Synchronized sampling and phasor measurements for relaying and control Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper describes the concept of utilizing time synchronized sampling over an entire power system to simultaneously obtain the phasor values of voltages and currents at particular instants of time. Uses of the phasors are reviewed and the necessary accuracy of synchronization for several applications is established for magnitude and angle of the phasors. Various methods of providing synchronizing signals are examined, and a possible format for transmitting the phasor measurements to remote locations is described. Finally, some possibilities for applications of this technique in protection and control tasks of the future are explored. 1993 IEEE.
