Graph Theoretic Approach to Solve Measurement Placement Problem for Power System State Estimation
The meter placement problem involves selection of meters, number, type and place. This paper describes graph theoretic approach to solve the measurement placement problem for power system state estimation. The measurement configuration is designed for IEEE 14 bus system. Utilizing the proposed measurement system configuration the network observability is tested for P-δ and Q-V models by triangular factorization of the gain matrix. The designed metering scheme assures network observability and accomplishes better accuracy and bad data processing requirements for state estimator. The developed method can be used as measurement systems planning tool for power system state estimators.
