PMUs and PDCs requirements

Dec 7, 2010 at 5:17 PM

Hi, guys!

I'm working on a smart grid project and I need to know some information about the requiremets (e.g. necessity of TCP and/or UDP connections, report rate, frequency accuracy, protocols supported, protocols convertion, maximum number of PMUs, etc.) of PMUs and PDCs when using openPDC. Could you help me? Thanks a lot!!

The following excellent document, posted by NASPI after Nov 9, 2010, addresses most of your general PMU and PDC questions:

Real-Time Application of Synchrophasors for Improving ... [Oct 17, 2010]

For PMU accuracy specifications, the IEEE C37.118-2005 specification provides some of this detail.  This specification also includes a specification for one of the protocols supported by openPDC.  I think we can look forward to significant updates to the specifications for PMU accuracy, precision, and reliability; as well as additional protocol requirements are going to be available from IEEE and IEC in 2011.
