Modeling of communication infrastructure compatible to Nordic 32 power system
Smart Grid integrates communication and computation technologies into power systems. Research on interdisciplinary topics between power system and communication systems requires models for both systems. There are several power system models available representing standard power systems and real power systems. However, lacking of their corresponding communication infrastructure information leads the difficulty of communication system modeling. In this paper, a communication infrastructure model compatible to Nordic 32 power system model has been developed and presented. In this model, Wide Area Monitoring System (WAMS) is incorporated with Supervisor Control and Data Acquisition system. The parameters of this model are based on the data from a Nordic electric power utility. Validation of the model is performed through comparison of results from simulation and a previous empirical data study performed on the same utility network. In additional, this model is simulated by using different Quality of Service (QoS) mechanism. The obtained results show that congestion management mechanisms introduce slight additional delay to the highest priority traffic. But traffics with lower priority can be benefit from congestion management mechanisms. The proposed model can be widely used for other research on Nordic 32 power system.
