A new platform for validating real-time, large-scale WAMPAC systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A platform for emulating 64 Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), with data from a real-time simulation, has been developed. An RTDS simulator has been used to provide IEC 61850-9-2 Sampled Value data, representing three-phase voltage and current measurements from up to 64 power system locations, and the platform efficiently processes the data using cost-effective ARM-based devices, which output synchrophasor data according to the IEEE C37.118.2 protocol. The platform provides flexibility to configure the PMU class and reporting rate at run-time. The paper analyses the measured report latency of the PMUs under a variety of configurations. This development provides a cost-effective system for demonstrating wide-area visualisation, control, and protection schemes.
