    Abstract

    Distribution system operators (DSOs) require accurate knowledge of the status of the network in order to ensure the continuity and quality of power supply. In this context, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the Power Network Demonstrations Centre (PNDC) have been working together in the development and validation of optimal sensor placement and network topology estimation algorithms. This paper presents the description of two of these algorithms as well as the topology configuration of the PNDC distribution network considered to gather measurements for the validation of the algorithms. A Power-Hardware-in-the-Loop (P-HiL) configuration has been used as the testbed, where a number of physical measurement devices are installed in the physical network and an extended number of devices are virtually installed in the simulate network. The applications of the proposed algorithms to the measurements along with results from the P-HiL tests are presented in the paper.
