Power system load modelling in a smart grid environment


Power system load modelling remains a challenging area yet to be fully understood.  Measurement based load modelling is widely used by industry to develop load models at high voltage level for system operations and planning purposes.  With smart grid technologies, there are increasing measurement data available from the low voltage end use customer side.  This measurement data enables better understanding of the load composition and therefore provides great potentials for more reliable, accurate load models to be developed.

Research location

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Program type



Research students under this project will develop power system load modelling methods; build up their experience of using industrial packages such as DIgSILENT, PSS_E, PSS_SINCAL, and ASPEN for comprehensive power system steady state and dynamic simulations with different load models for various power system studies.
