  • A New Preconditioner Design Based on Spectral Division for Power Flow Analysis 

    Solution of large sparse linear systems is the most lime consuming part in many power system simulations. Direct solvers based on LU factorization although robust are known to have limited satiability on parallel platforms. Thus. Krylov subspace based iterative methods (i.e. Conjugate Gradient method Generalized Minimal Residuals (GMRES) method) can be used as alternatives. To achieve competitive performance and robustness however the Krylov subspace methods need a suitable preconditioner. In this ...

  • Branch outage simulation based contingency screening by gravitational search algorithm 

    Power systems contingency analysis is an important issue for electric power system operators. This paper performs branch outage simulation based contingency screening using a bounded network approach. Local constrained optimization problem representing the branch outage phenomena is solved by the gravitational search algorithm. The proposed method is applied to IEEE 14 30 57 and 118 Bus Test systems and its performance from the point of capturing violations is evaluated. In addition false alarms ...

  • Distributed Memory Parallel Transient Stability Analysis on a PC Cluster with Ethernet 

    On-line transient stability analysis is a necessity for real-time power system control and security. Parallel processing is a natural technology for achieving real-time solution performance. This paper presents a parallel-in-space algorithm based on a multi-level partitioning scheme in a distributed memory cluster environment. The main aim of the research is to decrease the wallclock time of transient stability analysis of large scale power systems by leveraging open source software and commodity ...

    Authors:Yetkin, E. Fatih; Daǧ, Hasan
    Publisher and Date:(Amer Inst Physics, 2011)
    Several areas of applications such as model order reduction preconditioner design and eigenvalue problems for spectral projectors can be found in the literature. In this paper a fast and sparsity preserving approach for computing the spectral projectors is proposed. The suggested approach can be used in both Newton iteration and integral representation based methods. A comparison of the original and the suggested approaches in terms of computation time sparsity preservation and accuracy is presented ...

  • Towards Faster Branch Outage Simulations Using Simulated Annealing and Parallel Programming 

    Authors:Ceylan, Oǧuzhan; Ozdemir, Aydogan; Daǧ, Hasan
    Publisher and Date:(IEEE, 2009)
    Contingency studies such as branch outage and generator outage are among important studies of energy management centers operations. Branch outage modeling on the other hand is one of the basic steps of post-outage state estimation of an electrical power system. Real time implementation of the problem brings the necessity of using high speed methods while providing a reasonable accuracy. This paper presents simulated annealing based solution of the branch outage event which is formulated as a local ...
