Application of artificial neural network for voltage stability monitoring / Valerian Shem

Shem, Valerian (2003) Application of artificial neural network for voltage stability monitoring / Valerian Shem. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


This project is about monitoring the voltage stability of a system bus. Voltage stability
problem has been one of the major concerns for electric utilities as a result of system
heavy loading and needs to be solved. A 6-system bus is used as input variables, which
consists of real power value (PL) and reactive power (QL). This system analyzes the
concerned variables and shows the stabilized value for load power (L) as the output. To
solve this problem, this simulation implements the Artificial Neural Network approach
using both standard back-propagation technique and hybrid technique (standard backpropagation
and genetic algorithm (GA)). The latter technique requires GA to find the
optimal value for each weight of the neural network. A comparative study is conducted
to measure the performance of the neural network using different types of parameters.
By completing this project, we should be able to have an idea on how to monitor
voltage stability from any system bus and to make machine learns like human does.
