A concrete and practically used condition assessment method of MV-transformes is given in paper 686 from Malaysia.

Some methods are more theoretical or inexperimental stage, while others are well used andimplemented in grid operating companies.The papers 146, 530 (both U.K.) and 195 (Netherlands)present the experiences with different condition assessmentsystems based on partial discharge monitoring systems.CIRED2009 Session 3 : Operation, Control and Protection Page 2 / 20
  • 3. CIRED 20th International Conference on Electricity Distribution Prague, 8-11 June 2009 Paper 874 from the Netherlands is about organizational changes which are necessary since the lifecycles of substation automation systems are getting and shorter and shorter and the systems themselves are getting more and more integrated. Two papers deal with risk assessment in distribution grids: A technical assessment management systems developed at EDP in Portugal based on risk assessment and condition assessment is presented in paper 914, while paper 171 (Norway) shows maintenance strategies based on qualitative and quantitative risk assessment. Beside the papers presented in the condition assessmentFig. 4: Transformer health index according to age block two more papers deal with new, more sophisticated maintenance or refurbishment strategies: Paper 611 givesFigure 4 actually shows the condition assessment results for the experience of replacing Static Var compensators (SVC)a population of about 700 transformers and Figure 5 gives feeding a coal train haulage grid in Australia before theythe according mitigation decisions for transformers in bad reach the end of their service lifetime.

These are tobig and require to much regular maintenance according tothe paper.In Cired 2009 only three papers deal with introduction ofworkforce management (WFM) systems although this is amajor task for many grid operating companies worldwide.Paper 691 presents the implementation of a WFM-system ata large German grid operating company.

Paper 331 from China presents an analysis of switching time and capacities to compensate the reactive power of substations in a 35-kV-grid more accurate. Another analysis of reactive power compensation is given in paper 179 from Brazil. In Paper 68 a method to plan and optimise own resources of a grid operating company (field service personnel, agency staff, tools etc.) and to define an optimal outsourcing strategy is introduced. An example of the optimisation ofFig. 8: 110kV central conductor icing scene the operation of a high voltage grid is given. A similar model is presented in paper 818 in Session 6.It is shown, how the weather conditions could damage thegrid so much and therefore affect the power supply so Paper 408 from Austria deals with the problem of stableextensive. Finally countermeasures to prevent such black island operation of grids. Grid restoration strategies in aouts in the future are given. 110-kV-grid are proved with dynamic simulations taking grid and feeding power stations into account. Potential scope of discussion − Condition assessment of grid components: Why is it so difficult to solve the problem? Is there a general solution trend? How about the ageing phenomenon? − WFM-systems: Are they well introduced in the companies or are they still an experiment? How do they affect the whole processes of a grid operation company? − Maintenance strategies: To simple or to sophisticated?

To overcome this problem in Finland (paper478) and Germany (paper 919) information platforms for3rd-parties like police and fire-service and of course for thecustomers concerned have been developed.Table 1: Papers of Block 1 Operation assigned to Session 3 Paper No. Title MS MS RIF PS a.m. p.m. No.: 0045 Use of Information Generated by Remotely Controlled Medium-Voltage X Distribution System Components No.: 0065 The Utilisation of Lithium-Ion Batteries in Substations X No.: 0068 Reducing Network Operation Costs by Optimal Resource Planning X X No.: 0119 Analysis of Icing Accident in South China Power Grids in 2008 and Its X X Countermeasures No.: 0146 Experience of Mobile Web-Based Condition-Monitoring Technology for X Partial Discharge Detection and Analysis No.: 0171 Experiences Using Quantitative Risk Assessment in Distribution System X Maintenance ManagementCIRED2009 Session 3 : Operation, Control and Protection Page 4 / 20

In paper 76 (U.K.) the idea of a ‘third generation DMS’ is introduced to cover these future requirements including the management of Smart Grids. Likewise papers 722 and 841 both from Germany focus on the growing needs for new, more intelligent DMS caused by more and more smart components connected to the grid. Paper 770 gives a 3- phases path (see Fig. 12) from today’s DMS towards future ‘Smart Grid’-DMS.Fig. 10: SCADA/DMS system configurationEven more management and control information isaggregated in the ‘vision’ of new control centres inSwitzerland (paper 587) and Italy. In paper 365 a so called‘supervision dashboard’ is presented which gives anoverview of the supply situation of the whole Enel-distribution grid. As shown in Figure 11 the user can zoominto each local control system to see its daily operationactivities.

While the goal is always the same –to reduce customers duration of supply interruptions- the methods to achieve this goal are different. First papers 453 (Denmark) and 635 (France) introduce the ‘self healing MV- distribution grid’. In case of a MV-fault, several main switching and re-supply actions are carried though automatically by local automated MV-substations (Figure 13) before field staff arrives.Fig. 11: Local and national ‘supervision dashboard’Paper 73 from Egypt is abaut a practical project to increasethe life time of the DMS of the city of Alexandria whilepaper 687 (Finland) presents Helsinki’s new DMS for theMV grid and in paper 699 an existing DMS in Serbia isimproved by including optimal voltage control.

The Paper depicts how the characteristics of the relay can deviate more than expected. From those characteristics, three new performance indices are proposed. The method used for the assessment could be used in an analysis of protective system performance during system faults and also for selecting the proper relay for a specific application that requires the relay operation to be more independent of decaying DC components.
