The electric power system is one of the most complex machines human beings have ever built. Among the recent issues that arise from this complexity are inadequate power flow control, inadequate reactive power management, and occasional power angle and voltage instabilities. In addition, we have inadequate training for planners/operators and inefficient use of collected data, etc.
Dr. Edris will present a number of advanced technological tools that have been developed and applied to utility transmission grids, to address these issues and resolve many of the transmission grid complexities.? The presented technological concepts address thermal capacity of transmission circuits and substation equipment, power flow control, reactive power management, and increased robustness and integrity of transmission grids.
