Performance and Fiscal Analysis of Distributed Sensor Networks in a Power Plant. M. Colby and K. Tumer. In AAMAS-2012 Workshop on Agent Technologies for Energy Systems, Valencia, Spain, June 2012.

Abstract

As power plants become more complex and system models become difficult or impossible to generate, the plants must be split into subsystems to be controlled independently. Distributed sensor networks show promise for this application, because they are inherently modular and have the ability to preprocess data to help with the control process. We investigate how effectively a distributed sensor network could be implemented in a model power plant, showing that system parameters may be accurately measured and tracked more effectively than traditional power plant sensors. In addition, a distributed sensor network is also shown to be capable of detecting system changes that are undetectable by standard sets of sensors. Finally, a cost analysis is performed to show when a distributed sensor network is a financially viable alternative to a standard set of sensors.
