CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method of assessing from a location (8) the operation of a first device (12A, 12B, 12C, 12D) from among a number of first devices that are electrically connected with an electrical feeder (4) and that are operable to control the voltage on the electrical feeder, the electrical feeder additional having a number of second devices (16A, 16B, 16C, 16D) electrically connected therewith which generate varying amounts of electrical power that is contributed at least in part to the electrical feeder, the method comprising:

detecting (118) at a first time a number of properties of the electrical power at a number of locations on the electrical feeder, the number of properties comprising at least one of a voltage magnitude, a voltage phase angle, a current magnitude, and a current phase angle;

issuing (122) from the location at a second time subsequent to the first time an instruction to make a change in an operational parameter of the first device;

detecting (126) at a third time subsequent to the second time another number of properties of the electrical power at a number of locations on the electrical feeder, the another number of properties comprising at least one of a voltage magnitude, a voltage phase angle, a current magnitude, and a current phase angle;

employing at least a portion of the number of properties and at least a portion of the another number of properties to determine (130) a resultant effect on the electrical feeder between the first and third times;

determining (134) an expected effect upon the electrical feeder by at least one second device at the third time based at least in part upon a data set that is in existence prior to the third time;

filtering (138) the expected effect from the resultant effect and determining, based at least in part thereon, a net effect on the electrical feeder of the change in the operational parameter the first device; and

determining, based at least in part upon a comparison (142) between the net effect and a baseline effect for the first device, whether at the third time the first device is functioning properly.

2. The method of Claim 1 wherein the data set comprises a historic data set (60) that includes a historic electrical power generation value for the at least one second device, and further comprising employing the historic data set in the determining of the expected effect.

3. The method of Claim 2 wherein the historic electrical power generation value includes a temporal value that corresponds with the third time, and further comprising employing the temporal value in the determining of the expected effect.

4. The method of Claim 2 wherein the historic electrical power generation value corresponds with a weather condition, and further comprising detecting the existence of the weather condition in the vicinity of the at least one second device at the third time.

5. The method of Claim 4 wherein the data set further comprises a number of correlation values that correspond with the weather condition, and further comprising determining the expected effect based at least in part upon an application of the number of correlation values to a nominal output value of the at least one second device.

6. The method of Claim 1 wherein the data set comprises a forecast data set (56) that includes a value of at least a first weather parameter that is forecast to occur in the vicinity of the at least one second device at the third time, and wherein the data set further comprises a number of correlation values that correspond with the value of at least a first weather parameter, and further comprising determining the expected effect based at least in part upon an application of the number of correlation values to a nominal output value of the at least one second device, and further comprising determining the expected effect based at least in part upon an application of the number of correlation values to a nominal output value of the at least one second device.

7. The method of Claim 1 wherein the data set comprises at least one of a historic data set (60) that includes a historic electrical power generation value for the at least one second device and a forecast data set (56) that includes a value of at least a first weather parameter that is forecast to occur in the vicinity of the at least one second device at the third time, and further comprising employing the at least one of the historic data set and the forecast data in the determining of the expected effect.

8. The method of Claim 1 wherein the data set comprises a historic data set (60) that includes a historic electrical power generation value for the at least one second device and a forecast data set (56) that includes a value of at least a first weather parameter that is forecast to occur in the vicinity of the at least one second device at the third time, and further comprising employing at least one of the historic data set and the forecast data in the determining of the expected effect.
