Preface

Power system monitoring and control (PSMC) is an important issue in modern electric power system design and operation. It is becoming more significant today due to the increasing size, changing structure, introduction of renewable energy sources, distributed smart/microgrids, environmental constraints, and complexity of power systems.

The wide-area measurement system (WAMS) with phasor measurement units (PMUs) provides key technologies for monitoring, state estimation, system protection, and control of widely spread power systems. A direct, more precise, and accurate monitoring can be achieved by the technique of phasor measurements and global positioning system (GPS) time signal. A proper grasp of the present state with flexible wide-area control and smart operation addresses significant elements to maintain wide-area stability in the complicated grid, with the growing penetration of distributed generation and renewable energy sources.

In response to the existing challenge of integrating advanced metering, computation, communication, and control into appropriate levels of PSMC, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of PSMC understanding, analysis, and realization. The physical constraints and engineering aspects of the PSMC have been fully considered, and developed PSMC strategies are explained using recorded real data from practical WAMS via distributed PMUs and GPS receivers in Japan and Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand). In addition to the ...
