We are pleased to announce the October NASPI Work Group meeting will be held in Richmond, VA, on October 28 - 30, 2019.  This meeting will feature invited user success stories, NASPI Technology Partner Presentations, vendor show, and poster session. You will hear presentations from companies and individuals who are using synchrophasor technology successfully to solve specific challenges and the lessons they learned along the way. Our distinguished keynote speaker will be an executive from Dominion Energy, Inc.

Technical workshop
NASPI will host a complimentary Train-the-Trainer technical workshop on October 28, 2019 from 1:00-5:00PM at The Westin Richmond. Train-the-Trainer is presented by Michael Cassiadoro, Total Reliability Solutions, LLC. This session is intended for grid operator and electric utility trainers that wish to incorporate the eight-hour Use of Time Synchronized Measurements in Real-Time Operations training course into their respective training programs. We will explain how the course was designed, review the course materials to ensure underlying knowledge requirements are met, and provide pointers on how customize the training materials to meet your company’s specific needs. No registration is required to attend the Train-the-Trainer technical workshop.

Vendor Show / Technology Partner Presentations
Please note that the Vendor Show will take place October 29-30, 2019! Vendors will have an opportunity to obtain an area, setup and be available both days to show case your synchrophasor products. In addition,
we are encouraging the partners to participate in our first ever NASPI Technology Partner Presentations. Each partner will have approximately 5 minutes to address the entire Work Group audience. Partners, this is your opportunity to share your work, technological advancements, innovative ideas, and updates with the larger group which we hope will foster further networking and collaboration. Please read through the NASPI Partnership Opportunity document and become familiar with the various support levels offered to participate as a partner in the NASPI Work Group meeting. If you have questions, do not hesitate to send an email to

NASPI Work Group Meeting, April 16-17 - San Diego, CA

Teresa Carlon

The North American SynchroPhasor Initiative (NASPI) Work Group meeting will be held in San Diego, California April 15-17, 2019. We invite members of the broad synchrophasor community to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the meeting.  We are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that showcase innovative and novel applications of synchrophasor technology, to solve operational or planning electric power reliability and resilience challenges.  We are also particularly interested in wide-area streaming applications of high-speed (so-called “point-on-wave”) time-synchronized measurements. To complement this topic, we encourage abstracts associated with inverter-based generation and renewable power integration, including ameliorating issues associated with low inertia future scenarios and the ability to maintain essential reliability services.

April 15, 2019 - The NASPI meeting will be kicked off with the Technical Workshop on Communication and Networking Issues, organized by Dan Brancaccio. The workshop agenda and any shareable presentation will be posted on the NASPI Workshop webpage.
