Emerging smart grid technology offers the possibility of a more reliable, efficient, and flexible energy infrastructure. A core component of the smart grid are phasor measurement units (PMUs) which offer the ability to capture time-coherent measurements across a geographically distributed area. However, due to the fast sampling rate of these devices, a(More)
Modern power systems have begun integrating synchrophasor technologies into part of daily operations. Given the amount of solutions offered and the maturity rate of application development it is not a matter of “if” but a matter of “when” in regards to these technologies becoming ubiquitous in control centers around the world. While the benefits are(More)
Phasor measurement units (PMUs) are widely used in power transmission systems to provide synchronized measurements for the purpose of fault detection. However, how to efficiently deploy those devices across a power grid – so that a comprehensive coverage can be provided at a relatively low cost – remains a challenge. In this paper, we present a sensitivity(More)
