ISLA: Island System Load-shedding Applications

Dr. Lukas Sigrist

General description

iSLA is a tool for simulation, analysis and design of conventional and advanced underfrequency load-shedding (UFLS) schemes of island and isolated power systems. iSLA can handle a large amount of operating and contingency scenarios.

Isolated power systems are especially sensitive to generation-load imbalances. The small size, the relatively low inertia, and the comparatively large generation in-feeds make them more vulnerable than large interconnected systems. UFLS schemes are the last-resort tool to protect the power system in case of a severe contingency. iSLA incorporates both conventional and advanced UFLS schemes.

Key features

  • Simple and quick simulation of conventional UFLS schemes: the user can either use predefined contingencies or specify them explicitly.
  • Two-step design of conventional UFLS schemes: Contingencies are either selected manually or through Cluster Analysis. Different optimization algorithms and objective function formulations are available. The optimization constraints and the set of decision variables are fully modifiable.
  • Monte-Carlo simulations for the analysis of conventional UFLS schemes: the user can select from a large set of distribution functions and specify their parameters. Several reporting indexes can also be specified by the user.
  • Synthesis of advanced UFLS schemes: the user can quickly simulate the behavior of UFLS schemes based on Decision Trees, ANN, Regression, or Frequency Stability Boundary.
  • Tuning of generator models for frequency stability studies: the user can select and fine tune generator models by using either available detailed models or field test measurements.
  • Incorporation of energy storage systems.
