Systems and methods for high rate-of-change-of-frequency ride-through in electric power systems

An electric power system includes a generating unit, which includes a controller for controlling an operational mode of the generating unit. The electric power system also includes an event estimator communicatively coupled to the controller of the …

System and method for regulation of voltage on an electric power system

An electric power system includes an OLTC transformer including a plurality of primary and secondary windings inductively coupled to each other. The electric power system includes at least one on-load tap changer coupled to at least one of the …

System and method of online filtering of photovoltaic signals

A system for online filtering of photovoltaic (PV) output signals includes a programmable filter that is programmed to decompose measured PV output power into an estimated low-frequency signal component, based substantially on movement of the sun and …

Models and Control Strategies for Data Centers in the Smart Grid

This chapter discusses the challenges and the possibilities offered by controlling a data center as a node of the _smart-grid_. The communication between the grid and the data center takes the form of a time-varying and power-consumption-dependent …

Model Predictive Control of Data Centers in the Smart Grid Scenario

This paper discusses the challenges and the possibilities offered by controlling a data center as a node of the smart-grid. Communication between the grid and a data center takes the form of a time-varying and power-consumption-dependent electricity …

A cyber-physical systems approach to energy management in data centers

This paper presents a new control strategy for data centers that aims to optimize the trade-off between maximizing the payoff from the provided quality of computational services and minimizing energy costs for computation and cooling. The data center …
