Abstract

Process simulation controlled by demons: An AI approach for predicting the reliability of electrical substation architectures prior to design R. Sandner" & A. Montoya* * Fraunhofer-Institute for Industrial Engineering, D-7000 Stuttgart, Germany * General Electric Protecciones y Control S.A., E-48080 Bilbao, Spain SUMMARY The paper describes a methodological approach for integrating mathematical models of primary and secondary equipment of an electrical substation into a qualitative behavioural representation by means of interacting objects. The major innovative potential of this approach lies in the possibility to allow for an easy estimation of system reliability and behaviour of equipment under disturbances for even not yet existing substation architectures. This enables the protection engineer to test several design alternatives off-line before the actual implementation at a substation will take place. Therefore, the object-oriented simulation tool called SUB SIM has been d
