The present invention discloses a system protection scheme comprising of at least two system protection terminals (18), introduced at suitable locations in an electric power system (1). The system protection terminals (18) are interconnected by a communication system (22), preferably using a substantially dedicated communication resource. At least-two of the system protection terminals (18) are equipped to collect measurement signals (72) associated with time stamped voltage or current values of the power system at that particular location or quantities derivable therefrom. The measurements are evaluated and related data is spread to other system protection terminals (18). At least one of the system protection terminals (18) is equipped to evaluate the existence of poorly damped power oscillations in the power network and if necessary provide control signals (74) to power system actuating units. The evaluation is preferably based on changes in the node angle differences between the measurement locations.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
