Wide Area Monitoring. Enabling synchrophasor based wide area monitoring applications and dynamic disturbance analysis.

Advanced Synchrophasor Technology
Monitoring of electrical grid infrastructure is a critical task carried out continuously by system operators to guarantee safe and reliable operations. Traditional SCADA systems give operators a view of the system's operating conditions with a typical latency in the range of seconds and minutes. The relative low measurement frequency and low speed communications combined with the time required to execute analysis programs have not allowed traditional SCADA systems to handle system emergency operations in real time. The faster and higher resolution measurements introduced with synchrophasor technologies, also known as dynamic monitoring capabilities, enable wide area monitoring at the system level based on accurate and precise data at high-speed data rates with extremely low latency, less than 200ms. When applied to wide area applications, synchrophasors enable operators to optimize system availability, reliability and stability analysis and operations. Phasor Data Concentrators (PDCs) and the Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), that supply control centers with phasor data, are key components of synchrophasor based wide area monitoring systems.

    EnerVista Synchrophasor Viewer Software

    EnerVista Synchrophasor Viewer is a powerful yet simple to use synchrophasor data management and visualization tool. EnerVista Synchrophasor Viewer can be customized to provide different views of the power system in a time aligned, live view or time aligned replay of historical events over user defined time span.

    The visualization interface is based on an easy to use "worksheet" work environment. Users can create multiple worksheets on which multiple user configurable objects such as Phasor Displays, Trend Charts, Historian Statistics and PMU Status tables are displayed.

    EnerVista Synchrophasor Viewer supports up to 16 Multilin P30 historians simultaneously. Each historian can be accessed by up to seven concurrent users.
