Due to the difficulty in power network reinforcement and the interconnection of more distributed generations, fault current level has become a serious problem in transmission and distribution system operations. The utilization of fault current limiters (FCLs) in power system provides an effective way to suppress fault currents and result in considerable(More)
To deal with the deregulated challenges in future power system operations, Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) has taken a strategic approach to implement an extensive Distribution Automation (DA) project including feeder automation (FA), trouble call management, load management, and remote metering functions in its Tai-Chung District. The project was completed(More)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system is looked upon as one of the top ten important technologies in the 20<sup>th</sup> century. Industrial automation application is one of the key issues in developing RFID. Therefore, this paper designs and implements a RFID-based autonomous mobile car for more extensively application of RFID systems. The(More)
The installation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is looked upon as a bridge to the construction of smart grids; especially, while most of the power meters are still mechanical ones without digitization. An AMI consists of smart power meter, communication technology, meter data management, and associated software and hardware. After AMI has been(More)
—The use of phasor angle measurements provided by phasor measurement units (PMUs) in fault detection is regarded as a promising method in identifying locations of power line outages. However, communication errors or system malfunctions may introduce errors to the measurements and thus yield bad data. Most of the existing methods on line outage(More)
