Synchronized Sampling Uses for Real-Time Monitoring and Control

Project Status: 

The scope of this project was to investigate the potential benefits of integrating information obtained by phasor measurement units (PMU) and other intelligent electronic devices (IED) into the control center real-time monitoring and control solution. 

The project focused on development of new software aimed at automated fault location and visualization. The phases below show the activities for the entire period:

  • The first phase was software preparation, including Java project establishment and generic classes development. This lasted about 2 months;
  • The second phase was the core part, which includes GUI programming, equipment modeling, 2-D and 3-D images creation. This lasted about 7 months;
  • The final phase was software testing and on-site demonstration using field cases. This lasted about 1 month.
