Title: Load Composition Model Workflow (BPA TIP-371 Deliverable 1A)

Abstract

This project is funded under Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Strategic Partnership Project (SPP) 17-005 between BPA and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The project in a BPA Technology Improvement Project (TIP) that builds on and validates the Composite Load Model developed by the Western Electric Coordinating Council's (WECC) Load Modeling Task Force (LMTF). The composite load model is used by the WECC Modeling and Validation Work Group to study the stability and security of the western electricity interconnection. The work includes development of load composition data sets, collection of load disturbance data, and model development and validation. This work supports reliable and economic operation of the power system. This report was produced for Deliverable 1A of the BPA TIP-371 Project entitled \TIP 371: Advancing the Load Composition Model". The deliverable documents the proposed work ow for the Composite Load Model, which provides the basis for the instrumentation, data acquisition, analysis and data dissemination activities addressed by later phases of the project.

  • A cold-flow model is being built to gather information for appropriately designing the venturi and the bottom section of the gasifier to attain the required ash discharge rate in the demonstration plant. Ancillary tasks will investigate the effect of different feed locations and different means of injecting fines. A model is necessary because the operating conditions of the pilot plant gasifier do not permit the type of testing required to meet the above objectives. The pilot plant gasifier has been operated with 2 and 3 in.-diameter venturis. Discharge rates through the venturi appropriate to the feed rates used have beenmore » on the order of 100 lb/hr. The demonstration plant design calls for a total ash agglomerate discharge from each gasifier of approximately 10,000 lb/hr. Scaling up venturi sizes and discharge rates from the pilot plant to the demonstration plant level is a primary motivation for building a cold-flow model. Larger sized venturis will be necessary to handle the larger discharge rates, and the model will be capable of incorporating up to an 8-in.-diameter venturi or other multiple-discharge nozzles. All equipment in the cold model will be capable of operation at 200 psig, which will enable testing to be conducted at the operating pressure of the demonstration plant, i.e., 90 psia.« less
  • The Savannah River Site, located in South Carolina, contains nuclear defense products and nuclear waste byproducts as result of national defense operations dating to the 1950s. The facility has been the subject of a variety of scientific investigations focusing on potential groundwater transportation of nuclides and other hazardous materials through the different aquifers within the air. The area of particular interest, and the subject of this report, is the General Separations Area.
  • This brief report explains the method used for parameter calibration and model validation in SST/Macro and the set of tools and workflow developed for this purpose.
  • This study evaluated a prototype load modeling procedure developed by the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in EPRI project RP849-3. Tests were run on three different power systems to evaluate the procedure's accuracy in modeling the dynamic power response of loads (active and reactive) when subjected to limited excursions of voltage and frequency. In support activities, guidelines were developed for the load modeling procedure, and possible data sources for it were investigated. The period of performance was September 1976 to July 1980. The work accomplished is reported in a final report of four volumes. In this volume possible datamore » sources for the load modeling procedure are identified and analyzed as to their potential for use in determining the composition of bus load by component. A methodology is proposed.« less
