  • High-power, fast-recovery vacuum switches were used in a new repetitive counterpulse and transfer circuit to deliver a 5-kHz pulse train with a peak power of 75 MW (at 8.6 kA) to a 1-..cap omega.. load, resulting in the first demonstration of fully controlled, high-power, high-repetition-rate operation of an inductive energy-storage and transfer system with nondestructive switches. New circuits, analytical and experimental results, and feasibility of 100-kV repetitive pulse generation are discussed. A new switching concept for railgun loads is presented.
  • Wind power plants and other renewable power plants with power electronic interfaces are capable of delivering frequency response (both governor and/or inertial response) to the grid by a control action; thus, the reduction of available online inertia as conventional power plants are retired can be compensated by designing renewable power plant controls to include frequency response. The source of energy to be delivered as inertial response is determined by the type of generation and control strategy chosen. The cost of energy storage is expected to drop over time, and global research activities on energy storage are very active, funded bothmore » by the private industry and governments. Different industry sectors (e.g., transportation, energy) are the major drivers of the recent storage research and development. This work investigates the opportunities and capabilities of deploying energy storage in renewable power plants. In particular, we focus on wind power plants with doubly-fed induction generators, or Type 3 wind turbine generator (WTGs). We find that the total output power of a system with Type 3 WTGs with energy storage can deliver a power boost during inertial response that is up to 45% higher than one without energy storage without affecting the torque limit, thus enabling an effective delivery of ancillary services to the grid.« less
  • Computerized Energy Management Systems (EMSs) are being installed in an increasing number of new and existing commercial buildings. While their primary function is to control building systems to save energy and power, many of these systems are also capable of monitoring the building systems and energy use. Using a case study approach, this paper evaluates the monitoring capabilities of the EMSs in two buildings in California. The retrieved data include historical hourly demand and outdoor air temperature, along with either instantaneous status or accumulated run-time data for each end use. The authors founds that an EMS, in order to monitormore » building energy performance, must reliably measure parameters that yield energy consumption information (end-use demand is most useful) and store this information long enough so that it can be retrieved. In many cases, minor additions to the hardware and software of an EMS could greatly enhance its monitoring capabilities.« less
