Real-time power system security assessment

Shafie-Pour, A. R. (1989) Real-time power system security assessment. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



The increasing complexity of modern power systems has led to a greater dependence on automatic control at all levels of operation. Large scale systems of which a power system is a prime example, is an area in which a wide gap exists between theoretical mathematically based research and engineering practice. The research programme at Durham is directed towards bridging this gap by linking some of the available and new theoretical techniques with the practical requirements of on-line computer control in power systems. This thesis is concerned with the assessment of security of power systems in real-time operation. The main objective of this work was to develop a package to be incorporated in the University of Durham On line Control of Electrical Power Systems (OCEPS) suite to cater for network islanding and analyse the features and the feasibility of a real-time 'security package’ for modern energy control centres. The real-time power systems simulator developed at Durham was used to test the algorithms and numerical results obtained are presented.
