Actually I'm trying to generate wind direction and velocity using sentinel

1 images.

But I'm having some problems.

After processing the imaging, using Sentinel 1 toolbox (SNAP), we have been

obtained this kind of image (see file attached). In this image appears

wind direction (with ambiguity) and velocity in m/s.

Where I tried to export these parameters those that are exported are in

the .txt file attached.

My questions is: 1 - How to extract the wind velocity from these image and

export it in as made in .txt file attached ?

2 - How eliminate the ambiguity in order to obtain the

wind direction?

Do you know anybody that is working in these theme using sentinel 1 data

in order to help me.

With my best regards,

Hello All,

I am working on HVDC VSC converters in DIgSILENT power factory. I have developed the grid and the DSL models of generators, controls and the VSC converters. But, when I run the simulation, it says something on inner-loop iteration reached for some models. I want to know how to resolve this error in DIgSILENT power factory. I have asked this question in the customer portal, but it didn't help me much. They suggested me what I already knew and have tried. I can send the pfd file if required.

I appreciate your help.

Thank You

What is the process to carry out power simulation of any benchmark program using McPat simulator. How to get counter values need to be configured in xml file which is needs to be provided as input to simulator and how to get ptrace fie as output.

I have done a theoretical analysis to find out the rating power that need to be produced from PV panels depends on the datasheet given below at 7222W.

I have calculated the sizing design of PV arrays for 4 panels connected in series and 7 in parallel to get total at 28 panels at rate 120V and 60A that need to meet the demand.

Note Xsys=0.09 ohm at 25KA current fault level from IET datasheet.

the issue is how to implement this demand of power from the PV using matalb codes or simulink by demonstrates parallel and series connection of solar panels to get the rate at 120V and 60A?

the attached files shows schmatic of proposed system

I would like to try the use of the SciLab (https://www.scilab.org/) in the simulation of electric power networks, and systems. Based on your experience, is it a worth for the use in the mentioned application? Please compare with alternatives, such as the MATLAB.

coil wound alternators are used everywhere to Generate electric power in all kind generating stations.Though it is demonstrated by vande graf (static generator) it is is not popular in power generation. Let me know the limitations and constraints if any

Hi,

I am trying to model a system in PSS/e for transient stability studies. The network I am trying to model has a total demand of 1300 MW during peak season and it is interconnected to two other countries which have total capacity of 10 GW and 2 GW. I've short circuit MVA for the two interconnections, using which I've calculated the Zsource of the machines.

I've two questions:

1. Would I be using the short circuit MVA to represent the machine base or total capacity of the each machine for the studies?

2. Which generator and governor model to use to represent the inter-connection? Also, what would be the inertia (H) of the machine for transient stability studies?

Thanks for the help.

This parameter is used for recognition of islanded networks.

Dear All

My project is to optimize the location of statcom to improve the voltage stability in a given system data using genetic algorithm.First i did a nrlf and later manually optimized the bus at which voltage is below rated value by integrating statcom into nrlf at that particular bus.Now i am trying to optimize it using genetic algorithm.Iam trying to use the 'optimtool' present in matlab to do this.For this i need to write the fitness function.I have a little idea on how to do it (as i am trying to maintain voltage stable then minimizing the deviation in it should come under the fitness function) but i am unable to relaize how to write it.So i would love it if any one can help me with this issue.Thank you in advance

How can we get the load cost vector? The elements of this vector represent the independent load values or costs of the corresponding bus. The unit of the cost is $/kW or $/MW

We have some electrical data like line length,R/X ratio of lines,P and Q of loads on GIS software for a real distribution network.

How can i use these data in Digsilent?

Actually I work on the problem of optimization of a microgrid, the optimization should take into consideration the whole power flows in the power system to satisfy the power balance with respect to conversion efficiency and all other imposed constraints.

So I have a lot of equations and formulations, then I wish to know the best method to simulate and to test this system?

- What's the best solver based on C++ or Java library that I can use it inside simulink model using block or s-function to optimise the powers flow by mixed integer linear programming of my power system and the way to do it?

I notice that I have a sumilink model of the power system simulated using real component of Matlab library, I mean for example to simulate PV arrays I used real component not formulations, so it's possible to use this solver embedded in simulink model to get results?

Finally, I searched a lot of a solver that I can call it easily in matlab simulink and use it inside a s-function using C++ code and also the best way to simulate this system directly in the simulink model without using command line because that make the system very hard regarding that the documentation and sources are very rare?

Please I don't ask for publications with the same problems because I lost a lot of time so I look for a direct sources and solutions?

Thanks.

I am working with rotor angle stability analysis based on matlab program. I need to validate my program with datas obtained from transient stability analysis done in ieee bus system developed in etap. How could i do it

Literature says the data is available in "P. M. Anderson and A. A. Fouad, Power System Control and Stability" (Revised Printing). New York: IEEE Press, 1994. Can someone provide me this data?

I am working on grid vulnerability analysis and I need to run power flow for a grid with high penetration of wind generation. I was wondering what is the most convenient way of modeling wind farms. Can I model them as PQ buses with negative P (negative load)?

Solution should be based on a steady state network using nodal voltage method.

Thank you.

How does PSO represent FACTS bus number and its sizing. Is it possible to embede PSO matlab codes with PSAT power flow rountine?

Hello All,

I spent all morning searching for the error solution on google, so Mathworks and here. I attempted every potential solution I could find: delays, solver changes, saturation, tolerance. I attached the Simulink Power Systems model I have for the verification of my masters research.

While I noticed it originally I dismissed it as I thought Simulink was programmed better with the initial value set, I have narrowed the error down to the voltage measurement origination from the battery model, both the internal and external voltmeter.

Does anyone on here have any idea what settings are required to circumvent this simulation error? Thanks in advance.

I was doing research on capacity credits of renewable energies. I am looking for databases that might contain High resolution data with hourly/daily for Loss of load probabilities and other metrics that are helpful to calculate capacity credits about a farm?

I have the paper which I have attached herewith.No matter whether the model is in simulink, labview, etap or any other software.Thanks in advance.

The tools should be able to simulate the transient process after disturbances. Besides, it can also simulate the long-term variation of the power load.

Hi respected fellows, I am working on ring connected distribution system, My question is how can I isolate the faulty portion from the remaining network so, that it will not interrupt the supply to other part. Up till now when I put fault in the system it will shut down the whole system.

i want to regenerate behaviour of constant PQ-loads from Fig.5.a from chapter-2 of this book(Wind Farm – Impact in Power System and Alternatives to Improve the Integration);Despite much effort i cant regenerate that.please guid me.

I want to analyse the integrated power system (having solar as one of the source of power ) using transient simulation software (PSCAD). Is it worth to use the same or should i use different software ?

I am working on resistive switching based memory devices. In my devices, I get off current in the range of 1E-5-1E-4 which is very high. It deteriorates the Ion/Ioff and the hence the device performance. For a memory device, the Ion/Ioff ratio is very important factor. Please suggest me how can I reduce the off current. I research papers I have seen off currents of upto 1E-9.

Recently, I have been using MATLAB to simulate a hybrid renewable energy system (Wind and GCPV plant). Is there any reliable, fast and powerful software that could be used to simulate power systems! DC link power levels! AC/DC Sides of hybrid renewable energy systems!

Cheers.

Actually, there are a model of a turbine in Prabha Kundur book´s only with the effect of the injector but I need a model with the effect of the deflector, too. I have to simulate the turbine in POWERFACTORY of DIgSILENT.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create some simple user defined models (UDM) in psat. I am using psat 2.1.9 and tried to create UDM from component browser in PSAT GUI. However, I am unable to define anything like buse or state variable on a new model. I then tried to modify the existing examples and still was unable to do it.

Can anyone help me with it?

Cheers

Hello:

I am getting mixed results for the power conversion efficiency measurements in my undergraduate research despite this being a routine procedure, so I would greatly appreciate feedback on the process and calculations I am using.

1) I apply a voltage (mV) in parallel with the solar cell while measuring the current response (mA) using a Wavetech multimeter in series with the cell. This is done for both forward and reverse bias (from -900mV to 900 mV). The cell is illuminated by a solar simulator at 1 Sun (1 000 000 mW/m

^{2}) intensity.2) I calculate power (mW) at each voltage by P = I(mA) * V(mV) and select the highest value in the 1st quadrant (P

_{max}).3) I calculate power conversion efficiency as follows:

PCE (%) = (100% * P

_{max})/(1 000 000 mW/m^{2}* cell active area (m^{2})Attached is a cartoon of the circuit I'm using.

Thank you for you patience.

Hi,

I am simulating (by simulink) a distribution network feeder which consists of PV generation site and load. my simulation is too long at time domain so it requires a phasor simulation type (in the configuration parameter of the powergui). However, some of the elements in the model require a discrete simulation type. Running the simulation for the feeder model using a phasor simulation type gave me an error.

May I know how do I go about solving this problem? Any help or advice would really be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

I am simulating a case of vanadium redox flow batteries with carbon felts of thickness3.8mm at 50 percent SOC.Now I am getting an overpotential across the thickness of negative electrode which increases near the membrane.Can anyone explain why this scenario happens?

I am simulating sensorless control of PMSM. I am giving constant theta at the starting time but my motor is not starting, what could be possible reasons?

For a industry research project we can get distribution grid models which they have modeled in PowerFactory. We would like to work with the models in OpenDSS and Matlab and of course would like to spare remodeling the grids in the software. I can't find anything online to achieve this.

Has anybody achieved exporting from PowerFactory to OpenDSS? Maybe even a self written script to achieve this which he/she is willing to share?

Kind regards,

Marcus

I am trying to catch the electrolyser, storage and compressor cost even from quote but for a bit large case and also if I move from size to bigger size how I can scale the cost based on the big size?

Hello,

This question pertains to Matlab simulation. I will be grateful in case anyone knows the answer.

Attached .docx file is a Simulink circuit of a inverter simulation. In order to implement close loop control of inverter, I first make it work as rectifier and trying to do its PLL and current control loop implementation. In this quest, I am applying a voltage through a grid and modify it to another level by transformer. I am not able to figure out that after putting any Kp and Ki values, why does the input current waveform shape is not symmetrical? Can any one help me to find the problem? In another file, I have attached Voltage (Upper) and current (Down) waveform taken from grid. The corresponding scope is marked in .docx file.

**I'm designing a 5-level diode-clamped inverter and I have met the following issue: as time passes (0 to 0.5 second simulation) I find a crossover distortion in the output sine wave (filtered) that**

*Hello everyone.***can be mitigated**by increasing the DC capacitors (those which divide the Vdc input into Vdc/2).

To prove this, I have simulated the inverter replacing these capacitors with ideal DC sources (Vdc/2 rated each one) and the crossover distortion dissapears.

As far as I understand, this means that I should have large capacitors in my real circuit, the question is: how to calculate them analytically?

First, all the input variables of function are in the workspace. Then, I enter the function in the command window like this and I can get the results:

However, directly running in the m file , that will cause a fault:

So, what's wrong and how can I run the m file correctly?

For our project, we need to explore the possibility of developing functional blocks for load flow, load forecasting, optimal power flow, etc. in Simulink, without using Matlab code so that the functions can be easily converted as function blocks to hardware using other software. Is it feasible?

Hi

I am not electrical engineering student but currently I am looking to measure the pulse width( in fs) of received signal. Given pulse width 10^-13 s, with power level let 1Watt of transmitted pulse, when this pulse is transmitted on channel it is distorted by noise model N, and weakened by attenuation A.

what will be the pulse width of received signal. I can analytically solve it for received signal power/energy distribution (pdf of received signal energy) but I can not calculate the actual received pulse and its pulse width.

I currently use MS visio for drawing Power Electronics circuits and looking for a better one. Any one who can guide me, Please.

Dear All,

This is a real world problem:

There is a PV plant which covers 10km x 2km. In the center of the plant, there is a weather station, which measures GHI / POA irradiations and reference cell temperature.

I am going to simulate a PV cell model for each string in the plant. As we can see, only weather station data are available.

Thus, is it possible to estimate irradiation / cell temperatures in every location of 10km x 2km area based on the weather station measurements?

There are companies which can provide 15m x 15m resolution irradiation / cell temperature, how can they achieve it ?

Thanks.

Hello Researchers,

I need high resolution say, a measurement interval of 15 mins - 30 mins solar radiation data for my research. Most of the hourly data archives have average hourly solar radiation which don't accommodate the variation in horizontal direct beam radiation (looks like a smooth deterministic curve). I need to see the deviations in radiation due to cloud and other obstructions if any.

Please comments your suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Hi my friends I need to regulate and control efficiently the battery charge with the output voltage and current than flow from the buck converter, can anyone give me some ideas in order to improve it?.

Earthing is return path. If my source is isolated from earth we don't need earthing. Then why we use earthing based system?

How can we correct the power factor of two switch non-inverting buck-boost converter? because in boost mode it is easily corrected but in buck mode input current is discontinuous ?

Would like to know how to model a constant power load in SImulink/Simpowersystems. I'd like to be able to simply change the power requirement of the load which is being powered by two boost converters. Any help would be great, thanks.

Any system example on which LINKNET is applied will also work.
