METHOD, A SYSTEM, A SERVER, A CONTROL ELEMENT, A COMPUTER PROGRAM AND A COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT FOR OPERATING A POWER GRID HAVING DECENTRALIZED CONTROL ELEMENTS
Abstract
An exemplary method and apparatus are provided for operating a power grid that has decentralized control elements. The decentralized control elements are adapted to interact with each other, in particular by communication. At least a part of the power grid, a control element or the interaction between control elements, in particular the communication between control elements, is monitored. When a problem in at least a part of the power grid, the control element or the interaction between control elements, in particular a communication breakdown, is detected, a control element affected by the problem is triggered to work autonomously.

A collaborative system that includes automatic monitoring and management of reflector/servers and clients. The reflectors are in a logical cluster although their physical locations may be anywhere in the world. Reflector to reflector performance and status is continuously monitored. If a reflector-to-reflector link goes down or is underperforming, the reflector cluster is rerouted to provide desired performance. Clients are monitored and provide information via the network to register/management...

Systems and methods for monitoring power generation are provided. For example, such a system may include a gas turbine, an electrical generator coupled to the drive, a controller coupled to the gas turbine, and a compliance monitor. The gas turbine may generate a torque, and the electrical generator may provide power to a power grid based on the torque. The controller may cause the gas turbine to vary the torque in response to a frequency disturbance occurring on the power grid. The compliance m...

A method and apparatus for determining to which battery cell in a string of battery cells between a pair of busses a test instrument is connected. Knowing the average voltage of the battery cells in the string, the voltage from one of the busses to the side furthest from that bus of the cell of interest is measured, and that measured voltage is compared with a voltage range calculated as a multiple of the average voltage.

Distributed controllers in an electric power delivery system obtain measurements and equipment status, calculate derived values, and determine Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) state, and share such with other distributed controllers and coordination controllers. Distributed controllers and coordination controllers further refine measurements, equipment status, derived values, and IED state. Control of the electric power delivery system is coordinated among the distributed controllers and the ...
