RTDMS is a comprehensive platform for real-time wide-area analysis and monitoring using Synchrophasor data for use in control centers. RTDMS functions include data management, analysis and archiving; real-time visualization; and remote client access via the Intelligent Synchrophasor Gateway (ISG). The data functions include data parsing, bad data detection and handling, calculations, and advanced algorithms including event detection, mode meter, sensitivity, oscillation, islanding detection, etc. The visualization provides a dashboard with all key metrics including frequency, phase angles, power flows, voltages, damping and other key metrics available to operators at a glance for comprehensive wide-area real-time visualization and situational awareness.
The use of RTDMS enables users to:
RTDMS provides displays that enable the user to monitor the entire power grid, diagnose events occurring in the system and take required actions. The situational awareness dashboard provides geospatial displays and views for metrics such as phase angle differences, voltages, frequencies and power flows. Alarms and event analyzer popups in RTDMS enable quick and easy detection and diagnosis of the events as to identifying the time, location and the severity of the event.
