A GENETIC BASED TECHNIQUE FOR THE DETERMINATION OF POWER SYSTEM TOPOLOGICAL OBSERVABILITY

S. Vazquez-Rodriguez, R. J. Duro

Abstract


In this paper we have addressed the problem of observability of power systems from the point of view of topological observability and using genetic algorithms for its determination. The objective is to find a way to determine if a system is observable by establishing if a spanning tree of the system that verifies certain properties with regards to the use of available measurements can be obtained. To this end we have developed a genotype-phenotype transformation scheme for genetic algorithms that permits using very simple genetic operators over integer based chromosomes which after a building process can become very complex trees. The procedure was successfully applied to standard benchmark systems and we present some results for one of them.
