State estimation plays an important role in real time security monitoring and control of power systems. With increasing implementation of PMUs across the electric power grids and the ability of the Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) to directly measure the system state, the use of these measurements to improve the precision of state estimator becomes imperative. In this paper, a new state estimator including voltage and current phasors and traditional measurements is proposed. The methodology is validated by simulation results on the 14 and 30 IEEE bus test systems. Several comparisons between the use of SCADA measurements and PMU measurements are exposed. Discussion concerning statistical robustness of the implemented state estimators is presented.
