The automotive power system is being increasingly expanded by adding high-dynamic power electronics. These components can potentially cause malfunction or failure of safety-relevant low-voltage components. The susceptibility to disturbances is often reduced by usage of oversized passive input...

Rational models can be a cause of unstable time domain simulations if they are non-passive. One commonly applied method for ensuring model passivity is to combine a passivity assessment step with a passivity enforcement step in an iterative loop where the model's residue matrices are updated in each...

A wide-band, frequency-dependent five-terminal model is developed that represents one HVDC transformer unit in the French-English IFA2000 HVDC interconnection. Three such interconnected 1-ph units constitute one 3-ph transformer bank needed in 12-pulse conversion. The model is obtained via...

Research tests were performed on a shell-form autotransformer with a more rigorous impulse test methodology than the traditional recurrent surge oscillograph method. These tests included non-standard terminal connections with open terminals, differing from those tests defined by the international...

This paper presents a novel approach, based on the theory of hyperplanes, for mode identification of linear systems. The proposed approach can operate on either a set of ordinary differential equations (converted to diagonal form, if needed) or a set of partial fractions derived from a synthesized...

Lightning strokes is a main source of transformer failures in distribution systems. The discharge of a lightning current through a distribution transformer's high-voltage (HV) side arresters leads to a ground potential rise of the transformer tank. In the case of a wye-wye connected transformer with...

Passivity is a fundamental requirement for rational models to guarantee stable behavior when included in general time domain simulations. This paper introduces a new variant of one passivity enforcement scheme that is based on residue matrix perturbation. The constrained least squares problem...

White-box detailed transformer models are used by manufacturers for predicting internal overvoltages in transformer windings during the lightning impulse test. One such model is the d-factor model which is based on a lumped-parameter description based on winding discretization with inclusion of...

Wide-area monitoring systems (WAMS) based on phasor measurement units (PMUs) provide the essential information of an electric power system (EPS) in order to face the challenges of generation, operation, and planning. The PMUs are used to obtain the power system ringdown responses. These signals can...
