Abstract [en]

Synchrophasor technology is relatively new to many utility companies as they plan for its introduction as part of their smart grid infrastructure investment. A first question that arises in planning for synchrophasor technology use is where should we place the phasor measurement units (PMUs)? Because synchrophasor data can be used in a variety of applications, the placement of PMUs should be driven by the intended applications, which may have varying data needs and differing PMU siting considerations. This white paper intends to provide information on and be a resource for such PMU placement issues, using recently developed PMU placement documents from various power grid operators and from applications described in technical papers.

This white paper offers some guidelines for designers and users of the synchrophasor systems to decide where to place new PMUs. The paper addresses the information requirements of power system applications under all conditions (normal, alert, emergency, restorative) and across all time horizons (monitoring, protection, control, operation, planning).

As many PMU placement documents are already available, the main sections of this document will be quite brief. Some expanded details on the guidelines can be found in the appendices.
