Data-driven analysis of dynamic performance has attracted a lot of interest in the modern power grid with highly accurate measurement technologies such as Synchrophasor. In this chapter, we report the research effort to do this for voltage dynamics in a rudimentary model of power grids. We use the combination of the so-called delay embedding with the extended dynamic mode decomposition, which is a technique for approximating the Koopman operator directly from time-series data. This combination enables us to approximate the spectral properties of the Koopman operator through voltage–amplitude measurement of a single bus. The spectral properties clarify not only the local information on the voltage dynamics such as frequency/damping in transient responses but also global one such as the flow structure of the underlying mathematical model.
