An optimal approach dedicated to energy efficiency of electrical systems

Abstract : In order to provide a vision of power electrical engineering for future energy-supply crossroads and challenges, variational principles are used to express local laws of electromagnetism : they are derived from thermodynamic principles and by assuming a reversible transfer of the global power exchanged throughout the electrical network. This approach is suitable for consolidating energy processes involved in electromagnetic and electromechanical conversions, from deep within the structure of the materials to the power network operations. Two kinds of devices are identified: (i) those dedicated to power conversion; and (ii) their couplings involved in transmission lines, distribution busways, cablings and connections. Furthermore, the approach is shown to provide a unique description framework for power management, energy efficiency and sustainable long-term planning exercises.
