Ipsa 2 DC Networks

Features

  • A range of DC components are available for load flow and transient stability studies
  • Permits the study of specialist systems

Benefits

  • Both DC and AC models can be modelled at the same time
  • Batteries, AC/DC converters, motors and DC machines are supported

Ipsa also provides the facility for modelling DC networks and devices in the same model as the conventional AC network. A range of DC components is provided with the optional DC module which permits both load flow and transient stability studies to be undertaken.

Ipsa also provides the facility for modelling DC networks and devices in the same model as the conventional AC network. A range of DC components is provided with the optional DC module which permits both load flow and transient stability studies to be undertaken.

This permits the study of specialist systems such as:

  • HVDC links between AC systems
  • Ship based DC power systems
  • DC generators and battery systems

The following DC components are currently supported:

  • Batteries
  • AC/DC converters
    • Voltage source converter
    • Current source converter
    • AC side converter controller or regulator
    • DC side converter controllers
  • Motor - generator sets
    • Synchronous AC generator with governor and AVR controllers
    • Series or compund DC Machine with controllers
  • DC machines
    • Series wound with or without control windings
    • Compound or shunt wound with or without control windings
