Title

Reliability modeling for the advanced electric power grid

Author

Ayman Z. Faza

Abstract

"The advanced electric power grid promises a self-healing infrastructure using distributed, coordinated, power electronics control. One promising power electronics device, the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS), can modify the power flow locally within a power grid. Embedded computers within the FACTS devices, along with the links connecting them, form a communication and control network that can dynamically change the grid to achieve higher dependability. The goal is to reroute power distribution in the event of transmission line failure"--Abstract, leaf iii.
