  • Patent number: 11374411
    Abstract: The invention relates to an island converter overload limit method and device for a bipolar flexible DC transmission system, and belongs to the field of DC transmission. During stable island operation, both bipolar converters adopt a voltage-frequency droop control strategy; and once it is detected that one converter is overloaded, the control mode of the overloaded converter is automatically switched to active-wattless power control from voltage-frequency droop control to fulfill an overload limit function. The method effectively avoids an overload of the bipolar flexible DC transmission system under island operation, effectively maintains the AC voltage and frequency stable, and has important guiding significance for applying island systems to DC power grids.

  • Publication number: 20220094571
    Abstract: Disclosed methods for network modernization include obtaining a list of end-to-end circuits carried in a circuit-switched network, calculating, for each circuit, an early retirement credit (ERC) score and a circuit load factor (CLF) score, selecting, dependent on the ERC and CLF scores, a circuit to migrate to a new network, adding the selected circuit to a circuit migration sequence, and removing the circuit from the list. The ERC score represents the number of circuit-switching units on which no circuits would be carried and that would remain in the network following its removal. The CLF score represents an average number of circuits that would be carried on each circuit-switching unit currently traversed by the circuit following its removal. When two circuits have the highest ERC score, the circuit with the lowest CLF score is selected for migration. The method is repeated until the list is empty.
