Evaluating Synthetic Smart Meter Locations For Communication System Modeling
AbstractAn important part of good communication models for smart grid applications, particularly when wireless protocols are used, is the location information of the nodes. We’ve developed metrics to assist in evaluating whether a given model with such information is representative of feeders found in the world. These metrics are applied to a set of feeder models with known good location information for the smart meter locations and compared to a set of feeder models with similar location information that is not expected to be representative of real-world feeders. The comparison reveals that the suspect models do not pass statistical tests utilizing the developed metrics, providing initial validation of the analysis technique.
