Generation dispatch method based on maximum entropy principle for power systems with high penetration of wind power

This paper proposes a generation dispatch model based on the maximum entropy principle. The objective is to find an optimal generation dispatch strategy that minimizes the generation cost and satisfies the security constraints of power systems, while taking into account the uncertainty of wind power.

Detection of false data injection attacks using unscented Kalman filter

It has recently been shown that state estimation (SE), which is the most important real-time function in modern energy management systems (EMSs), is vulnerable to false data injection attacks, due to the undetectability of those attacks using standard bad data detection techniques, which are typically based on normalized measurement residuals. Therefore, it is of the utmost...

Evolving coal-fired power plant carbon dioxide emission rate intensities on U.S. electricity operating systems

For many years, coal-fired power plant generation comprised the largest share of electricity in the U.S. power sector. While natural gas plants now constitute a greater portion of the total, coal is projected to remain a shrinking but significant component of U.S. electricity production. Natural gas-fired technologies are dispatchable and versatile generation sources, but the...
