Abstract

This article deals with the synchronized measurement technology that has the potential of becoming the backbone for real-time monitoring system. The secure and reliable operation of modern power systems is an increasingly challenging task due to the ever-increasing demand for electricity, the growing number of interconnections, penetration of variable renewable energy sources, and deregulated energy market conditions. Power companies in different parts of the world are therefore feeling the need for a real-time wide area monitoring, protection, and control (WAMPAC) system. Synchronized measurement technology (SMT) has the potential of becoming the backbone of this system. The major advantages of using SMT are that 1) the measurements from widely dispersed locations can be synchronized with respect to a Global Positioning System (GPS) clock, 2) voltage phase angles can be measured directly, which was so far technically infeasible, and 3) the accuracy and speed of energy management system (EMS) applications increases manifold.
