State estimation is one of the most important functions in power system operation and control. This area is concerned with the overall monitoring, control, and contingency evaluation of power systems. It is mainly aimed at providing a reliable estimate of system voltages. State estimator information flows to control centers, where critical decisions are made concerning power system design and operations. This valuable resource provides thorough coverage of this area, helping professionals overcome challenges involving system quality, reliability, security, stability, and economy. Engineers are introduced to new techniques for their work in the field, including current measurements and phasor measurement units. Moreover, the book includes a novel discussion on state estimation for distributed systems. Professionals find expert guidance for their current projects and discover cutting-edge developments that will help prepare them for work with future energy management systems.
