Topic: Evolution of PMUs and WAMS
Abstract: The talk will explain the history of Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) development from 1970s to date. The work on computer relaying was the starting point. The reason for the invention of Symmetrical Component Distance Relay will be explained. The jump from a relay to PMU was a perfect transition, and has led to much of the current research on PMUs, Wide Area Measurement Systems (WAMS), and their applications in monitoring, control and protection of power systems. A brief summary of current IEEE standards and testing of PMUs will be presented. The talk will conclude with some thoughts on where this technology is heading.
Cost: Lunch is FREE! Attendees will have to cover the cost of parking at ASU (see attached parking map).
