Power Distribution System State Estimation (Energy Engineering) (Hardcover)
State estimation is an enabler for active control of a system, e.g. a network with distributed power generation. State estimation uses data such as real-time measurements, load and production forecasts as inputs to estimate the most likely state at a given moment. The state is the combination of parameter values such voltages, frequencies, current flow, power load and production. The goal of state estimation is to adjust models so that they are closer to observed values and deliver better forecasts. In power systems, this is key to maintaining power quality and operate generation and storage units well. This work, written by international authors from industry and universities, will cover the subject systematically; chapters will start with practical experiences, then cover several modelling and flow calculation models. Use of measurements with varying sampling rates will be covered, and one chapter will focus on low voltage distribution systems.
