Project abstract

With vast renewable energy generation being applied into the electric power network, it increasingly brings more challenges for system operation and control. As the fundamental function of power system monitoring and control, state estimation thereby urgently needs to be adapted to the new challenges and provide a faster and more accurate solution.

In this project, we will develop new paradigms and models for hybrid AC and DC networks state estimation (SE) and implement the developed SE paradigms into real SE platform to demonstrate the "Real-Time Wide-Area State Estimation of Hybrid AC and DC Grids".

Summary of work

2015. A PMU-based state estimation algorithm has been developed; a classic HVDC link model and a point-to-point VSC-HVDC model have been developed and included into the network model for state estimation; several practical issues for the PMU-based state estimation, for instance, system observability and measurement redundancy, measurement noise, and angle bias detection and correction, have been considered and studied in the proposed state estimator.

2017. Pseudo-dynamic network modeling approach is proposed. As a new network modeling algorithm for state estimation, it helps to improve state estimation accuracy during both steady state and transient conditions without increasing the computational burden. In addition, the proposed modeling approach is applied to networks containing both a STATCOM and a VSC-HVDC to demonstrate how to develop and apply a pseudo-dynamic state estimation model. A systematic mechanism to quantify the PMU measurement noise variance is proposed, which composes three steps—off-line simulation, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, and telemetry data. It provides a statistical relation between the inputs and outputs of PMUs for various input signals in off-line simulation, evaluates the impact of including real PMUs via hardware-in-the-loop simulation, and proposes two methods to separate process and measurement noises in telemetry data.
