Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T The vector Z that minimizes the function f(Z) will be the solution to the problem. The minimization can be done through iterative based methods. In this the Gauss- Newton method has been used. The goal is to minimize error in a certain no of measurement and we can define the function and minimize it:

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T In order to compare the accuracy of the three-point and the multipoint algorithm, some case studies have been done to investigate the sensitivity of the two algorithms to the measurement noise. For this purpose, several simulation case studies have been prepared and different random noise levels have been added to the measured voltages and currents.
By using four different numbers of points have been applied to calculate the system parameters. To calculate each plotted value in Fig. , 300 cases have been run and the estimation errors have been calculated for each case and then the average has been plotted. The error is calculated as follows:

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T In Fig. the accuracy of calculated Rs and Xs is plotted as a function of SNR for the three-point and multipoint algorithms.
The simulation results in Fig. show that increasing the number of points used for calculations reduces the sensitivity of the algorithm to the measurement noise.
This assumption is valid while all the system side parameters remain constant.

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T Practical Consideration:
Disturbance Side Detection: The proposed three-point algorithm can certainly determine the disturbance side for the measurements. Defining Vi = Vxi + Vyi taking the square of both sides of (5), we can rewrite them as follows:
Using the three equations, we can eliminate Es from the equations and calculate Xs as a function of Rs, so that

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T Equation (15) provides a simple second-order equation for that can easily be solved. It has been derived based on the assumption that the system side parameters remain unchanged for three different system conditions and if for any reason the system side parameters vary for the three points, (15) is meaningless and will not have any solutions.
The only condition for (15) to have a real solution is Δ>=0(Δ = b2 - 4ac); therefore the sign of Δ can be used as an index for determination of disturbance side. If Δ is greater than or equal to zero the necessary condition which is unchanged system side parameters, should be correct and we will have one or two solutions. Negative Δ can happen due to the variation of system side parameters, measurement noise, and load switching transients that sometimes exist in power system measurements. And finally

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T After calculating Rs, we can calculate both Xs and Es from (6) and then the feasibility of solutions can be checked by using the following rules:
Rs, Xs and Es should always be positive;
X /R ratio should have feasible values.
Therefore, the proposed three-point algorithm can be used for selecting the data that can be used for the multipoint algorithm. If (15) has solution for every three consecutive points selected from a set of measured data, we can conclude the system side parameters did not have variation for that set of measurement. In this case instead of three points we can use more measurement points for estimation of system impedance parameters which improves the accuracy of the algorithm.

Load Fluctuation Index: The proposed algorithm uses the fluctuations of loads connected to the system to calculate the system parameters. Therefore one of the conditions for the input data of the algorithm is variation of active and reactive power of the load at the substation bus. Since mathematically, variation of one of the variables, P or Q ,would be enough for the equations to be solved, the fluctuations can be defined as the summation of absolute variation of and , as stated in (16) 15 March 2010 13 Presented By: K.

Regd No.:- 0903019 V S S U T THE PROPOSED ALGORITHM FOR THREE-PHASE SYSTEMS:
The power systems are usually designed as three phase systems. Assuming that the system is balanced, the three phase voltages and currents can be transformed to positive, negative and zero sequence voltages and currents. Since the sequences are treated as single phase circuits, the proposed algorithms can be used to calculate the positive, negative, and zero sequence equivalent circuit parameters of the system. The proposed algorithm for three phase systems is explained in the following steps.
Three to five seconds waveforms of three phase voltages and currents of the feeder is captured with 15.36-kHz sampling rate.
Each cycle of the 60-Hz three-phase voltage and current waveforms are transformed to frequency domain using Fourier transformation.
The positive sequence voltages and currents for each cycle of the system frequency are calculated using sequence transformation matrix.
The multipoint algorithm, considering the practical issues, is applied to calculate the positive sequence equivalent circuit parameters of the system.

The following conclusions are drawn.
•) Three to five seconds’ data window with sufficient variations is enough for the estimation of impedance parameters.
•) The 256 sample per cycle rate of data acquisition system is sufficient for data collection process.
•) The algorithm does not depend on the load model and works with natural variations of any kind of loads.
•) Synchronized measurements are not required for calculations, and the method is not sensitive to changes of system frequency and harmonics.
•) The required information can be obtained from the meters that are already installed at the substation buses.
The proposed algorithm has been verified using simulations, experiments and real field tdata. The verification results show that the proposed method can be implemented for online monitoring of power system impedance parameters.
