NASPI Technical Workshop Model Validation Using Synchrophasor Data

Oct 22, 2013
Rosemont , Illinois
Alison Silverstein

This workshop provided a detailed grounding in the benefits of using synchrophasor data for electric system and power plant model validation and explain the process and steps for doing so. Presenters addressed recent requirements and opportunities for model validation, provided an overview of generator and power system models and model validation tools, and explained what synchrophasor data are needed for power plant and system model validation. Several speakers provided detailed briefings on the process and results of several specific cases where synchrophasor data have been successfully used for power plant model validation, identification of inappropriate asset operations, and dynamic grid models.
