Purpose and goal

1.Identify some volunteering Utilities, willing to share data from their network, pertaining to generation and consumption and installed PQ meters. 2.For a long-term PQ profile analysis, it was intended to build adequate technical competence to continue beyond the project tenure for addressing preemptive grid disturbance and resiliency. 3.several guest lectures were delivered to graduate students to capture their interest and working together with the faculty at LNU for cross-discipline CPS themed research.

Expected results and effects

1.A statistical analysis was made from the compilation of this information to extrapolate the future scenario and inspire the non-participating utilities to reflect on their grid performance from the presented results. 2.Different PQ events were categorized with knowledge of whether they are source (generation) or load driven. 3.Future research to support the PQ problems in the context of a CPS system will be explored beyond the completion of the project through research proposals to third parties.

Planned approach and implementation

1.Various workshops were held together with utilities to streamline the process for data collection and preprocessing, communication protocol identification. 2.Different departments within the utility operations were involved for discussing the network topology, installed PQ meters and the source and load combinations in the network. 3.Three party discussions were carried out together with cross-discipline staff from LNU and utilities for collaborating on the architectural development of a PQ monitoring system.
