The world-wide application of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) brings great benefit to power system state estimation. The synchronised measurements from PMUs can increase estimation accuracy, synchronise states among different systems, and provide greater applicability of state estimation in the transient condition. However, the integration of synchronised measurements with state estimation can introduce efficiency problems due to the substantial burden of data. The research is divided into two parts: finding a solution to cope with the computational efficiency problem and developing a transient state estimation algorithm based on synchronised measurements from PMUs. The computational efficiency problems constitute important considerations in the operation of state estimation. To improve the low computational efficiency, two distributed algorithms are proposed in Chapters 4 and 5. In these two algorithms, the modelling, structure, and solution are described, and the corresponding procedures of bad data processing are presented. Numerical results on the IEEE 30-bus, 118-bus and 300-bus systems can verify the effectiveness of the two proposed algorithms. A novel transient state estimation algorithm based on synchronised measurements is proposed in Chapter 6. Considering the scanning cycle and sampling rate of PMU measurements, the proposed algorithm can estimate transient states in a practical way. The performance of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated in a transient simulation on the IEEE 14-bus system.
