Date of Defense 2011-12-12 Availability restricted AbstractThe 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.
