Joint Outreach Program with ABB
June 2015 | Haris M. Khalid and Jimmy C.-H.Peng
At PSRL, an agreement was signed with ABB substation automation team to showcase its Phasor measurement unit (PMU) (RS670). The device provides dedicated synchorphasor monitoring function, and is designed for power transmission grids. It has been installed in PSRL lab at Masdar Institute, providing an addition to our existing PMU setup. Together, with ABB, the aim was to demonstrate the benefits of utilizing PMU measurements to increase real-time situational awareness. Both students and industrial collaborators will be able to conduct tutorials and conformity tests using them. Meanwhile, RS670 will serve as a reference unit for testing the prototype PMU device PSRL is currently developing. We look forward the collaboration with ABB substation automation team in the coming future.
