Abstract

This paper discusses model-based reasoning applied to power network protection system performance analysis. Appropriate modelling and reasoning methodologies are indicated, and their advantages considered. The necessity of incorporating protection system performance analysis within a decision support system (DSS), designed for electric utility protection engineers, is presented. Alarm processing and fault diagnosis are demonstrated as further requirements of the DSS for protection engineers, within which knowledge-based reasoning and model-based reasoning are combined to provide the overall functionality required.
