Synthesize Phasor Measurement Unit Data Using Large-Scale Electric Network Models Conference Paper uri icon


  • Bigdata analytic applications using phasor measurements help improve the situation awareness of grid operators to better operate and control the system. Phasor measurement unit (PMU) data from actual grids is viewed as highly confidential and is not publicly available to researchers and educators. This paper develops a methodology to synthesize PMU data that can be accessed and shared freely, with a focus on input data preparation. Time series of demand- and generation-side input data are generated using public data from different utilities and statistical analysis methods. Detailed load dynamics modeling is also performed in this paper to extend the synthetic electric network models.
