English Abstract

The major objective of this thesis is to develop an Intelligent Alarm Processor (LAP) for processing excessive alarms at the Power Control Center (PCC) especially during a major power disturbance. The received alarms will be analyzed by the LAP and the outcome will be presented to the dispatcher in a shorter, more concise and meaningful manner. The processing of multiple alarms into fewer concise statements is best achieved by applying artificial intelligence techniques into the received alarms. In this thesis, a rule-based Expert System consisting of 61 rules is developed. It utilizes CLIPS as a tool with a forward chaining reasoning. This system emulates an experienced dispatcher at the PCC in analyzing the power system alarms to reach a definite conclusion. The desired conclusion describes what has happened on the network. Such a conclusion is needed to lead to the course of actions required to return the power system to the normal state as soon as possible.
