A novel application of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to estimate and track Hydro Generator Dynamic Parameters using online disturbance measurements is presented within this paper. The data for training ANN are obtained through off-line simulation of the generators modelled in a one-machine-infinite-bus environment using the parameters sets that are representative of practical data. The Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm has been adopted and assimilated into the back-propagation learning algorithm for training feed-forward neural networks. The inputs of ANN are organized in coordination with the results obtained from the observability analysis of synchronous generator dynamic parameters in its dynamic behaviour. A collection of 10 ANNs with similar input patterns and different outputs are developed to determine a set of dynamic parameters. The trained ANNs are employed in a real-time operational environment for estimating generator parameters using online measurements acquired during disturbance conditions. The ANNs are employed and tested to identify generator parameters using online measurements obtained during different disturbances. Simulation studies demonstrate the ability of the ANNs to accurately estimate dynamic parameters of hydro-generators. The results also show the impact of test conditions on the accuracy degree of estimation for these parameters. The optimal structure of ANNs is also determined to minimize the error in estimating each dynamic parameter.
