Application of Advanced Wide Area Early Warning Systems with Adaptive Protection
Previous research has indicated that the use of wide area synchrophasor measurements can be of significant value in reducing the likelihood of false trips by protection systems and reducing the likelihood of protection systems contributing to a cascading blackout. This project will co-fund a DOE- sponsored demonstration of synchrophasor based protection systems and a protection information tool for visualization of results, to be performed by PG&E and SCE under actual electric system conditions.
