Role of advanced instrumentation in monitoring, control and protection applications in power systems. Effects and limitations of: Instrument Transformer, signal conditioning circuits, analog to digital (A/D) converters and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chips, time synchronization and sampling, output circuits and devices, and communication channels. Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), protection algorithms, phasor and frequency measurements.
Application of state of the art digital devices for metering, protection and control of power systems is an important field of research in power system monitoring and control. This subject has a far-reaching influence on many diverse fields such as protection, state estimation and hierarchical control of power systems. This course will give students a firsthand knowledge of this area of research and development.
