Robust Event Classification Using Imperfect Real-world PMU Data

no code implementations19 Oct 2021 Yunchuan Liu, Lei Yang, Amir Ghasemkhani, Hanif Livani, Virgilio A. Centeno, Pin-Yu Chen, Junshan Zhang

Specifically, the data preprocessing step addresses the data quality issues of PMU measurements (e. g., bad data and missing data); in the fine-grained event data extraction step, a model-free event detection method is developed to accurately localize the events from the inaccurate event timestamps in the event logs; and the feature engineering step constructs the event features based on the patterns of different event types, in order to improve the performance and the interpretability of the event classifiers.
