No. of Pages : 81

Synchrophasors use phasor measurement units (PMUs) as monitoring devices that measure current, instantaneous voltage, and frequency at specific locations on an electric grid. This provides the operators with a real-time picture of the grid system helping them to make decisions to prevent power outage. The measurements obtained by the synchrophasors are used to improve grid visualization, operational monitoring, power system control, stability monitoring, state estimation, and fault analysis. Each measurement taken by a synchrophasor is time-stamped according to a common time reference. This helps synchrophasors from different utilities to be combined and synchronized, which presents a comprehensive view of a regional interconnection. The data collected by synchrophasors thus determine the grid stress and help take decisions to maintain reliability of the grid.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Synchrophasors market in the US will grow at a CAGR of 30.1 percent over the period 2014-2018.
