Influence of Metal Pipes in the Environment on Designing the Underground Electrical Installations

By Igor S. Bjelic Filip N. Markovic Nenad A. Markovic Slobodan N. Bjelic

Underground installations are networks of metal pipes and cables in space at a certain distance from the ground surface. Insulating layers of metal pipes of underground installations (gas, plumbing, electrical...) do not provide their full protection against corrosion and breakdowns. In urban areas, wandering currents (electric rail or earthing of power plants) repeatedly increase failures in underground installations in the environment. That is why a certain kind of protection is foreseen for the protection of metal pipes of underground installations against corrosion and destruction from wandering currents. However, until today there is no universal method for calculating the parameters of stationary and quasi-stationary electric fields of wandering currents and a general solution for arbitrary configuration, but it is possible to form a model algorithm for controlling the state and failures of insulation of underground electrical installations. Solutions for wandering currents could be determined by the criterion of similarity to transient currents on power lines. In the paper, in program MATLAB Simulink a simulation for the correction of wandering currents using foreign grounding has been performed on certain parts of underground installations. It has been shown that the solution of the task is possible with help of the model-algorythm which allows a determinaitn of the power on isolation layer of the cable sheat, and with simulation of the different versions of schedule of protective equipment, their optimal schedule could be determined.

Application of Cauchy (Lipschitz) Criterion for Obtaining Theoretical Models of Atmosphere Striking Overvoltages

By Slobodan N. Bjelic Nenad A. Markovic Zorica S. Bogicevic Igor S. Bjelic

In investigation of consequences of atmosphere and commutating striking voltages, for simulation of the overvoltage are used the models of generators whose RC circuits have standard passive parameters of the elements upon which the form of striking overvoltage depends.

According to IEC 62 305-1 standard, these formulas in the theoretical model serve for dimensioning the RC circuit of the generator of striking voltages although the definitions of time constants and passive parameters have only axiomatic character. Related to classical solution, this paper presents the model formed by mathematical procedure the solutions of which give sufficiently accurate values of time constants and essential parameters of RC circuit as well as the shape of striking voltage wave. The formulas for voltages and currents in model contain parameters of passive elements, and their accuracy has been confirmed by diagrams obtained in simulation by means of adapted psbtrnsrg.mdl part of MATLAB program. Theoretical model is suitable for simulation of standard wave forms of striking atmospheric and commutating overvoltages which replace laboratory testing.
