  • This paper presents the application of Kalman Filtering algorithm for tracking the power system voltage magnitude, the rate of change of the frequency, the frequency deviation as well as the voltage phase angle, when the frequency of the voltage signal varies linearly with the time during the data window size. The proposed algorithm uses the digitized samples of the voltage signal at the relay locations. Effects of sampling rate, data window size and the harmonics contaminating the voltage signal on the performance of the algorithm are studied. Furthermore, effects of the noise level are also investigated. A sample of themore » results obtained is reported in this paper.« less
  • A diagnostic system has been developed that analyzes a local power range monitor signal to determine the global system stability characteristics of an operating boiling water reactor (BWR). The monitor identifies the emergent system behavior within the power signal using an {open_quotes}M-ary{close_quotes} (e.g., 4) hypothesis testing scheme. Each hypothesis corresponds to a specific decay ratio (DR). A parallel bank of discrete-time Kalman filters (each with their own, slightly different version of the system model) is used as a basis for the detection. The model producing the maximum {open_quotes}a posteriori{close_quotes} probability (MAP) provides the best estimate of the system stability, i.e.,more » the DR.« less
  • As electricity demand continues to grow and renewable energy increases its penetration in the power grid, realtime state estimation becomes essential for system monitoring and control. Recent development in phasor technology makes it possible with high-speed time-synchronized data provided by Phasor Measurement Units (PMU). In this paper we present a two-stage Kalman filter approach to estimate the static state of voltage magnitudes and phase angles, as well as the dynamic state of generator rotor angles and speeds. Kalman filters achieve optimal performance only when the system noise characteristics have known statistical properties (zero-mean, Gaussian, and spectrally white). However in practicemore » the process and measurement noise models are usually difficult to obtain. Thus we have developed the Adaptive Kalman Filter with Inflatable Noise Variances (AKF with InNoVa), an algorithm that can efficiently identify and reduce the impact of incorrect system modeling and/or erroneous measurements. In stage one, we estimate the static state from raw PMU measurements using the AKF with InNoVa; then in stage two, the estimated static state is fed into an extended Kalman filter to estimate the dynamic state. Simulations demonstrate its robustness to sudden changes of system dynamics and erroneous measurements.« less
