[1] Wide-Area Situational Awareness Using Data Analytic for Smart-grids Under Cyber and Physical Stresses.

Goal: Wide-area situational awareness (WASA) comprises automatic prevention, perception, and restorative actions of any kind of anomalies directed towards a smart grid. Thus, to ensure proper WASA it is customary to make available the status information of the grid to control center, such that detected anomalies immediately addressed. Since the smart-grid relies on deep integrated of cyber components which provide invaluable opportunities for a more secure and reliable operation of the smart grid. But also, the critical interdependency of power grids on the cyber components, modern power grids exhibit new vulnerabilities to cyber and physical attacks. For instance, the immense volume of energy data collected by various sensors, such as Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), provide new opportunities for detecting, estimating and predicting various events in the system using data analytics techniques and machine learning. Understanding the nature of attacks and exploiting the vulnerabilities towards it is very important to design proper defense against ever-increasing cyber and physical stresses on the smart grid. The paper presented in this report intended to utilize this immense volume of PMU measurement data and processing and quizzing out potential information using various advanced data analytics techniques to design an efficient defense mechanism against cyber and physical stresses. Thus ensuring sufficient situational awareness for the smart grid.

[2] Overview of US Solar Energy Prospective and Challenges in Grid Integration

A sustainable energy future can be realized also preserving the environmental balance by generating electricity through renewable energy technologies. To meet the world's energy demand, renewable sources can be the fuel of choice because of the affordability, availability, and prevalent nature. Sustainable energy technologies have come a long way and ongoing research efforts to find new ways to make energy harvesting even more efficient and cost-effective. Among the various types of renewable energy sources, solar energy is one of the most viable sustainable sources. In this paper, the concentration is limited to solar energy resources, a summary of solar energy prospects in the US, and also the key challenges to integrate harvesting technologies to the grid along with potential solutions.

[3] State estimation in Cyber-physical Smart Grids Using Graph Convolution Network

Smart grids as dynamic cyber-physical systems need active monitoring and control for seamless operations. Wide area situational awareness in smart grids can enable protection, prevention, and restorative capabilities against unusual situations. Artificial intelligence with the blessing of big data analytics has the potential to make smart grids situation-aware. Graph neural networks are such an artificial intelligence technique that can handle complex network data better than traditional neural networks. The goal of this works is to evaluate the potential of such techniques addressing critical challenges such as state estimation. This work evaluates the potential of graph convolution-LSTM network addressing the centralized state estimation over IEEE 118 test case system.

[4] Robust Adaptive Filters applied to distorted power system signals for frequency estimation

In general, abnormal data obtained from measurements may cause noises and disturbances of power systems as well as affect the accuracy of frequency estimation. This kind of disturbance may lead to power system instability and blackouts. This is still an active area of research and many researchers have proposed several techniques to address this issue. The goal of this project is to explore those methods. Also to design an adaptive filter (e.x. Extended Kalman Filter) to estimate the frequency from the distorted power system signals. Synthetically generated PMU measurements of phase voltage and phase angle signal will be used for computer simulation.

[5] Stochastic Modeling of Cascading Failure Dynamics with Branching Process in Bulk Power Grids

Cascading failures in interdependent systems like smart-grid is a sequence of dependent failures of individual components that successively weakens the system and eventually causes wide spread blackouts or system failure. This interdependent failure of components is stochastic in nature and might well be explained mathematically using stochastic process models such as Branching Process. The goal of this project is to analyze simulated cascading failure data generated from random transmission line failure in IEEE 118 bus test case system and quantify the failure propagation of transmission lines in a cascade using Galton-Watson branching process. And eventually, predict the expected cascade size distribution from the branching process model.
