EMTP applications and modeling,
Unlisted key words:
My main activity during my industrial and academic career has involved research into new techniques in power system protection and control, the design and development of new types of protection relays and control systems and more recently condition monitoring on cables and transformers. Recent research projects:
- Design of protection system for windfarms, sponsors:- Scottish Power + UK Department of Trade & Industry.
- Investigation into reliability of integrated protection and control systems, sponsors:- UK National Grid Company (NGC)+ Scottish Power.
- Design of GPS synchronised differential feeder protection scheme, sponsors:- ALSTOM + EPSRC (UK Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council).
- Design and implementation of an expert system for wide area back-up protection, sponsors:- NGC+ Scottish Power.
- Research into travelling wave techniques for fault location, sponsor:- Hathaway & Norweb.
- Development of electrical techniques to locate partial discharges in transformers, sponsors:- NGC, Alstom, Edison Mission.
- Research into new techniques for knowledge extraction in substation, sponsor:- Alstom.
- Design of a wide area differential protection system,sponsors:- EPSRC, VATech, NGC, Hathaway, Scottish Power.
- Investigation into detection of oversheath damage on EHV cables, sponsors:- NGC, Pirelli, BICC General.
- Research into the detection and location of PD activity in cables, sponsors:- Norweb, London electricity, East Midlands Electricity.
My research involves the use of the following experimental facilities at UMIST:- the High Voltage Laboratory (2.0MV impulse, 800kV AC and 750kV DC), the partial discharge cable laboratory and the protection laboratory (RTDS, OMICRON, analogue test bench).
In addition many of the projects use the experimental facilities available at the sponsors.
