This paper demonstrates how an Irrigation Management System (IMS) can practically be implemented by successfully deploying a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Specifically, the paper describes an IMS which was set up in Manja Township, City of Blantyre based on an advanced irrigation scheduling technique. Since the system had to be self-sustained in terms of(More)
compliant substation computing hardware, connected to a real-time simulator, are presented for two different case study networks: an interconnected 33kV network and an 11kV radial network. These results demonstrate the feasibility of the approach both in terms of its applicability to different network topologies and its real-time performance. The paper(More)
Condition monitoring (CM) systems are increasingly installed in wind turbines with the goal of providing component-specific information to wind farm operators, theoretically increasing equipment availability via maintenance and operating actions based on this information. In the offshore case, economic benefits of CM systems are often assumed to be(More)
Condition monitoring systems are increasingly installed in wind turbine generators with the goal of providing component-specific information to the wind farm operator and hence increase equipment availability through maintenance and operating actions based on this information. In some cases, however, the economic benefits of such systems are unclear. A(More)
CWPE 0609 and EPRG 0513 These working papers present preliminary research findings, and you are advised to cite with caution unless you first contact the author regarding possible amendments. Abstract The next fifty years are likely to see great developments in the technologies deployed in electricity systems, with consequent changes in the structure and(More)
—Generator curtailment allows Distribution Network Operators to increase the maximum capacity of distributed renewable generation connections to their networks, but curtailment means lost revenue for generators. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) can mitigate curtailment by time-shifting generation away from congested periods and can combine this with other(More)
This paper discusses the use of distributed generation (DG) for improving the supply reliability in distribution systems. The first part of the paper contains the results of a simple analytical study of the reliability for individual customers with distributed generation on-site. The difference between disconnector-type interfaces and breaker-type interface(More)
