More efficient monitoring in distribution grids (English)
SCADA is the primary system for control and monitoring of distribution grids. As the expectations on how the grid must operate changes with the increased use of renewable energy sources, it also requires new methods of monitoring. Phasor Measurement Units (PMU) measures the phase angle and amplitude synchronously with GPS. A collaboration between U.C Berkeley and Power Standard Lab researches the possibilities of implementing synchrophasors in distribution grids. These devices are called micro-PMU and will provide similar services available for transmission grids, though adapted for lower voltage levels. Synchrophasors are useful in the development of a smarter distribution network, which consequently makes them interesting for the Swedish electricity market.
Martin Gahr, a student at Berkeley / ETH, has developed a method to determine the topology of a distribution grid using micro-PMU's. The method compares calculated values from SCADA with values from micro-PMU's. The smallest difference between the two readings clarifies the topology. In this thesis the method is used to study an existing distribution grid in central parts of a medium-sized Swedish city. The method gives a satisfactory result when it is implemented on the mashed parts of the distribution grid. There are also indications that micro-PMU's must not be placed at every node to provide a reliable result. Although the method seems to be working on mashed parts of a Swedish distribution grid, it is not particulary interesting to implement the method in reality.
