This paper presents a communication-assisted fault localization, isolation and restoration method for microgrids based on a multiagent system (MAS). The proposed system comprises distributed agents, located in the middle and at the two ends of a protection section, which will detect a fault through phase angle comparison of current signals at both sides of(More)
This paper details the modeling and development of an improved controller design for a dc flywheel energy storage system (FESS) driving circuit. The driving system is based on a bidirectional buck-boost converter. The modeling of this converter including the parasitic resistances for all the components was carried out. In this model, the equivalent circuit(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of a communication and control infrastructure for smart grid operation. The proposed infrastructure enhances the reliability of the measurements and control network. The advantages of utilizing the data-centric over message-centric communication approach are discussed in the context of smart grid(More)

Standardization in smart grid communications is necessary to facilitate complex operations of modern power system functions. However, the strong coupling between the cyber and physical domains of the contemporary grid exposes the system to vulnerabilities and thus places more burden on standards’ developers. As such, standards need to be continuously(More)
