1. Rengarajan, Janarthanan. Operated device estimation framework.

Degree: 2009, Texas A&M University

Protective device estimation is a challenging task because there are numerous protective devices present in a typical distribution system. Among various protective devices, auto-reclosers and fuses are the main overcurrent protection on distribution systems. Operation of a protective device in response to a particular fault condition depends upon the protective device?s operating behavior and coordination of various such protective devices. This thesis presents the design and implementation of a protective device estimation algorithm which helps in identifying which protective devices have operated to clear a short circuit condition. The algorithm uses manufacturer?s device details, power quality data measured from substation monitoring devices and power system event features estimated using existing DFA algorithms. The proposed technique can be used to evaluate coordination of these protective devices and helps in locating a fault in a distribution system feeder. This approach is independent of feeder topology and could be readily used for any distribution system. The effectiveness of this algorithm is verified by simulated and actual test data. Suggestions are included for future research and application by electric utilities.

2. Akinnikawe, Ayorinde. Investigation of broadband over power line channel capacity of shipboard power system cables for ship communications networks.

Degree: 2009, Texas A&M University

Broadband over Power Line (BPL) technology has garnered significant attention lately due to recent advancements in solid state technologies and channel coding schemes. The successful application of BPL technology for in-home automation and networking has led to suggestions of applying BPL in other systems including ships. The application of BPL technology using the Shipboard Power System (SPS) as a potential communications network for ship automation systems has been proposed, to achieve recent U.S. Navy ship management concepts geared toward reducing ship manning while improving operational efficiency. This thesis presents an analytical model developed to examine the channel response characteristics and estimated throughput capacity of SPS cables. The work used a multiconductor transmission line theory based approach to model the channel response of SPS distribution lines and estimated the channel throughput capacity using a ?water-filling? communication technique. This work found that BPL using the SPS holds a strong potential for use as a communications network for ship communication systems. Advisors/Committee Members: Butler-Purry, Karen L.

3. Zhu, Hezi. Real-Time Arc Fault Detection in Photovoltaic DC Systems.

Degree: MS, Electrical Engineering, 2016, Texas A&M University

Arc fault is a significant reliability and safety concern for photovoltaic (PV) direct current (DC) electrical systems. Failure to detect an arc fault can lead to system failure, property loss, or even bodily injury. Of the numerous methods that have been proposed, the most common fast fourier transform (FFT) has significant fundamental limitations that stem from the fact that arcs do not conform to the inherent assumptions upon which the FFT is mathematically based. This can lead to the non-detection of arcing events, or the false-detection which is potentially just as bad as it leads to a reduced confidence in the technology and a better technology solution is needed. The goal of this research is to design and demonstrate a real-time, embedded system implementation of a new technique-wavelet transform (WT) for arc fault detection. In order to analyze arc of various power level under the intrinsic high frequency noise feature of PV systems, arc signals are synthesized with different Arc-Signal-Noise-Ratio (ASNR) and a high fidelity testbed is constructed for the reproduction of arc signals. With threshold setting simulated on MATLAB, WT detection technique using ratio of the power increment is realized on the commercial arc detection product RD-195. Real-time arc fault detection is conducted for both synthesized arc signal and real PV arc signal, and the detection result of the WT algorithm is compared against the FFT algorithm. From the experiment and analysis, the rationality of WT based detection technique for DC arc detection application is validated and the superiority compared to FFT technique is demonstrated.
