A Synopsis on Synchrophasor Standards and Guides: Measurements, Data Transfer, Concentration, Testing and Implementation Requirements
(English)Article, review/survey (Refereed) In press
In 2009 the US Department of Energy announced the award of $3.4 Billion under the Smart Grid Investment Grant Program. As a result, many operators in North America were awarded grants to deploy a great number PMUs across their service area, with its related communications and IT infrastructure. Outside North America the deployment of new PMUs and related infrastructure also continues to increase.The availability of this new infrastructure will enable the development and implementation of new applications that utilize time-synchronized dynamic measurements. The recently developed synchrophasor standards PC37.118.1 and PC37.118.2, and guides PC37.242, and PC37.244, are relevant for the development of synchrophasor applications by providing a framework to support interoperability and reliability.This section provides a synopsis of the recently developed standards on synchrophasor measurement requirements and data transfer, as well as guides for requirements on phasor data concentration, and synchronization, calibration, testing, and installation of PMUs.
