Wide Area Schemes & PMU’s

Power and precision for a stronger grid

De-risk WAMPAC systems by simulating or testing PMUs

Wide area monitoring, protection, and control (WAMPAC) systems have great potential to provide real-time information on the health of the network via monitoring, and to significantly increase power security and reliability via protection and control actions. Transformative systems such as wide area protection and control are often off the table unless they come fully de-risked and validated. The RTDS Simulator allows engineers to represent the behaviour of the network in real time, over a wide frequency range, enabling them to perform Hardware-in-the-Loop testing. Real-time simulation with WAMPAC schemes in a closed loop is the fastest and safest way to demonstrate operation, and mitigate risks prior to deployment.
