Synchronized phasor measurements have become a mature technology with several international manufacturers offering commercial phasor measurement units (PMUs) which meet the prevailing industry standard for synchrophasors. With the occurrence of major blackouts in many power systems around the world, the value of data provided by PMUs has been recognized,(More)
A key input parameter to governor feedback control and stability protection of generators is the angle of the induced voltage internal to the generator. Current practice is to estimate this value using measurements from the terminals of the generator and mathematical models. This project aims to develop a system that would directly measure the internal(More)
This paper highlights three elements of work designed to explore the integration of distributed generation (DG) technologies into the existing utility system. The social science members of our interdisciplinary group report on the potential and real advantages of using small-scale, decentralized technologies to generate power. They also describe many(More)
Current restructuring of the electric utility industry has aroused vast interest in emerging distributed generation (DG) technologies. Some of the most obvious benefits of DG include, but are not limited to the following [1]: a) Emergency backup during sustained utility outages, b) Value of energy savings through peak shaving, and other ratereducing means,(More)
This paper presents the idea of a partitioned linear state estimator (PLSE) as an alternative to the classical linear state estimator (LSE). PLSE is found to be especially useful for performing state estimation in large systems comprising of multiple entities. The best example of this is different utilities functioning under an independent system operator(More)
A growing dependence on foreign oil, along with a heightened concern over the environmental impact of personal transportation, had led the U. S. government to investigate and sponsor research into advanced transportation concepts. One of these future technologies is the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), typically featuring both an internal combustion engine(More)
