AbstractMidwest Energy, Inc. (Midwest) deployed new communications equipment and smart relays at its Knoll substation. These relays included synchrophasor measurement technologies that increase grid operators’ visibility of bulk power system conditions in near-real time, enable earlier detection of problems that threaten grid stability or cause outages, and facilitate sharing of information with neighboring control areas.
