  • Compensation and transient studies on a long EHV overhead line Illustration with the AGADIR-LAAYOUNE 400kV overhead line project
  • Study background
  • Issue ■ Very weak 225kV network CHICHAOUA Long antenna (approx. 1200km) STEP A.MOMN PE3 AGADIR Low production LAAYOUNE Boujdour Low loads Low short-circuit power Oed TEIMA Dakhla PHOS .B GUELMIME TIZNIT IMI MKOURNE PE2 PE1 TANTAN Ait MELLOUL ■ Incoming generators in the southern part of the grid Winfarms (~ 800 MW) in the south Reversal of the usual power flow Heavy loaded 225 kV network Study: Distorted voltage profile Temporary disturbances ■ Steady state analysis ■ Transient overvoltage studies ■ Technical solution ■ Transit capacity optimization Extension of the northern 400kV (series compensation) network to the south Double circuit 400kV overhead line between Agadir and Laâyoune 3
  • Modelling
  • Many different phenomena ■ Different frequencies Power frequency (50 Hz) Low frequency (~ 500 Hz) Transient disturbances (~ 5 kHz) ■ Different simulation cases Load flow Temporal Frequency scan ■ References: Guide CEI 60071-4: Computational guide to insulation co-ordination and modelling of electrical networks Brochure CIGRE n° GUIDELINES FOR REPRESENTATION OF NETWORK ELEMENTS 39: WHEN CALCULATING TRANSIENTS
  • One schematic for all cases… 2 ■ Future network development ■ Border of the circuit: Propagation # 1/f 2 2 2 1 2 1 LAAYOUNE AGADIR 1 For low frequency studies: Thevenin equivalent at 50 Hz 1 1 2 1 1 6 ■ Completion with the southern 2 225kV grid
  • Components modelling (1) ■ Basics models, non frequency-dependent: R, L et C + + ZnO + + + ■ Lines: FD model for temporal simulations Geometrical PI-exact model for frequency scans data ■ Generators:
  • Components modelling (2) ■ Transformers: standard low frequency model Trans form er Data BCTRAN Coupling considerations
  • Components modelling (3) ■ Specificity: auto-transformer ■ Modelling of magnetic saturation: HV LV Winding 1 Winding 2 parameters parameters parameters parameters UHV ULV UHV – ULV ULV 2 ZHV-LV  U HV  Z HV - LV . U -U    HV LV  Validation by simulating the factory tests…
  • Validation of the model ■ Quite impossible to validate so complicated a network To many components Very simplified modelling Which data to compare to? ■ Load-flow simulations Compilation of the model No misconnections of the components Production / consumption configurations ■ Time domain simulations Compilation of the model Predicted behaviour
  • Shunt compensation
  • No-load compensation ■ Determination of the total reactive power needed Energization of the line (extremity disconnected): 800 Mvar needed ■ Which compensation scheme? Intermediary substations needed? Which repartition between substations? Reactors on the line or in the substation? Many steps needed? New specifications for reactors? Common mode? ■ 10 cases studied: 12
  • No-load compensation (2) ■ Observation of the voltage profile along the line Line connected at Agadir substation Line connected at Laâyoune substation Line connected to both substations 13
  • On-load compensation ■ Evolution of the compensation needs with the load Progressive increase of the generated power Adaptation of the compensation ■ Final compensation scheme: No intermediary substation Line reactors, all connected with circuit breaker =>new operation rules Minimal step = 40Mvar
  • Transient studies
  • Temporary overvoltage ■ Load drop ■ Windfarms power generation variation ■ Single phase fault overvoltage = 1.2 pu ■ Three phase fault 16
  • Switching overvoltage (1) ■ Frequency scan Different configurations • Substation analysed • Lines configuration • Compensation scheme Identification of potentially harmful situations ■ Statistical studies for each scenario Parameter variation • Apparition of the fault • Opening time of the circuit breakers • Closing time of the circuit breakers Maximum overvoltage ■ Statistical studies have no ending… 17

  • Series compensation
  • Series compensation ■ Why compensating? 225kV => stability constraint ■ What solutions? Series capacitors Phase shifting transformer FACTS (UPFC, …) ■ Method: Amount of compensation • Increase of the power generation • Stability limit in faulty conditions • Determination of the optimal compensation rate Objective: stability limit = thermal limit Compensation scheme 20
