The talk will present some research conducted at RPI on the use of synchronized phasor measurements to improve the reliable operation of power systems. Phasor measurement units (PMUs) can provide 30/50/60 samples per second of power system phasor data with both magnitude and phase values. The data can be time-tagged with GPS timing signal such that phasors can be synchronized across wide regions of large power systems. Such a capability would allow the visualization of power system dynamics resulting from large disturbances such as generator trips. The presentation will be in two parts. The first part is on phasor computation. The second part is on applications such as disturbance propagation, disturbance recognition, phasor state estimation, and energy function analysis.
Joe Chow received his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. After working in General Electric power systems in Schenectady, he joined Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1987. He is a professor of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering and the RPI Campus Director of the CURENT ERC. His research interests include power system dynamics and control, synchronized phasor data, voltage stability, and control of renewable resources. He is a fellow of IEEE and a past recipient of the Donald Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council, the Control Systems Technology Award from the IEEE Control Systems Society, and the IEEE Charles Concordia Power System Engineering Award from the IEEE Power and Energy Society.
