    Many countries are restructuring their electric power industries (EPIs) from regulated monopolies to a competitive market. Competition is expected to increase productivity and decrease production costs and the price of electricity. Countries are at different stages of the restructuring process, and the process is not finished. In spite of a wide variety of possible structures, four main electricit... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses a model-based substation automation application for advanced data availability. The SuperCalibrator concept provides a basic technology to filter all substation data that are readily available by the substation automation scheme. The SuperCalibrator is conceptually very simple. It is a state estimator using a detailed three-phase breaker-oriented instrumentation-inclusive subs... View full abstract»
