This project addresses the emerging solution of wide area
monitoring, protection and control systems focusing on the
technologies, communications architecture and end user
This technology could address the growing uncertainties and
dynamics posed by the evolution and development of the UK
Transmission Network, particularly with respect to system
development and performance and secure operation.
The key objective of the 1st stage of this project is to evaluate the
technology, interoperability and application of Phasor Measurement
Units. This will involve laboratory scenario testing and deployment on
Transmission systems to baseline and track current and emerging
network stability issues. The work is collaborative and shared with
Scottish Power, Scottish and Southern Electricity, Northern Ireland
Electricity and ESBI (Ireland). Units will be deployed across to collect
data for research purposes and validated against systems models.
The work will support the development of next generation data and
