Danilo Obradović got the best paper award in Power System Dynamics, Stability, and Control at the 50th North American Power Symposium (NAPS 2018) conference, Fargo, North Dakota, USA. His work is part of the multiDC project and the paper can be found here.
He received the first prize for the best paper in the track “Power Systems Dynamics, Stability, and Control” and the third prize overall. The paper title is: “Assessment and Design of Frequency Containment Reserves with HVDC interconnections”. In the paper, Danilo assesses the
dynamical performance of generators involved in the Frequency Containment Reserves and correlates them with additional Emergency Power Control from High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) interconnections. The currently used constant power ramp control and a new proposed frequency droop control of HVDC interconnections are investigated for different amounts of inertia in a test system representing the Nordic Power System. The performance of each HVDC control is evaluated with respect to the maximum Instantaneous Frequency Deviation and the amount of power required for provided frequency control actions.
