OPERATIONS AND CONTROL OF SMART TRANSFORMER FOR MANAGERIAL PERFORMANCE OF STAND-ALONE OPERATIONS
Abstract: Power transformers form very delicate and salient part of changing voltage and current levels to suite power transferability and distributions in the power grid system. As smart transformer is the main driving component of this fast growing smart power grid system serving the capacity of delivering quality, efficient and reliable power to meet the resent dynamism in load demand and various system applications. Discussed in this paper is how smart transformer helps in the integration of distributed energies for stand-alone applications such as supplying power to rural and remote areas, special load applications. Therefore MATLAB software simulated and analyzed the operational control of smart transformer for stand-alone application aiming at using two distributed energy sources (Small hydro-dam and wind energy). Also elucidated in this paper is how judicious these distributed energies would be controlled and operated to distribute quality, reliable, secured and cost effective power supply for stand-alone purposes.
