Abstract
This paper focused on Fault current limitation in the Nigerian 330kV Power Network. The strategy adopted is the use of a genetic algorithm to optimize the proportional integral (PI) control parameters of the Unified Power Flow Controllers (UPFC). Also, the SIMULINK model of the Nigerian 330kV system was developed. Then, the result from the simulation carried out proved the versatility of UPFC on fault current limitation in the power system when the PI parameter is optimized using genetic algorithm. This indicates that the UPFC achieved an effective average of 59.23% fault current limitation. The result is shown to have high impact for protection of critical assets within the power system such as circuit breakers. At a fault impedance of 0.0001Ω, the UPFC provided a 45.81% protection margin for the type of high voltage circuit breakers used in the 330kV system.

Important Announcements


All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
