Prof. Luke Dosiek: September 26, 2019: Recent Advances in Power System Measurement-Based Stability Assessment
The wide deployment of phasor measurement units (PMU) that has occurred in recent years has enabled the use of synchrophasors for the continuous monitoring of the electromechanical modal properties of the system using algorithms known as mode meters. Indeed, the damping of the system modes are indicators of the system stability. This presentation first examines the expression for the Cramer-Rao Bound on the frequency and damping of a particular mode to gain insight into how the accuracy of a mode meter is affected by various power system properties. Next, strategies for creating a mode meter that is robust to power system disturbances are discussed. Finally, some practical considerations are given to the deployment of mode meters in both the bulk power system, as well as in microgrids such as the one here at Union.
