Objectives The VISOR project demonstrated successfully PMU wide area monitoring. Building on the learning from VISOR the project will explore the different system architectures that facilitate the required PMU functionality. All Transmission Owners are required to comply with the STC and therefore will need to install infrastructure that meets the requirements associated with managing PMUs data. The starting point is to help identify how to progress a solution, the system architectural options that will achieve the required functionality and enable internal discussion to select a suitable solution. Produce a report that outlines the different system architectures options available for managing PMU information.
Abstract The System Operator Transmission Owner Code (STC) has been amended recently to include, for future requirements, the transfer of elements of Phasor Monitoring Unit (PMU) data directly to the National Grid System Operator. SSEN presently views PMU data on the Secondary Operational Network (2nd OTN) by directly contacting the PMU. SSEN has no facility to actively gather the PMU data, nor is it possible to make elements of PMU information available to a third party.
