This paper provides a methodology to characterize the accuracy of PMU data (GPS-synchronized) and the applicability of this data for monitoring system stability via visualization methods. GPS-synchronized equipment (PMUs) is in general higher precision equipment as compared to typical SCADA systems. Conceptually, PMU data are time tagged with precision… (More)
A framework of security-constrained adequacy evaluation (SCAE) based on analytical techniques is proposed to assess the ability of a bulk power system to supply electric load while satisfying security constraints. It encompasses three main steps: (a) critical contingency selection, (b) effects analysis, and (c) reliability index computation. Effects… (More)
Contingency simulation is an essential but computationally demanding procedure for power system security assessment, reliability evaluation, and real time operation. Simulation methods based on the traditional power flow (TPF) model usually suffer from lack of the realistic system model and slow convergence. To solve such problems, this paper proposes a… (More)
– A comprehensive model for stochastic load flow analysis in electric power systems is proposed for the purpose of estimating the statistics of bus voltage magnitudes , circuit currents and transmission line power flows. The proposed method is driven by a realistic non-conforming stochastic electric load model, defined in terms of few independent stochastic… (More)
