Electric Power Grid Monitoring with Synchronized Phasor Measurements. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, January 2009, Pages: 168
The phasor measurement unit (PMU) is considered to be
one of the most important measuring devices in the
future of power systems. The distinction comes from
its unique ability to provide synchronized phasor
measurements of voltages and currents from widely
dispersed locations in an electric power grid. This
book addresses two major challenges attendant to this
technology: PMU device placement and applications. It
teaches how to complement PMU data with decision
trees to advance voltage security monitoring.
Applications resulting from integrating phasor data
with SCADA/EMS data are treated in detail; from
enhancing the quality of existing estimators to
revolutionizing it to phasor-based state estimation.
Graph theoretic algorithms and the new concept of
depth of unobservability are introduced for
systematic placement of PMUs around the network.
These techniques are extended to solve the problem of
phased deployment of PMUs considering limitations in
communication links. The topics should help shed
some light in this exciting measurement technology,
and should be useful to professionals and students
alike who want to advance their understanding of
synchronized phasor measurements.
