Publication# Experimental Validation of a Unified and Linear State Estimation Method for Hybrid AC/DC Microgrids

Abstract

This paper presents the experimental validation of a linear recursive state estimation (SE) process for hybrid AC/DC microgrids proposed in the authors' previous work. The SE uses a unified and linear measurement model that relies on the use of synchronized AC and DC measurements along with the complex modulation index of voltage source converters (VSCs). The validation is performed on the hybrid AC/DC microgrid available at the EPFL. The hybrid network consists of 18 AC nodes, 8 DC nodes and 4 VSCs interfacing the AC and DC parts of the grid at different nodes. The experimental validation of the measurement model is based on the classical noise model verification via the measurement residuals. It is shown that the measurement residuals of the AC system, DC system and VSC model are zero-biased with a standard deviation well below the three-sigma threshold of the expected noise distribution. An estimation of the prediction error covariance is also implemented and analyzed to automatically adopt the accuracy of the SE during dynamic and steady-state conditions. Furthermore, the time latency of each section in the SE process is analysed to validate its applicability in critical real-time applications.

Linear regression

In statistics, linear regression is a linear approach for modelling the relationship between a scalar response and one or more explanatory variables (also known as dependent and independent variables). The case of one explanatory variable is called simple linear regression; for more than one, the process is called multiple linear regression. This term is distinct from multivariate linear regression, where multiple correlated dependent variables are predicted, rather than a single scalar variable.

Standard deviation

In statistics, the standard deviation is a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. A low standard deviation indicates that the values tend to be close to the mean (also called the expected value) of the set, while a high standard deviation indicates that the values are spread out over a wider range. Standard deviation may be abbreviated SD, and is most commonly represented in mathematical texts and equations by the lower case Greek letter σ (sigma), for the population standard deviation, or the Latin letter s, for the sample standard deviation.

Distributed generation

Distributed generation, also distributed energy, on-site generation (OSG), or district/decentralized energy, is electrical generation and storage performed by a variety of small, grid-connected or distribution system-connected devices referred to as distributed energy resources (DER). Conventional power stations, such as coal-fired, gas, and nuclear powered plants, as well as hydroelectric dams and large-scale solar power stations, are centralized and often require electric energy to be transmitted over long distances.
