Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator

Midwest ISO Synchrophasor Deployment Project


For this project, the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator(Midwest ISO) deployed synchrophasor technology throughout its service footprint. The project deployed phasor measurement units (PMUs), phasor data concentrators, and advanced transmission software applications. This technology has increased grid operators visibility into bulk power system conditions in nearÔÇÉreal time, enabled earlier detection of conditions that could result in grid instability or outages, and facilitated information sharing with neighboring regional control areas.
