Monitoring the Health of the System

SYNCHROPHASOR TECHNOLOGY HAS GROWN from a handful of phasor measurement units (PMUs) in the U.S. Pacific Northwest to a continental network of almost 2,000 PMUs in the past decade, which has helped to improve reliability of the North American electric bulk power grid. This progress is due in large part to the research...
