Power System Security Boundary Visualization Using Intelligent Techniques , Guozhong Zhou

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In the open access environment, one of the challenges for utilities is that typical operating conditions tend to be much closer to security boundaries. Consequently, security levels for the transmission network must be accurately assessed and easily identified on-line by system operators;Security assessment through boundary visualization provides the operator with knowledge of system security levels in terms of easily monitorable pre-contingency operating parameters. The traditional boundary visualization approach results in a two-dimensional graph called a nomogram. However, an intensive labor involvement, inaccurate boundary representation, and little flexibility in integrating with the energy management system greatly restrict use of nomograms ...

Profiting From Competition: Financial Tools For Electric Generation Companies , Charles William Richter Jr.

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Regulations governing the operation of electric power systems in North America and many other areas of the world are undergoing major changes designed to promote competition. This process of change is often referred to as deregulation. Participants in deregulated electricity systems may find that their profits will greatly benefit from the implementation of successful bidding strategies. While the goal of the regulators may be to create rules which balance reliable power system operation with maximization of the total benefit to society, the goal of generation companies is to maximize their profit, i.e., return to their shareholders. The majority of ...
