Sensing solutions for assessing and monitoring power systems

I.A. Hiskens,    University of Michigan, USA

Abstract:

The chapter describes sensing systems that underpin the safe and reliable operation of large-scale power systems. It provides an overview of power system structure and operation, identifying the important characteristics of generation, transmission, and distribution. A discussion of substations highlights their vital role in establishing network interconnections and providing measurements of network quantities. These functions are fundamental to the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that facilitate power system monitoring and operation. A discussion of sensing equipment and systems considers current and ...
