Key features:

  • This book consolidates some of the most promising advanced smart grid functionalities and provides a comprehensive set of guidelines for their implementation/evaluation using DIgSILENT Power Factory.

  • It includes specific aspects of modelling, simulation and analysis, for example, wide-area monitoring, visualisation and control, dynamic capability rating, real-time load measurement and management, interfaces and co-simulation for modelling and simulation of hybrid systems. It also presents key advanced features of modelling and automation of calculations using PowerFactory, such as the use of domain-specific (DSL) and DIgSILENT Programming (DPL) languages, and utilises a variety of methodologies including theoretical explanations, practical examples and guidelines.

  • Providing a concise compilation of significant outcomes by experienced users and developers of this program, it is a valuable resource for postgraduate students and engineers working in power-system operation and planning.
