A Robust State Estimation Method Based on Exponential Weight Functions
State estimation of power system is the basis of all the high level application and analysis for dispatch centers. Against the bad convergence of the WLAV (weighted least absolute value)-based state estimation method, a new robust state estimation method based on exponential weight function (E-LAV) is presented in the paper. This method uses an exponential weight function to replace discontinues weight function of WLAV to improve the poor convergence. The results of the sample system of 4-node system and the IEEE 118-node system show that the E-LAV-based state estimation method not only owns the similar convergence as WLS-based method, and also owns a strong robustness. Through modifying the weight matrix of the least squares, the proposed new method has good prospects for application in practical engineering.
