Applications of Synchrophasor Technology
The analysis covers all of the SGIG projects that are deploying phasor measurement units, phasor data concentrators, and associated communications systems, models, and visualization tools to enhance visibility and control within transmission systems and how that might lead to improved electric reliability, efficiency, and operational flexibility.
The key analysis questions concern how and to what extent do synchrophasor technologies improve the operation and reliability of the transmission system? Analysis objectives include:
- Determining the extent to which the transmission system is observed/monitored with synchrophasor technologies.
- Determine how the technologies are changing control room operations, business practices, and procedures.
- Assessing the prospects for these changes to affect grid reliability and security and in what timeframe.
