A Novel Optimistic Location of PMU Using PSO Based Intelligent Flowchart for Power System Observability

Preeti Kabra, D. Sudha Rani

This paper presents the PSO algorithm technique for best location of PMU that makes the power grid completely under observation. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is modern heuristic algorithm for finding optimistic location of PMU. Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) is an advanced apparatus for wide area on line monitoring of grid which measures magnitude along with angle with universal time synchronization. As PMU is an expensive device it is essential to minimize the number of devices with all buses should be under observation. PSO algorithm provides the minimum number of PMU’s for IEEE-14 bus and its location gives better result compared to other optimization algorithms.
