Speech title:Power System Restoration:Recent research progress


Cyber attacks against actual power systems have become more and more frequent in the last few years, and impose new challenges for developing restoration strategies after cyber-physical coupling failures. To coordinate restoration activities between physical and cyber systems, it is of necessity to investigate collaborative cyber-physical restoration strategies. First, a restoration model of the physical system is established based on the restoration characteristics of generators, power lines, and loads with system security constraints including bus voltage, system frequency, and transmission capacity well respected. Next, according to the network topology of the cyber system in the power system, a top-down cyber restoration strategy is proposed to ensure bidirectional communication between the power dispatch and control center and cyber buses. Then, the interactions between physical and cyber systems are modeled by utilizing operation time delays of adjusting power outputs of generators, power line restoration, and load pickup due to communication failures. The proposed models can be integrated into a mixed-integer second order cone programming (MISOCP) problem by applying linearized power flow equation set. Finally, the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method are demonstrated by a sample cyber-physical power system attained by modifying the IEEE 30-bus power system. Numerical results indicate that the proposed collaborative restoration strategy manifests superiority in avoiding additional outages and reducing outage losses.
