Accurate and timely prediction of power system states is one of the most important challenging tasks in modern power systems. Considering the integration of renewable energy sources, recent deep learning-based models have been well studied and found to have benefits in exploiting spatial-temporal relationships in power system data. However, the complexity of different power system topology structures is not substantially captured since the existing models did not fully consider the graph-based information retrieved from power networks. To resolve the problem, a spatial-temporal attention graph-based network (ST-AGNet), an adaptive power system state prediction approach that utilizes graph-based information data to account various typologies of complex power systems, is proposed. Initially, the power flow model is used for generating historical system state data. With the graph-based topology information, the input dataset with the spatial and temporal features is fed into the proposed network for the training and validating process. Meanwhile, the connectivity of the time-varying graph-based information are accounted in the proposed model. Case studies demonstrate the superiority of the ST-AGNet model over the existing baselines under four different scales of complex systems, which can significantly support dynamic power system analysis and operational tasks.
