|Title:||Grounding System Design in Electrical Substation: An Optimization Approach|
|Abstract:||The main purpose of this work is the development of an optimization model for the design of the grounding grid in electrical substations. The problem is formulated as a mixedinteger linear programming problem, in terms of the constructive characteristics and the peculiar requirements to construct and to install the grounding grid. The model incorporates the variables that define the grid characteristics of all possible configurations including the grid geometry and the depth and conductor size. The optimization problem is subject to safety constraints related with the maximum allowed touching and step voltages. It also includes the equivalent impedance of the transmission line connected to the substation where it will be located the grounding grid to be designed. The methodology allows selecting the optimum grid of the possible configurations, so that is a very useful tool for the engineering design. The formulation and specifications used is based in IEEE Std. 80-2000.|
