S-80 Project Summary 

Improved Dynamic Load Modeling Using Power System Measurements for Enhanced Transmission and Distribution System Operation and Planning

Summary The project uses point on wave measurements made in power systems following disturbances of different types and severity to first determine accurate three-phase load composition along distribution feeders. Based on the detailed three-phase load composition characterization obtained, more accurate load compositions for conducting positive-sequence time domain simulations will be developed. The operational and planning benefits of more detailed load compositions in making electric utilities more competitive will be quantitatively evaluated.
