For many decades, state estimation has been a critical technology in the energy management systems utilized by transmission system operators. Over time, it has become a mature technology that provides an accurate representation of system state under fairly stable and well understood system operation. The integration of variable energy resources such as wind and solar generation, however, introduce new dynamics and uncertainties into the system. Along with increase in variability which needs

Conventional solutions to this problem result in large problem sets being solved at a faster rate thereby becoming computationally intensive. This work builds upon the recent contribution of event-triggering where the state estimator is only called in the case of considerable "novelty" in the evolution of the system state. Specifically, the concept of tracking saves significant computational effort at minimal expense of error by allowing for the update of system state between two consecutive triggered instances. The new eventtriggered tracking state estimator (ETTSE) is demonstrated on the standard IEEE 14-bus system, and the results are observed for a specific bus.
