The objective of this NSF-CPS Synergy proposal is to develop a
distributed algorithmic framework, supported by a highly
fault-tolerant software system, for executing critical
transmission-level operations of the North American power grid using
gigantic volumes of Synchrophasor data.
Our primary task, therefore, will be to develop parallel computational
methods for solving real-time wide-area monitoring and control
problems with analytical investigation of their stability, convergence
and robustness properties, followed by their implementation and
testing against extraneous malicious attacks using our WAMS-RTDS
testbed at NC State.
In particular, we will address three critical research problems,
namely (1) wide-area oscillation detection, (2) Synchrophasor-based
transient stability assessment, and (3) voltage stability monitoring.
