Screening procedure to identify power system events of the Texas Synchrophasor Network
This work presents a method for screening synchrophasor data to search for power system events of interest. The method employs prony algorithm to perform modal analysis and estimate mode amplitude, frequency, and damping ratio on the data obtained from the Texas Synchrophasor Network. The procedure uses seven different Linear Prediction Model (LPM) orders, plus a 10 second window width that slides in steps of 1 second, to minimize the possibility of overlooking events of interest. Further, the algorithm is extended to include user defined modal characteristics thresholds, window length and step size to capture specific power system events.
