Adaptive Network Response to Line Failures in Power Systems

  title={Adaptive Network Response to Line Failures in Power Systems},
  author={Chen Liang and Linqi Guo and Alessandro Zocca and Steven H. Low and Adam Wierman},
—Transmission line failures in power systems prop- agate and cascade non-locally. In this work, we propose an adaptive control strategy that offers strong guarantees in both the mitigation and localization of line failures. Specifically, we leverage the properties of network bridge-block decomposition and a frequency regulation method called the unified control . If the balancing areas over which the unified control operates coincide with the bridge-blocks of the network, the proposed strategy…

Less is More: Real-time Failure Localization in Power Systems

Simulation results show that the novel framework greatly improves the system robustness in terms of the N − 1 security standard, and localizes the impact of initial failures in majority of the load profiles that are examined.

Line Failure Localization of Power Networks Part II: Cut Set Outages

A Simple Path Criterion is established, showing that the propagation pattern due to bridge outages, a special case of cut set failures, are fully determined by the positions in the network of the buses that participate in load balancing.

Line Failure Localization of Power Networks Part I: Non-Cut Outages

Transmission line failures in power systems propagate non-locally, making the control of the resulting outages extremely difficult. In this work, we establish a mathematical theory that characterizes

A Spectral Representation of Power Systems with Applications to Adaptive Grid Partitioning and Cascading Failure Localization

This work presents a comprehensive framework based on spectral graph theory that fully and rigorously captures how multiple simultaneous line failures propagate, distinguishing between non-cut and cut set outages.

Analysis of Failures in Power Grids

The results demonstrate that using the resistance distance and the pseudoinverse of the admittance matrix provides important insights and can support the development of algorithms for designing robust power grids and controlling the evolution of a cascade upon failures.

Optimal Load-Side Control for Frequency Regulation in Smart Grids

This paper presents a comprehensive load-side frequency control mechanism that can maintain the grid within operational constraints and proves that it is globally asymptotically stable and robust to unknown load parameters.

We study algorithms for computing optimal load shedding schedules in the event of a cascading power system failure. The algorithms compute an affine control at the onset of the cascade; the control

Power grid vulnerability to geographically correlated failures — Analysis and control implications

Inspired by methods developed for network-survivability analysis, it is shown how to identify the most vulnerable locations in the network and can indicate potential locations for grid monitoring, and hence, will have impact on the deployment of the smart-grid networking infrastructure.
