Abstract
This paper presents a long-term impact evaluation algorithm to assess advanced under frequency load shedding (UFLS) schemes on distribution systems with intentional islanding of distributed generation (DG). The algorithm is based on a combined discrete-continuous simulation (CDCS) model which is utilized to verify the effect of the schemes on reliability indices such as the System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI), System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) and Energy Not Supplied (ENS). Moreover, a Polynomial Neural Network (PNN)-based approach to advanced load shedding is implemented to support DG islanding in order to illustrate the applicability of the evaluation. Simulation results highlight the long-term effect of employing UFLS to support intentional islanding of DG using an actual network from the South of Brazil. IEEE

Abstract
The development of small-scale power generation units based on biomass gasification is an effective mean to meet the growth interest of deployment of local power generation exploiting endogenous renewable energy sources. However, significant research and development activities are required towards the deployment of cost-effective solutions suitable to be used in several applications and with different biomass feedstock. For this purpose, a flexible experimental setup is required to be developed. This paper proposes a critical review of the current state of the art of the available technologies suitable for small-scale power generation using biomass gasification. The main guidelines to develop cost-effective solutions are identified and the conceptual framework of the experimental setup is proposed. Also, the operational specifications are presented. © 2019 IEEE.

Abstract
Using Voltage Source Converter (VSC) based High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technologies, in a Multi-terminal de (MTDC) system, has been envisaged as an attractive solution for connecting the large offshore wind farms that have been planned to meet the EU renewable energy targets. The control and operation of VSC-HVDC technologies comprise a number of challenging tasks, aiming to assure an effective integration of MTDC systems in ac transmission systems. Stability studies play a key role within this framework Among them, small signal stability analysis is required. Therefore, in this paper, modal analysis is performed for assessing small signal stability, in terms of the electromechanical modes of oscillation, considering the combined AC-MTDC system. Also, this paper evaluates the interest of installing classical Power Systems Stabilizer (PSS) in the onshore VSC stations for providing additional damping to the electromechanical modes of oscillation. Simultaneous tuning is performed for adjusting the parameters of these PSS based controllers. For this purpose, an optimization based approach exploiting Evolutionary Particle Swarm Optimization (EPSO) is proposed. Modal analysis and time domain simulations are performed to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed solutions. © 2014 Power Systems Computation Conference.
