—Recently, the authors proposed a clustering approach based on the Fuzzy C-medoid algorithm (FCMdd), for segregating large power systems into coherent electric areas centered around a representative so-called medoid-bus. This bus was shown to be a natural location for PMU in the context of wide-area measurement system (WAMS) configuration for of dynamic(More)
In Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) optical networks, the failure of network resources (e.g., fiber link or node) can disrupt the transmission of information to several destination nodes on a light-tree based multicast sessions. Thus, it is essential to protect multicast sessions by reserving resources along back-up trees. So that if primary tree(More)
Distance relays are blocked during power swing. However, if a fault occurs during power swing, it should be detected and unblocking function should be invoked to clear the fault as soon as possible. Detection of fault during power swing is a challenging task. The technology of synchronized phasor measurements has come of age and simplified the differential(More)
The apparent impedance seen by a distance relay may fall within its operating zone during power swing. This may cause the relay to trip unnecessarily. To avoid unintended trip operation during such conditions, a power swing blocking function is utilized in distance relays. However, if a fault occurs during power swing, the relay should detect the fault and(More)
Mechanically switched capacitor with damping network (MSCDN) is a low cost economical device used in power systems to serve the dual purpose of supplying reactive power at the fundamental frequency as well as to eliminate the unwanted harmonics when tuned at the desired harmonic frequency. However, during switching in a high voltage A.C grid, various(More)
