The course is focused on the application of novel sensor and ICT technology for improvement of power system monitoring, protection and control. It includes the Synchronized Measurement Technology based Wide Area Monitoring, Protection and Control (WAMPAC) system.

The main topics are as follows:

  • Major building blocks of WAMPAC systems
  • Off-line and on-line WAMPAC applications
  • Methods for testing WAMPAC systems
  • Practical WAMPAC applications including the discussions on the opportunities for implementation of WAMPAC systems

 Day 1: Introduction of Smart Grid and WAMPC

  • Smart grid and WAMPAC intro
  • The evolution of energy control centers
  • Power system stability and control
  • SMT based state estimation
  • Off line Apps
  • Real time apps

 Day 2: RTDS based Demonstration

Some demonstrations and exercises on the application of WAMPC will be given in this course in laboratory. A Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) and LabVIEW/MATLAB based simulation platform (or DIgSILENT) will be used for basic training, demonstration and course exercises.

Prerequisites: Knowledge in Power System Analysis and real time digital simulator, and skill in using MATLAB

Form of evaluation: Students will be given a Coursework. It is MATLAB (and RTDS) based and require programming and analytical skills.

Prerequisites: Knowledge in Power System Analysis, real time digital simulator, DIgSILENT, and skill in using MATLAB

Organizer: Assistant Professor Zhou Liu - Aalborg University

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
