The electric power industry is rapidly adopting synchrophasor technology. Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) provide high-resolution and time-synchronized data typically at 25 or 50 frames/second for 50 Hz systems and 30 or 60 frames/second for 60 Hz systems. This high resolution and time synchronized data provides unprecedented intelligence on power system dynamics that cannot be obtained from the traditional SCADA/EMS system. This intelligence is used in eGENS for:
When major grid events occur, information needs to be available to operators, engineers and managers in and outside control room. During major events, gathering event information could take several hours and operators do not have time for information dissemination.
The eGENS platform (enhanced Grid Event Notification System) addresses this need by providing an automated notification which alerts authorized subscribers via email and mobile devices when events occur and provides key event intelligence including location, timing and severity with map-based visualization. eGENS specifically addresses utility needs for grid event source localization using data from PMUs, DFRs and other IEDs.
