Wide area monitoring, protection and control systems (WAMPACs) have been recognised as the most promising enabling technologies to meet the challenges of modern electric power transmission systems, where reliability, economics, environmental and other social objectives must be balanced to optimize the grid assets and satisfy growing electrical demand. This book provides an overview of this emerging technology.

Topics covered include;

  • Wide Area Measurement System: The Enabler for Smarter Transmission
  • Reliability-Based Substation Monitoring Systems Placement
  • System Integrity Protection Scheme Based on PMU Technology
  • New Methodologies for Large-Scale Power System Dynamic Analysis
  • A Fuzzy-based Knowledge Discovery Paradigm for on-line Optimal Power Flow Analysis
  • False data injection attacks and countermeasures for wide area measurement system
