ABB Middle East Seminar Featuring PSRL Research
May 2015 | Haris M. Khalid and Jimmy C.-H.Peng
PSRL Research was featured in ABB Middle East seminar. The workshop inspired many constructive discussions related to the development of PMU technology and potential WAMS benefits from the industrial and academic audience. Presented materials received positive feedback, and further supported the notion to commission more PMU related projects in TRANSCO and GCC Interconnection networks. This was emphased by our fellow TRANSCO engineers. Similar to western utilities, increasing the situational awareness of power grids is crucial to sustain a healthy and reliability electricity trading markets in the coming years. Emerging challenges for GCC utilities are optimizing PMU locations, and establishing WAMS for tracking inter-area oscillations. These issues are currently being investigated by research conducted at PSRL. Together, with our local industry partners, the future of PMUs and WAMS applications is promising in UAE.
