Synchrophasor based methods for computing the thevenin equivalent impedance of a transmission network between the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas PanAm
With the increase in complexity of modern electricity grids, the implementation of state-estimators has become a vital aspect of stability and contingency analyses for stable and secure power system operation. Transmission line reactance is an important component in the computation of state-estimators. Two models utilizing real-time synchrophasor data and ERCOT load information are proposed to compute Thevenin equivalent reactance. This thesis presents the results of implementing these methods to estimate the equivalent reactance of a transmission network between The University of Texas at Austin and The University of Texas, PanAm.
