standard IT grounding system, body-current-paths of high-resistance mid-point grounding and impact from electrolytic corrosion of earth electrodes.
