Title: Pre-Commercial Demonstration of Direct Non-Iterative State Estimator (DNSE+)

The objective of this DOE co-funded project is to demonstrate functionality and performance of a production-grade Direct Non-iterative State Estimator (DNSE) through its integration with NYPA’s Energy Management System (EMS) and an enhanced Real Time Dynamics Monitoring System (RTDMS) synchrophasor platform from Electric Power Group (EPG). A production-grade DNSE aims to overcome a major obstacle to the operational use of synchrophasor data in Synchro-Phasor Management Systems (SPMS) by providing SPMS applications with a consistent and a complete synchrophasor data foundation in the same way that a traditional EMS State Estimator (SE) provides to EMS applications. Specifically, the DNSE uses synchrophasor measurements and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) measurements, together with the complete power system model, to simultaneously obtain the complete state of the entire utility’s operating model at rates that are close to the synchrophasor data rates. The full system coverage property is what distinguishes the DNSE from the linear synchrophasor SEs (which cover only parts of the operating model that are visible through synchrophasor measurements), and DNSE differs from traditional EMS SE in that the solution is obtained without iterations, without initial values (hence the “direct” in the name), and at a much higher execution rate. This presentationmore » provides an overview of the project objectives, a brief description of the main tasks including the development work to productize and optimize DNSE from its current MATLAB code base, RTDMS enhancement for interfacing with the DNSE, factory acceptance testing, field installation, testing and demonstration, as well as the current status of the project execution.« less
