In order to achieve a production quality phasor monitoring system that can be relied upon in real-time operations, three conditions must be met:
The data quality analysis project addressed the first condition of reliable data from PMU to the operator's console. This project was carried out for Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) as a part of the CCET Discovery Across Texas Project Funded by DOE.
The study identified 7 different previously unknown data quality issues in different parts of the synchrophasor network.
The project provided the following benefits:
