Control with Phasor Feedback

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


Prior to the introduction of real-time phasor measurements, power system control was essentially used by local signals. Feedback control with such locally available measurements is widely used in controlling machines. In other situations, control action was taken on the basis of a mathematical model of the system without actual measurement of the system.
