Cyber-Physical Power System Testing Platform for Topology Identification in Power Distribution Grids

Challenge and objective

  • To validate and develop topology identification algorithm for MV and LV system of the distribution network.

Work performed

  • Validation of a TI method that can be used in DSO's control centre

Significant results

  • In this paper, the algorithm has been challenged by integrating the TI algorithm with a CPPS where the current measurements interact within a communications layer.​ ​
  • TI accuracy and robustness against error in the sensor and pseudo-measurements are tested in the CPPS platform.​ ​
  • Powertech 2023 conference paper presented.

Impact for distribution system innovation

  • The TI algorithm seems to be a practical for possible integrated in the DSO control centre to operate with existent energy measurements from smart meters.
