English Abstract

The high accuracy synchronized measurements gathered from phasor measurement units (PMUs) has improved the operation and control philosophy in an electrical power system.

Therefore, PMUs are becoming an important component of modern power grid.

A various applications of wide area measurements system (WAMS) are improved using PMU instead of traditional measurements.

Due to the high cost of PMUs and its installation cost, it is often difficult to install PMU at each bus in the system.

Additionally, the determination process of the required number PMUs and the most appropriate placement of these units need extended deeply study.

From this point, many researchers have tackled the question of optimal PMUs placement (OPP) with different approaches.

WAMS applications are very sensitive applications as it interferes with control and protection system, this requires reliable and accurate measurements.

Therefore, system fault tolerance must be studied in any WAMS design.

Fault-tolerance is the ability of a system or component to continue normal operation despite the presence of hardware or software faults.

In this work the concept of fault tolerance has been incorporated in OPP calculations.

In PMU installation process the fault tolerance of the system can be improved by increase the reliability of the critical component of the system.

The work in this thesis proposes an OPP model with considered several aspects to improve the system fault tolerance of the system.

The proposed model ensures maximum measurement reliability for critical components in the power system using bi-level optimization.

Additionally, a comprehensive cost model for WAMS implementation including PMU and other additional costs is proposed.

In this thesis, an artificial electric filed algorithm (AEFA) has been used to solve the proposed cost model.

the proposed models have been applied on small and large IEEE test systems using MATLAB programing environment.
