Nexans presenting at CIGRE Aukland, NZ Symposium

Best Practices in Transmission and Distribution in a Changing Environment

The 2013 symposium will highlight Best Practices in Transmission and Distribution in a Changing Environment with the following primary topics:

• Extreme weather and environmental conditions (heavy rain, humidity, seismic, etc.)

• Lifetime management, asset management, maintenance techniques

• Upgrading and uprating of Transmission and Distribution assets

• HV and MV equipment

• New requirements for combined AC-DC networks, and

• Distributed generation issues (storage, stability, etc.)

Eric Hsieh from Nexans will present a paper entitled “Sizing of Battery Energy Storage for Dynamic Stability.” The paper describes how to size storage to stabilize generators, and how such increases can be coordinated with Dynamic Line Ratings to increase power transfers across stability and thermally-limited grid constraints.
