This paper presents a novel coordinated algorithm, Fast Distributed State Estimation with Linear Coordination (FDSELC), considering Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) measurements at both subsystem and coordination levels. At the subsystem level, the estimators apply augmented Fast Decoupled State Estimation algorithm to reduce the computational time at the first step. At the coordination level, linear estimators based on PMUs measurements are able to coordinate the voltage states of boundary buses, which lead to the further improvement of computational performance. Tests on the IEEE 118-bus system demonstrate the performance of the novel FDSELC algorithms. The results are compared with centralized and other distributed state estimation algorithms in terms of both the estimation quality and computational cost. In addition, the proposed FDSELC algorithm with the distributed control architecture is suitable for future smart grids. In this situation, a large power grid can be decomposed into subsystems, and those subsystems can be estimated, monitored and controlled separately.
