the purpose of security assessment is to verify the security of the current state of the system and find the secure regions within which the system can operate. In operations, a secure system involves respecting all operating criteria at pre and post- contingency conditions. Operating limits include thermal, voltage and angle limits as well as all forms of stability. This paper presents a computationally efficient and extremely fast method of computing real-time thermal security operating limits SOLs) for any line imposed by reliability criteria for NERC’s class B (i.e., N-1) contingencies. The method makes use of linear sensitivity factors and is programmed in VC++ and integrated with a dispatcher training simulator (DTS).
