Optimal Strategy Study on Integration of Thermal
Energy Storage/pump Thermal Energy Storage Technology in
Coal-fired Power Units
Abstract: In order to achieve carbon peak and carbon neutrality, China will gradually build a novel power generation system based on renewable energy. Coal-fired power plants will transform from main energy to supportive and regulatory power. Operational flexibility of the coal-fired power plants must be improved so as to deal with the unpredictability of renewable energy in the future. Hence, the synergy mechanism of the efficiency and flexibility of coal-fired power generation units has been researched and revealed. The internal constraints of the flexibility of units have been identified. It is necessary to improve the operational flexibility and thermal economy of coal-fired power plants by optimizing the configuration of thermal system, coupling and matching of thermal system and thermal control. In addition, the multi-temperature zone thermal energy storage technology is proposed to realize the integration of thermal energy storage/pump thermal energy storage technology in coal-fired power units, and to match the energy potential of the thermal process of coal-fired power generation through thermal energy storage. This paper can promote the progress of coal-fired power units and heating technology, and promote coal-fired power to play an important role in building a clean, safe and efficient energy system in China.

Early Warning of Inter-turn Short Circuit
Fault of Turbogenerator Rotor Winding based on DCS
The inter-turn short circuit of rotor winding is a common fault of turbogenerator, and early warning of the faults in the early stage is of great significance to ensure the safe and reliable operation of turbogenerator. This speech will discuss an inter-turn short circuit fault warning model based on vibration-current fusion by deep mining of the DCS (the distributed control system) data of turbogenerator. This speech will focus on how to use the correlation analysis method to deeply mine the status data of DCS from the perspective of time and space, and how to use the collaborative gain analysis method to achieve the deep integration of vibration signals and excitation current signals to improve the sensitivity of early warning. The talk will draw a conclusion that it is not only feasible to realize timely early warning of turbine generator faults based on DCS data deep mining, but also has a high early warning accuracy.

Time-frequency Domain Response Analysis for
Condition Assessment and Fault Detection in
High-voltage Vehicle Cable Terminals
The high-voltage vehicle cable terminals are
subjected to the combined effect of transient
overvoltage, rapid alternating cold and heat and
long-term high-frequency vibration, resulting in
the stratification of its internal insulation
layer, micro air gap and partial discharge.
Therefore, it is essential to uncover the
defects in vehicle high-voltage cable terminals
effectively. The terahertz time-frequency domain
response characteristics are proposed to
evaluate the condition and inspect the inner
defects/faults in high-voltage vehicle cable
terminals. A three-layer composite structure is
established to simulate the internal weaknesses
of vehicle high-voltage cable terminals. The
results show that the THz absorption spectrum
can be used to judge whether there are defects
quickly, and the ability to absorb terahertz
waves in the area with insulation delamination
is more significant than that in the normal
zone. Furthermore, the location and geometric
information of the defect can be roughly
determined by multi-mode terahertz imaging of
the sample with insulation delamination defect,
and the imaged defect areas are verified by the
area detection method based on image
segmentation. Finally, the thickness of stress
tube layers, air gaps and main insulation layers
can be quickly estimated by the terahertz
time-domain spectrum. Through the terahertz
absorption spectrum, terahertz multi-mode
imaging and terahertz time-domain spectrum, the
internal delamination defects of vehicle
high-voltage cable terminals can be
