Designing,monitoring and controlling such systems is becoming increasingly more challenging as a consequence of the steady growth of their size, complexity, level of uncertainty, unpredictable behavior, and interactions. These critical infrastructures are susceptible to natural disasters, frequent failures,and malicious attacks. At the epicenter of the well-being and prosperity of society lie the electric power systems. The secure and reliable operation of modern power systems is an increasingly challenging task due to the ever-increasing demand for electricity, the growing number of interconnections, penetration of variable renewable energy sources, and deregulated energy market conditions. Power companies in different parts of the world are therefore feeling the need for a real-time wide area monitoring, protection, and control (WAMPAC) system. Synchronized measurement technology (SMT) has the potential of becoming the backbone of this system.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
