Phasor Monitoring Units (PMUs) are being more widely installed across the UK electricity network; as protection and control technology develops. The PMUs can detail the shape of the AC electrical wave at the monitoring point; which can be used to provide several key electrical system parameters and significantly aids knowledge of how the network operates under both normal and abnormal conditions.
There are two key objects with this project;

·       Explore if electrical system phasor measurements can be used as a means of HVDC control; and if successful;
Exploring if there are benefits to phasor measurement HVDC Control systems against present methods.
