This source-agnostic time domain distance relay uses only single-ended measurements to detect, classify, and locate any fault on the line it monitors while eliminating known weaknesses of distance relays. Recent advances in renewable energy technology allow several hundred megawatts of power to be in a single plant and connect to the electric grid through inverters. All major renewable resources, such…

Situational awareness is critical and important to control room operators for secure and efficient smart grid/power system operation. Continuous data sense-making is critical for ensuring the stability of the power system. This Clemson technology relates to an electrical grid control system and, more particularly, to an improved system and method for grid control using an n-dimensional cellular computational network to provide a situational awareness (SA) framework.
