Advances in sensing, communication and computing have potential to refine, or even redefine the conception and implementation of Power System Protection. Increased computing power at low cost has provided opportunities to implement more computation-intensive
Advancing the State of the Art in Power System Protection:
· System Integrity Protection Schemes based on Wide Area measurement and analysis.
· Use of Wide Area Measurement to augment/supervise local protection.
· Protection based on real time evaluation of transient stability.
· Adaptive protection and protection schemes.
· Non-conventional sensors for enhanced protection.
· Modeling of relays, relaying systems, and instrument transformers.
· Localization of high impedance faults in distribution systems.
· Event detection, identification, and location based on system wide measurements & data analytics.
· Automated data synchronization, integration, disturbance analysis, setting coordination, and testing.
· Anticipation/mitigation of incipient faults.
· Secure communication infrastructure, interfaces, and protocols for protection.
· System design, sensor and communication technology, testing techniques, and reliability analysis.
· Substation automation, and interoperability.Submission Guidelines
This special issue solicits original work that must not be under consideration for publication in other venues. Two-page extended abstracts are solicited for the first round of reviews. Abstracts should clearly state the novelty and contribution to the state of the art, summarize the proposed approach and test systems/procedures, and convey the expected outcome, preferably supported with initial results. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit the full papers in the second round. Authors should refer to the IEEE PES Transactions author guidelines at http://www.ieee-pes.org/
