Synchrophasor

With Powerside’s advanced power quality technology, you can measure and observe the complex and dynamic power flows in distribution grids and micro-grids. The microPMU is akin to a microscope that has microsecond resolution and milli-degree accuracy required for distribution grid applications. 

Research laboratories and universities use the microPMU worldwide to assess the impact of the growing penetration of renewables.  

Applications

The microPMU is perfect for projects that need ultra-precise synchrophasor measurements to investigate stability and impedance questions. Identify and characterize events. Detect topology changes (open/closed state of switches). Detect cyber attacks rehearsals at substations.
