Title: Research and practice of the large-scale parallel computing and artificial intelligence algorithm in typical equipment of new power system
Abstract: Taking the converter transformer for UHV converter valve hall as the research object, this special speech discusses the construction process of its three-dimensional digital model from the insulation structure of the transformer body. Further, focusing on the outgoing device and bushing structure of converter transformer, this paper introduces the typical structure, the actual valve hall operation environment and the heating theoretical model of high-voltage power equipment under high harmonic load from the perspective of high-voltage power equipment operation, analyzes electro-thermal coupling nonlinear electric field of transformer outgoing device, and optimizes its insulation structure by using RBF neural network and NSGA-II multi-objective optimization algorithm. Focuses on the 3D construction of digital twin model in the outgoing area of converter transformer. Its research method can be extended to key components such as the converter body winding structure, oil paper insulation area and on the load switch. The research results of this paper can provide theoretical guidance and technical reference for the insulation structure design of the converter transformer body, especially for the structural design and operation maintenance of outlet device area, and can provide some theoretical guidance for the on-line analysis of short-term current carrying capacity and long-term aging performance of converter transformer outlet device area.
