Cost Optimal Design of a Power Inductor by Sequential Gradient Search

Amarnath Sanyal, Arabinda Das, Raju Basak


Power inductors are used for compensating VAR generated by long EHV transmission lines and in electronic circuits. For the EHV-lines, the rating of the inductor is decided upon by techno-economic considerations on the basis of the line-susceptance. It is a high voltage high current device, absorbing little active power and large reactive power. The cost is quite high- hence the design should be made cost-optimally. The 3-phase power inductor is similar in construction to a 3-phase core-type transformer with the exception that it has only one winding per phase and each limb is provided with an air-gap, the length of which is decided upon by the inductance required. In this paper, a design methodology based on sequential gradient search technique and the corresponding algorithm leading to cost-optimal design of a 3-phase EHV power inductor has been presented. The case-study has been made on a 220 kV long line of NHPC running from Chukha HPS to Birpara of Coochbihar.
