Grid Management and House Load Operation in Thermal Power Station

M. Hariprabhu and Dr.K. Sundararaju

Increase in population increases the power demand. In order to satisfy the power demand power generation should be increased and transmission is to supply the reliable electrical energy to the consumers. This paper deals with the efficient control of power plant using microcontroller embedded technology. In the case of grid failure, it tends to operate at the islanding mode, where the generation of electric power in the unit is called House load operation. At this condition, the generator has to run the house load to keep the plant at the continuous operating condition. When the synchronization of the grid is achieved back due to the restoration of the grid then the load is increased. This islanding mode of operation is to drive the house load which is called auxiliary power consumption.
