This paper presents a new distributed state estimation method for multiarea power systems. Each area performs its own state estimation, using local measurements, and exchanges border information (estimated boundary states and measurements) at a coordination state estimator, which computes the system-wide state. Furthermore, observability and bad data analysis are accomplished in a distributed manner. The proposed method is illustrated with the IEEE 14-bus system. Test results with the IEEE 118-bus system are given.
