Abstract

The purpose of security assessment is to verify the security of the current state of the system and find the secure regions within which the system can operate. In operations, a secure system involves respecting all operating criteria at pre- and post- contingency conditions. Operating limits include thermal, voltage and angle limits as well as all forms of stability. This thesis presents a computationally efficient and extremely fast method of computing real-time thermal security operating limits (SOLs) for any line imposed by reliability criteria for NERC's class B (i.e., N-1) contingencies. The method makes use of linear sensitivity factors and is programmed in VC++ and integrated with the AREVA dispatch training simulator.
