The Synchrophasor Data Conditioning and Validation Project sponsored by the US department of Energy Consortium for Electric Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS) program was started in December 2012. The project objectives are to develop, prototype, and test various methods for conditioning and validating real-time synchrophasor data.

This report covers Phase 2, Prototype Demonstration. Phase 2 consisted of four tasks:

Task 1: Develop Error Simulation Utility
Task 2: Data Validation Prototype Demonstration
Task 3: Summary Report
Task 4: Review Meeting with Project Participants.

In Phase 2 Task 1, EPG created an error simulation utility. The utility allows a user to generate various communication and measurement errors in a saved data stream to be able to observe that they are detected and alarmed. This greatly simplifies testing of the prototype. This was completed in May and used to test the PDVC prototype. It has also been used to demonstrate the prototype to users. This report covers the performance of the PDVC prototype and presents the test results. It also describes the prototype demonstration, summarizes results, and describes meetings with project participants.
