Building a Frequency Monitoring Network to Study Dynamics of Small-Scale Power Systems

Frequency is one of the most important measures of the status of a power system, especially for weak and smallscale po systems. Therefore, frequency monitoring is a desirable practice to ensure reliability and provide data for analysis. This paper reports the joint work between Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) to study frequency dynamics of small power systems. We describe the Frequency Disturbance Recorder (FDR) implementation experience at ATBU, Bauchi, Nigeria, and present analysis on the digital recordings provided by the FDR installed at this location. A proposal for a university-based FNET for Nigeria’s power system is also presented. Such monitoring system will allow further investigations on the Nigerian system dynamics and will enhance the understanding of dynamics and control of weak small-scale power systems.
