Power Quality Monitors (PQM) are required to be installed at many buses in a power network in order to assess disturbances such as voltage sags. However, installation of PQMs at all buses considered in the system is uneconomical. This paper presents an improved algorithm to PQM placement using the Multivariable Regression (MVR) model and the Cpand Rp statistics. The IEEE 30 bus test system is used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed MVR method and compared with the covering and packing, and the monitor reach area based methods.
