Study of the dynamic performance of the Moralets pumped storage plant

November 2005 - April 2006

Funding entity Endesa Generación

The aim of this project is the modeling of the Moralets pumped storage plant. This plant is fed through a complex hydraulic circuit that comprises a tunnel, a surge tank and a penstock. The dynamic model of the plant includes a detailed representation of the hydraulic circuit. It will allow the study of the incorporation of several additional units. Two types of disturbances are simulated: a fault in the high voltage bus and the direct starting of a unit.

    Research topics:
  • *Stability: large disturbance stability, tuning of frequency loadshedding schemes, excitation control, small disturbance stability, tuning of power system stabilizers, identification of AVR and governor models
