Abstract

Power system state estimation constitutes one of the critical functions that are executed at the control centers. Its optimal performance is required in order to operate the power system in a safe, secure and economic manner. State estimators (SE) process the available measurements by taking into account the information about the network model and parameters. The quality of estimated results will depend on the measurements, the assumed network model and its parameters. Hence. SE requires to use various techniques to ensure validity of the results and to detect and identify sources of errors. The Weighted Least Squares (WLS) method is the most popular technique of SE. This thesis provides solutions to enhance the WLS algorithm in order to increase the performance of SE. The gain and the Jacobian matrices associated with the basic algorithm require large storage and have to be evaluated at every iteration, resulting in more computation time. The elements of the SE Jacobian matrix are processed one-by-one based on the available measurements, and the Jacobian matrix, H is updated suitably, avoiding all the power flow equations. thus simplifying the development of the Jacobian. The results obtained proved that the suggested method takes lesser computational time compared with the available NRSE method, particularly when the size of the network becomes larger. The uncertainty in analog measurements could occur in a real time system. Thus, the higher weighting factor or wrongly assigned weighting factor to the measurement could lead to flag the measurements as bad. This thesis describes a pre-screening process to identify the bad measurements and the measurement weights before performing the WLS estimation technique employed in SE. The autoregressive (AR) techniques. Burg and Modified Covariance (MC), are used to predict the data and at the same time filtering the logical weighting factors that have been assigned to the identified bad measurements. The results show that AR methods managed to accurately predict the data and filter the weigthage factors for the bad measurements. Also the WLS algorithm is modified to include Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) parameters. The developed methods are successfully tested on IEEE standard systems and the Sabah Electricy Sdn. Bhd. (SESB) system without and with UPFC. The developed program is suitable either to estimate the UPFC controller parameters or to estimate these parameter values in order to achieve the given control specifications in addition to the power system state variables.
