Hydro-Que/spl acute/bec's transmission system is among the most extensive and complex transmission networks in North America. The system's design was improved over the last few years using an optimization process based on acquired experience as well as customers' expectations. Hydro-Que/spl acute/bec's transmission system is currently designed in accordance with four major guiding principles based on a successive line of defense concept designed to counter events that are increasingly more… 
Hydro-Québec's defense plan: Present and future
Recent cascading failures in several power systems worldwide have highlighted the necessity to develop new automatic protection systems. Furthermore, economic and environmental considerations
Wide-area monitoring and control at Hydro-Quebec: past, present and future
This paper recalls the 30-year history of wide-area measurements at Hydro-Quebec. At present, a state-of-the art, eight-PMU-based wide-area monitoring system commissioned in 2004 is on line, feeding
Wind Turbine Generator Controls: Meeting Presen t and Future Grid Code Requirements
SUMMARY Wind power represents a growing portion of the energy and power produced in modern electrical power systems. They have to be integrated and interconnected with conventional generation, mostly
IEEE PSS2B versus PSS4B: the limits of performance of modern power system stabilizers
IEEE Std 421.5 as revised by the IEEE excitation system subcommittee will introduce a new type of power system stabilizer model, the multiband power system stabilizers (PSSs). Although it requires
Synchronized Sensing for Wide-Area Situational Awareness of Electrical Grids in Non-Stationary Operating Conditions
TLDR
Enhanced processing tools able to accurately and timely estimate the synchrophasors using extremely short observation intervals are proposed, based on the interpolated discrete Fourier transform that iteratively estimates and compensates the effects of the spectral leakage produced by interfering tones, harmonic or inter-harmonic, and the negative image of the fundamental tone.
PMU-Based Vulnerability Assessment Using Wide- Area Severity Indices and Tracking Modal Analysis
Two techniques based respectively on the transient energy injected by the disturbance into the grid and the tracking damping level of the resulting oscillatory responses are investigated for quickly
Compliance Analysis of PMU Algorithms and Devices for Wide-Area Stabilizing Control of Large Power Systems
For the first time, IEEE Std. C37.118.1-2011 now provides metrics for PMU dynamic performance in terms of classes P and M filter designs. This paper attempts to determine whether fulfilling these
Engineering Asset Management at Times of Major, Large-Scale Instabilities and Disruptions
Contemporary organizations function in a complex business and operational environment composed of closely interdependent systems. They are also complex by their internal structure, management and
Colombian National Defense System against Large Scale Events
The Colombian National Defense System against Large Scale Events (SIRENA for its Spanish Name) seeks to implement new generation System Integrity Protection Schemes (SIPS) through the deployment of a
Development of software for modelling decentralized intelligent systems for security monitoring and control in power systems
With rapidly increasing complexity of power grids in Europe, North America and Asia, liberalization of electricity markets and increasing penetration of renewable energy, the risk of large-scale
