Microgrid Motor Starting Analysis
Xendee's multi-motor, multi-phase motor starting analysis provides valuable insight on the voltage condition of buses throughout a microgrid power distribution system during motor starting events for 3-phase and 1-phase induction motors. Multiple 3-phase and 1-phase motors at various locations can be started in order to accurately predict the voltage drop effects of such events on a power distribution system and investigate methods to alleviate such voltage disturbances.
Xendee directly integrates several common motor starting techniques, while OpenDSS technology provides engineers with the ability to extend models in order to simulate virtually any type of motor starting situation.
Three independent analyses are performed on a microgrid in order to simulate the power systems initial voltage condition along with the during and after the motor starting event.
