Electric power failures -- Mathematical models


In power systems, frequency deviation from nominal value can occur due to reasons such as loss of generation, loss of load, or major faults in the grid. Such frequency fluctuations can lead to serious subsequent outages and damages to both end-user and utility equipment. Therefore, a proper frequency deviation detection methodology must be in place to effectively identify frequency events in a timely manner. This manuscript provides a comparative analysis between two frequency deviation detection algorithms. One is based on signal processing and statistical analysis. The other is a regression-based algorithm. Both of these algorithms have multiple adjustable parameters, making them highly tunable for different Balancing Authorities.
