Combined Transmission and Distribution State-Estimation for Future Electric Grids

  title={Combined Transmission and Distribution State-Estimation for Future Electric Grids},
  author={Amritanshu Pandey and Shimiao Li and Lawrence T. Pileggi},
Proliferation of grid resources on the distribution network along with the inability to forecast them accurately will render the existing methodology of grid operation and control untenable in the future. Instead, a more distributed yet coordinated approach for grid operation and control will emerge that models and analyzes the grid with a larger footprint and deeper hierarchy to unify control of disparate T&D grid resources under a common framework. Such approach will require AC… Expand

Steady-State Simulation for Combined Transmission and Distribution Systems
This paper shows that modeling both the T&D grid elements in terms of currents and voltages using an equivalent circuit framework enables simulation of combined positive sequence networks of the transmission grids with three-phase networks ofThe distribution grids without loss of generality. Expand
Global state estimation for whole transmission and distribution networks
The weighted least squares (WLS) model for global state estimation (GSE) is presented for estimating the global consistent state in the whole network and a novel master–slave-splitting (MSS) iterative method is developed for solving the hybrid GSE problem. Expand

Exact Topology and Parameter Estimation in Distribution Grids with Minimal Observability
A novel algorithm is suggested for learning the topology of distribution grid and estimating impedances of the operational lines with minimal observational requirements-it provably reconstructs topology and impedances using voltage and injection measured only at the terminal (end-user) nodes of the distribution grid.

Master–Slave-Splitting Based Distributed Global Power Flow Method for Integrated Transmission and Distribution Analysis
A global unified power flow solution to support an integrated analysis for both transmission and distribution grids is proposed, and an equivalent method is proposed to improve the convergence of the MSS-based GPF calculation for distribution grids that include loops. Expand

Fully Distributed State Estimation for Wide-Area Monitoring Systems
The novelty of the proposed approach lies in that the assumption of local observability of all the control areas is no longer needed, the communication topology can be different than the physical topology of the power interconnection and no coordinator is required for each local control area to achieve provable convergence of the entire power system's states to those of the centralized estimation.

Distributed Optimal Power Flow for Smart Microgrids
To ensure scalability with respect to the number of nodes, robustness to isolated communication outages, and data privacy and integrity, the proposed SDP is solved in a distributed fashion by resorting to the alternating direction method of multipliers and guarantees faster convergence compared to competing alternatives.
