State Estimation

Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


Before the advent of state estimation, the power system operator had responsibility for many real-time control center functions including scheduling generation and interchange, monitoring outages and scheduling alternatives, supervising scheduled outages, scheduling frequency and time corrections, coordinating bias settings, and emergency restoration of the system.
