    System-wide disturbances in power systems are a challenging problem for the utility industry because of the large scale and the complexity of the power system. When a major power system disturbance occurs, protection and control actions are required to stop the power system degradation, restore the system to a normal state, and minimize the impact of the disturbance. In some cases, the present con... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a framework based on a differential manifold approach that combines identification and tracing of both saddle node and Hopf bifurcation margin boundaries without calculating any eigenvalues. For a given base case, we first identify either the saddle node or Hopf bifurcation. The Hopf bifurcation is easily detected by observing the sign change of scalar index in the tangent vect...

    The restructuring of the electric power grid has created new control and monitoring requirements for which classical technologies may be inadequate. The most obvious way of building such systems, using TCP connections to link monitoring systems with data sources, gives poor scalability and exhibits instability precisely when information is most urgently required. Astrolabe, Bimodal Multicast, and ... View full abstract»

    In 1916, the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) selected Nikola Tesla as the seventh recipient of the Edison Medal. He was cited for his "early original work in polyphase and high-frequency electrical currents." Tesla's AC induction motor had proved to be a key element in making AC power a viable alternative to the once dominant DC system associated with the name of Thomas A. Edison... View full abstract»
