Abstract:
With the occurrence of major blackouts in many power systems around the world, the use of phasor measurement units (PMUs) for post-mortem analysis, adaptive protection, system protection schemes, and state estimation has gained a lot of attention. This has made the installation of PMUs on power transmission networks an increasingly important task. With PMU installation and deployment cost ranging from $10k to $70k (depending on the utility, location, and availability of communication channels) placing PMUs in the optimum locations is one of the first steps of a wide-area monitoring system [1]. Therefore, a variety of algorithms have been developed to determine the minimal number of PMUs and their optimal placement for installation to make a system observable. This thesis addresses the placement of PMUs on a portion of the Henares Corridor.
