Dynamic Estimation and Control of Power Systems uniquely addresses the dynamic estimation driven control techniques for power systems. As a thorough source of information for engineers and researchers working in the field, this book offers foundational and technological developments for dynamically controlling the system, making it a valuable resource for those familiar with conventional power system technology. It is the first single source on dynamic estimation of power networks that presents detailed case-studies (including MATLAB codes) that demonstrate the concepts presented in the development and application of dynamic estimation based control technique.

Key Features

  • Offers the first concise, single resource on dynamic estimation and control of power systems

About the Author

Abhinav Singh

Dr. Abhinav K. Singh received B.Tech. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India, and the Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London (ICL), U.K., in Aug. 2010 and Jan. 2015, respectively, all in electrical engineering. Currently, he is working as a Research Associate at ICL and research active in electric power generation and transmission. Dr. Singh specializes in estimation and control of small signal oscillatory dynamics in power systems. His other research interests include application of signal processing and communication networks in power systems. His research has produced six papers in IEEE Transactions (the topmost journals of power and control). His PhD research on ‘Decentralized Estimation and Control for Power Systems’ won the EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship in January 2015. He has also received IEEE PES Working Group Recognition Award for Benchmark Systems for Stability Controls Task Force for the development and validation of a 68-bus power system model. This model now forms a part of IEEE Benchmark Systems and serves as a standard for researchers to validate their innovations in stability analysis and control design. Dr. Singh is also actively collaborating with industrial partners like National Grid UK, ESB Ireland, ABB Switzerland and SecuControl Germany for industrial translation and adoption of his research.
