  • Machine Intelligence in the Grid

    The appellation smart in smart grid conjures up the notion of a power grid with intelligence, in the form of artificial or machine intelligence. If that is indeed the goal, then power grid communication and networking must be designed to support such intelligence in the long run. Techniques involving artificial intelligence and machine learning for the power grid are explored while highlighting the role of communication and networking. Communication itself will benefit from advances in machine intelligence. Machine-to-machine communication, the semantic web, cognitive radio, and cognitive networking serve as attempts to incorporate intelligence into communication and are extensions of the active networking concept. The fundamental nature of complexity and communication in the form of active networking and communication complexity play a role in power system information theory as the power grid itself becomes more active.

  • Day¿¿?Ahead Scheduling: Reserve Determination and Valuation

    In power system operations, reserves are traditionally used to restore the balance between power supply and demand after a power system equipment failure or emergency. Reserves are procured by the system operator as mandated by the regulator. It is important to note that reserves are normally provided by non¿¿?stochastic units that produce energy. Reserve and energy are different commodities provided by the same production facilities: the generators. This chapter provides an overview on how to optimally procure reserves using both stochastic programming and robust optimization procedures. As the stochastic production units take up a growing share in the electricity production mix, it becomes more important for the Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs) to better model the stochasticity and accordingly procures reserves. As a result, stochastic programming and robust optimization procedures are particularly well motivated in reserve determination. The chapter analyzes the way in which reserve needs and reserve cost increase with renewable integration and renewable variability.

  • Transmission

    The purpose and benefits of the power transmission system are reviewed, as well as communication typically used with the transmission system. It is important to understand the progression of the transmission system before considering how it will evolve in the future. Power grid system components that play a role in the transmission system and throughout the power grid are introduced, including the control center, transformers, capacitors, relays, substations, and inverters; the better one understands the needs and requirements of these devices for communication, the better the communication network can be designed and implemented. Power system concepts such as frequency analysis, the phasor, and the per-unit system are introduced. Power systems control has typically been designed to sense and control locally; explicit communication is avoided to maximize reliability. Networked control is introduced and evaluated as a potential communication alternative for control. A description of the challenges in the transmission system, such as synchronization, reducing power loss, and mitigating the impact of geomagnetic storms is given. The promise of wireless power transmission is introduced, to be picked up in more detail in later chapters.

  • State Estimation and Stability

    State estimation and stability are fundamental components of power grid control and are also used in communication systems; both topics are reviewed with particular emphasis on application in power systems. Networked control extends control of the power grid over communication networks and must overcome challenges that variable performance and reliability of the communication network impose upon the control system. While state estimation and stability are well understood when implemented via centralized processing, the scale and reliability requirements of the power grid require that they be implemented using distributed processing. Thus, distributed state estimation is explained as a more scalable and fault-tolerant approach. The need for stability occurs in many forms throughout the power grid. One aspect of stability is related to the high penetration of distributed generation sources. Many moderate- or low-power generators will lack the stable momentum of a single, large, centralized generator. Solutions to stability and the corresponding communication requirements are discussed.

  • Improved Market Efficiency Via Transmission Switching and Outage Evaluation in System Operations

    This chapter investigates the improvement of market efficiency via transmission switching and outage evaluation in system operations. It discusses the background of and challenges in power system operations and reviews the basic dispatch model for market clearing. The chapter describes the state¿¿?of¿¿?the¿¿?art process of outage coordination and a measure of economic evaluation of transmission outages. It explores the concept of optimal transmission switching and the enhancement of the dispatch model to incorporate transmission switching within the context of a security¿¿?constrained economic dispatch algorithm. The chapter proposes a new criterion for selecting candidates for transmission¿¿?line switching based on production cost (PC). It also proposes a new method of identifying a limited set of transmission line candidates for switching that is combined with other selection criteria in order to achieve a better market surplus within a reasonable time frame. The chapter illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed method using a practical large¿¿?scale power system with numerical examples.

  • Power System Control and Estimation in a Competitive Environment

    Electric power grids are machines that span continents, with dynamics that are correspondingly complex. Further complications to the operation of power networks have now arisen in many parts of the world as a consequence of the deregulation and competition underway in the industry. Vertical integration, centralized control, and conservative operation in the past helped ensure stability and reliability in power supply. In a competitive, deregulated environment, in which none of these strategies is feasible, assuring reliability is considerably more difficult. The synchronous ac power grid is a unique entity in that the rotating generators connected to the grid are all dynamically coupled, regardless of geographical or topological separation. Imbalance of generation and consumption has instaneous ripple effects on all generators and loads. In the past, with conservative approaches to power plant operation, power grid loading, and the overall network control, power system behavior was sufficiently well behaved that linear control design proved reasonably effective. Today, nonlinear, decentralized control and optimization techniques are needed. Several new technologies are being explored in this context. High-sampling rate sensors and time synchronization via the global positioning system (GPS) may permit state estimations of greater accuracy. Flexible ac transmission devices (FACTS), especially within the so-called universal power flow controllers, promise substantially greater control over the transmission systems, permitting network operators to route power independently of network impedance characteristics. New algorithmic technologies are also under active investigation, including agent-based modeling and optimization and randomized algorithms.

    This chapter contains sections titled: Societal Benefits of Electricity Origin of the Industry The Development of the National Electric Power Grid The Golden Age Global Warming Crisis and Concerns about Carbon Emissions Restructuring, Competition, and the Industry Ownership Structure

  • Distribution

    The distribution system must partition large amounts of power into relatively small amounts for many different consumers. Techniques to increase efficiency, protect the public from power faults, and self-heal require challenging and unique approaches. While the general rule of local sensing and control applies to the distribution system, communication through the distribution system has a long history, using techniques such as distribution line carrier for applications like automatic meter reading, protection, and many other distribution system applications introduced here. As more communication and control are incorporated into the power grid, the closer the grid can come to its operating limits. However, this can make the system more brittle; brittle system analysis is introduced as a means of studying this phenomena and its impact on the communication system.
