The development of Smart Grid and an increased emphasis on Wide Area Measurement,

Automation, Protection and Control (WAMPAC) has lead to the substantial increase in the

development and use of Synchrophasor Systems. The Department of Energy having realized its

importance in the Power System has encouraged its deployment through the Smart Grid

Investment Grant. With many utilities beginning to implement a large number of PMUs over

their respective power systems, Phasor Data Concentrators (PDCs) play a crucial part in

accurately relaying data from the point of measurement to the operators at the control center. The

current Synchrophasor standard, IEEE C37.118-2005 covers adequately the steady state

characterization of PMUs but does not specify requirements for PDCs. Having recognized the

need for such a standard for PDCs, the North American Synchrophasor Initiative (NASPI) has

developed a guide outlining some of its objectives, functions and tests requirements. Virginia

Tech has developed a PDC Test System under these guidelines and as per the requirements of the

PJM Synchrophasor Systems Deployment Project. This thesis focuses on the testing tools

developed and the procedures implemented in the Virginia Tech PDC Test System.
