Wide Area Measurements for Power System Smart Monitoring and Control

Dr. Masayuki Watanabe
Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan


WAMS (Wide Area Measurement System) with PMUs (Phasor Measurement Units) is the key technology for monitoring, state estimation, system protections and control of widely spread power systems. A direct, more precise and accurate monitoring can be achieved by the technique of phasor measurements of the voltage phasors synchronized by time information of GPS (Global Positioning System). Proper grasp of the present state with flexible wide area control and smart operation should become key issues to keep the power system stability in the complicated grid with the growing penetration of distributed generation and renewable energy. The scope of the session is in the application of WAMS for monitoring, protection, and control of power systems.
