Arc Flash Analysis and Techniques for Hazard Reduction Using Smart Protective Devices

Posted on

This paper presents an arc flash risk assessment taking care of the protection device coordination procedure in order to reduce incident arc flash energy at low voltage busbars in a biomass power plant. The mitigations were measured and presented to reduce incident arc flash energy using the appropriate smart protection device software. A short circuit analysis is performed to calculate the values of short circuit currents and compute arc flash energy dissipated at busbars at low voltage busbars in the biomass power plant. An arc flash can cause damages to electrical equipment and personnel. In this paper, three main techniques were considered, namely arc flash prevention, prediction and monitoring, detection and reduction using a smart arc flash module and proper protection coordination software. A practical sample case is presented for low voltage busbars in one biomass power plant in Croatia.

Industrial Electronics as a Separate Engineering Field

Posted on Updated on

Industrial electronic systems are differentiated from other electronic systems mainly based on their application, which is usually related to industrial and manufacturing processes, while this differentiation sometimes refers to their ruggedized design and components. This is an attempt to refer both to the discrete character and the broadness of the engineering field of industrial electronics, roughly describing the orientation of the new journal, Journal of Industrial Electronics and Applications.

City to Grid (C2G): A Multidisciplinary Opportunity to Engineers Working on Industrial Electronics

Posted on Updated on

A new journal comes to life. The Journal of Industrial Electronics and Applications is open to a wide variety of topics and research lines. This editorial is meant to outline a possible multidisciplinary trajectory which provides different research opportunities to engineers working on Industrial Electronics topics. Cities are seen today, from the electric energy point of view, as a set of individual power loads with an unpredictable global behavior (lighting, HVAC, domestic loads and more), but because of several emerging technologies (EV, renewable energies, IoT), the increasing environmental sensitivity and the proposal of new services to citizens, this view of the city is changing drastically. The coordination of power loads to operate as a large single load, the unstoppable introduction of renewable energies in urban environments and the need for energy storage motivated by the rise of EVs are possible due to the growth of IoT. This allows cleverly coordination of every element in the city and therefore its transformation into a great power load, a great energy farm or a large energy storage system (IoE). The coordination of many small elements permits the operation as large modules. Just to mention a few of the technologies involved we can find: lighting engineering, energy storage, EV charging stations, renewable energy generators, wireless communications, control strategies for DC energy distribution, active urban furniture, grid interconnection strategies and many more. The generic denomination of C2G has been used to encompass all these different technologies. Diverse concepts and new ideas about C2G serve as the guiding thread to propose a work trajectory to this new journal. Like the Spanish poet, Antonio Machado, said: “Traveler, there is no path. Paths are made by walking”.

Industrial Electronics

Industrial electronics is a branch of electronic engineering that deals with power electronics, for example, thyristors, SCRs, AC and DC drives, meters, sensors, analyzers, stack cells programmed test gear, mulitimeters, information recorders, transfers, resistors, semiconductors, transistors, waveguides, scopes, speakers, radio recurrence (RF) circuit boards, timers, counters, etc. It covers all of the methods and procedures of control systems, instrumentation, mechanism and diagnosis, signal processing and automation of various industrial applications. The main and important research areas of industrial electronics are electrical power machine designs, power conditioning and power semiconductor devices. Read the rest of this entry »

Sensors and Actuators

Posted on Updated on

A sensor is a device that measures and changes over physical amount into a signal which can be perused by an observer. For instance, camcorders and computerized cameras have a picture sensor.

An actuator is a device that is responsible for moving and controlling a system. An actuator requires a control signal and a source of energy to serve the purpose. The control signal is comparatively low energy and may be electric voltage or current, pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, or even human power.
