  • Advanced control strategies for pumped storage plant 

    King, David J.; Bradley, David A.; Mansoor, S. P.; Jones, D. I.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R. (2002-07)
    Pump storage hydropower stations provide a highly flexible means of managing a power system by virtue of their operational flexibility. In particular, their ability to respond rapidly to changes in system loading means ...
  • Control of a pumped-storage hydro plant using multiple fuzzy inference systems 

    King, David J.; Bradley, David A.; Mansoor, S. P.; Jones, D. I.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R. (Aqua-Media International, 2002)
    The First Hydro Company’s (FHC) pumped storage hydro plant at Dinorwig in North Wales is the largest of its kind in Europe and was designed to offer a high rate of response to changes in grid frequency. However, as operational ...
  • Investigation into a new governor scheme for the Dinorwig pumped storage hydro plant 

    Mansoor, S. P.; Jones, D. I.; King, David J.; Bradley, David A.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R. (Aqua-Media International, 2002)
  • Reproducing oscillatory behaviour of a hydroelectric power station by computer simulation 

    Mansoor, S. P.; Jones, D. I.; Bradley, David A.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R. (Elsevier, 2000-11)
    This paper describes a complex simulation of a pumped-storage hydroelectric power station. Dinorwig power station's fast response is essential for controlling the electricity supply frequency on the national grid in Great ...
  • A standard method for specifying the response of hydroelectric plant in frequency-control mode 

    Jones, D. I.; Mansoor, S. P.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R.; Bradley, David A.; King, David J. (Elsevier, 2004-01)
    The paper proposes a specification for the transient and steady-state responses of a hydroelectric power station operating in frequency-control mode. It can be used during design, testing and commissioning as well as forming ...
  • Using a fuzzy inference system to control a pumped storage hydro plant 

    King, David J.; Bradley, David A.; Mansoor, S. P.; Jones, D. I.; Aris, F. C.; Jones, G. R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2001)
    The paper discusses the development of a fuzzy inference system (FIS) based governor control for a pumped storage hydroelectric plant. The First Hydro Company's plant at Dinorwig in North Wales is the largest of its kind ...
