This 3-hour course reviews the many ways that synchrophasor technology can be used to support real time and off-line activities to enhance the reliable operations of the bulk power system. It can help deliver better real-time tools that enhance system operators’ situational awareness.

A synchrophasor system -- with wide deployment of phasor measurement units and dedicated high-speed communications to collect and deliver synchronized high-speed grid condition data, along with analytics and other advanced on-line dynamic security assessment and control applications -- will improve real-time situational awareness and decision support tools to enhance system reliability.

Synchrophasor measurements can also be used to improve component and system models for both on-line and off-line network analysis to assess system security and adequacy to withstand expected contingencies.
