Real Time Monitoring of Power Grid Stability
Obtaining real time Thevenin equivalent circuits from local power busses
- Rapid measurement of power grid state
- Single time point measurement
- Allows response to fast voltage or phase instabilities
This technology provides a novel method to accurately estimate power grid stability by measuring in real time, with a single time-point, instabilities and drift at a power grid node, such as a power substation.
The algorithm allows an estimation of the Thevenin equivalent of the grid as seen from local substation busses in a power station. Voltage stability, angle stability, system islanding and other predictors of system behavior can be estimated using this technique.
The method can be implemented with current transformers and voltage transformers typically present at power substations or newer phase measuring units.
