Abstract [en]

The induced primary emission leads to changes in the primary emission of a device and the induced secondary emission leads to changes in the propagation of supraharmonics in the adjacent phase due to the connection of single-phase loads spread over three phases in an installation. The induced primary emission and induced secondary emission are shown to give a significant contribution to the total emission measured at a given point in an installation. The induction of the emission is caused by the inductive and capacitive coupling among the conductors within the cables. This paper presents an analysis of four parameters that impact the magnitude of the induced emissions. Simulations carried out in COMSOL, show that the type of cable used impacts the induced emission and studies show that shielded cable with a stranded conductor with the shield grounded will lead to a reduction in the induced emissions. Among the other parameters, i.e., the load and transformer impedance and the length of the cable, the length of the cable is dominating in deciding the magnitude of the induced emissions. Analysis is carried out using Monte Carlo simulation and varying parameters stochastically. For all investigated parameters there is a strong frequency dependency. The stochastic variation of the load impedance in one phase causes a variation of 5% whereas the change in length of the cable leads to a maximum 40% variation in the considered frequency range for induced primary emission. Measurement results are presented to validate the results.

Abstract [en]

Society has increasingly started depending on the continuity of internet services, the interruption can be crucial for vital societal functions. It is therefore important to maintain continuous and reliable operations of e.g., installations housing sensitive IT (Information Technology) loads. The establishment of a data center attracts huge investments, thereby boosting the economy. The electrical load within the data center is more structured with a similar type of load, i.e., power supplies supplying the servers connected repetitively. They also use power-conditioning equipment such as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), which ensures uninterrupted power to the servers. The power supplies use switching techniques to modulate and condition the power supplied to the IT load. The switching residues from the power supplies are often in the frequency range from 2 kHz to 150 kHz, known as supraharmonics. The switching frequency of power electronic converters and power line communication are identified as the main contributors to supraharmonics. The increase in the number of power electronic converters in the power system has sparked interest in supraharmonics. Limited standards are available on the magnitude of supraharmonics allowed in the system. For installations that house multiple power converters, prior knowledge about the propagation and consequences of the supraharmonics can be an advantage in increasing their reliability. This work is focused on supraharmonics within data centers, but the results of the study can be applied to other installations.

The data centers are usually three-phase installations where single-phase devices, i.e., servers are distributed over three phases. To understand the holistic view of the system, it is important to understand the spread of supraharmonics in phase, neutral, and protective earth conductors. A perspective on the behaviour of supraharmonics in three-phase installation is presented in this work. The focal point of the work is the summation of supraharmonics in the neutral conductor and conductor crosstalk. The behaviour of the device connected in single-phase installation and when the same devices are spread over three phases may differ depending on the design of the installation. Since the focus is on a greater number of devices, analysis for the change in the magnitude of supraharmonics in a neutral conductor with the change in the number of devices is also undertaken. The IT workload in a data center changes continuously, thus a constant unbalance in the electrical load between the three phases can exist. The thesis aims to understand the factors influencing the change in supraharmonic magnitude and propagation in phase and neutral conductors according to a balanced and unbalanced voltage supply and loading conditions. The presence of a supraharmonic emitting load in one phase can cause interference on the adjacent phase due to conductor crosstalk. Crosstalk leads to the propagation of supraharmonics between the phases. The work focuses on the parameters influencing the crosstalk phenomena for supraharmonics. Among the parameters studied, the type of cable used in an installation and the cable length is dominating. The measurement of supraharmonic emission from the device connected as single-phase and connected as three-phase would differ because of crosstalk.

A large number of servers in data centers connected close by may lead to an increased leakage current. The composite leakage current can comprise subharmonics, harmonics, and supraharmonics. This can cause unwanted tripping of the residual current device (RCD), which is installed for human protection. The work aims to understand the impact of the composite residual current on the operation of the residual current devices.

The main contributions of this work are summarized as:

• A sensitivity analysis is presented based on the parameters impacting the propagation of supraharmonics for different operating modes of a UPS.

• A characterization of supraharmonics emission from different devices according to their time and frequency varying behaviour.

• A mathematical model to predict the change in the supraharmonic emission in the neutral conductor.

• An increased understanding of the behaviour of supraharmonics for constant powerloads under voltage reduction conditions in three-phase installations.

• Introduction and definition of the terms induced primary emission and induced secondary emission to explain conductor crosstalk for supraharmonic emission.

• A mathematical model to show the factors influencing the magnitude of induced primary emission and induced secondary emission.

• The frequency response of RCDs of type AC, A, B, and F under residual currents comprising pure tones and composite currents is presented by measurements andmodeling.
