Using of Clustering Techniques in Optimal Placement of Phasor Measurements Units
1. Introduction The paper proposes an algorithm based on the clustering techniques for solving optimal measurement placement in power system state estimation. The phasor measurement unit (PMU) is considered to be one of the most important measuring devices in the future of power systems. The distinction comes from its unique ability to provide synchronized phasor measurements of voltages and currents from widely dispersed locations in an electric power grid.

Using of Clustering Techniques in Optimal Placement of Phasor Measurements Units
1. Introduction There are two important methods for optimal placement of PMUs: topology based methods and numerical methods. Topology methods use the decoupled measurement model and graph theory. In these methods decision is based on logical operations. Numerical methods use either fully coupled or decoupled measurement models. These methods are based on numerical factorization of the measurement Jacobian or measurement information gain matrix.

2. Power System State Estimation State estimator provides the optimal estimate of the system state based on the received measurements and the knowledge of the network model. The finding of the best locations for PMUs, in order of state estimation, can be formulated as an optimization problem and solved using an appropriate numerical method. For the objective function can be used the weighted sum of the measurement residual squares, which leads to the well known Weighted Least Squares (WLS) state estimation solution.

2. Power System State Estimation The WLS state estimator equations are: (1) where: z - the measurement vector, dimension m; h - the non-linear function vector, dimension m; x - the system state vector, dimension 2N; w – the measurement error vector, dimension m; m - the number of measurements; N - the number of buses. The WLS state estimation problem is solved as an iterative calculus: (2) (3)

4. Optimal PMU Placement Method with Clustering Techniques The task of area identify of PMUs is formulated as a problem of nodes connectivity identification from analysis power system. A hierarchical clustering method is used, which well overcomes problems concerning formation of coherent and representative groups (named below zones). Step 1. Units (that represent the links of every node with other) from binary connectivity matrix A compare, and to gather them progressively in coherent groups (zones) in a way that the nodes in the same group to belong same zone. The elements of the binary connectivity matrix A as defined below:

4. Optimal PMU Placement Method with Clustering Techniques After that, they are linked together in to the new group (zone) Z. The newly formed zones are grouped into larger zones until a hierarchical tree is formed. The process is repeated until there is only one zone if all nodes meet the required criterion. Step 2. The hierarchical tree is divided into coherent zones by cutting off the hierarchical tree at an arbitrary point, α. The threshold of inconsistency coefficient strongly influences the final number of zones. Thus, it is defined so that every zone to contain a nodes number smaller than maximum links number of a node from system. Step 3. The PMUs placement in nodes of system. The PMUs number which can be installed in system is equal with number of obtained zones. These PMUs will be installed in node that have the more links with other nodes from respective zone. If the links number among nodes is equal, then the PMU is placement in the first node that it belong zone from dendogram of clustering process.

6. Conclusions In this paper a new approach, based on the clustering techniques, is proposed for determination of the minimum number of PMUs in order to make the system fully observable The results obtained using different systems demonstrate that the methodology can be used with the success in solving optimal measurement placement in power system state estimation.
