Synchrophasor-Data Analytics for a More Resilient Electric Power System (S-74)

Summary The aim of this proposal is to develop wide area measurement systems (WAMS)-based tools and algorithms for monitoring, protection, and control of the electric power system. The specific topics of focus that we focus are: faster islanding detection schemes and online asset health monitoring (monitoring application); combating cyber-attacks by developing data analytics algorithms that enhance system resiliency (protection application); increasing situational awareness when system has large penetration of renewable generation (control application). Synthetically-generated simulated data will be used to test the tools while synchrophasor data obtained from the field will be used to validate the tool’s performance for real-world applications.
