These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Fast and accurate dynamic synchrophasor estimator for protection applications   Order a copy of this article
    by Billal Khettaoui, Mohamed Boudour 
    Abstract: This paper proposes a new synchrophasor estimation algorithm capable of speeding up the rate of measurements. It reduces the computational complexity and meets the accuracy requirements of the P-class PMU (Phasor Measurement Unit) defined by the IEEE Std C37.118.1-2011 and its amendment IEEE Std C37.118.1a-2014. The proposed estimator is constructed by inserting the second order Taylor polynomial of signal model in the Modulated Sliding Discrete Fourier Transform (MSDFT) expression, taking advantage of the dynamic model of the Taylor series expansion and the low computational complexity of the MSDFT. The proposed technique is found to be as accurate as the traditional one (based on joint application of Taylors second order polynomial and the DFT) with higher reporting rates and it satisfies all the tests listed by the standard as well as the influence of wideband noise and decaying DC component.
