3 Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) : use GPS Satellite Wide Area Monitoring System use a GPS satellite signal to time-synchronize from phasor measurement units (PMUs) at important nodes in the power system, send real-time phasor (angle and magnitude) data to a Control Centre. The acquired phasor data provides dynamic information on power systems, which helps operators to initiate corrective actions to enhance the power system reliability. GPS satellite PMU WAMS & PMU
4 Installation of PMUs at critical nodes in Power Systems. GPS synchronized current and voltage phasor measurement. Time resolution: < 10 – 6 s Measurement quality: 0.1% of U and I and Angle accuracy of < +/- 0.05% Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) : System Configuration High precision data acquisition WAMS & PMU
5 Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) : Project in 2005 EGAT installation Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) Inter-area oscillation on the tie transmission line between the Central system and the Southern system is one of the important problems which lead to reduce stability and security of the transmission system. To prevent system from inter-area oscillation, Wide Area Monitoring System (WAMS) was installed at the Central system and the Southern system in 2005 to monitor the stability of this power transmission network. WAMS & PMU Bottleneck in transmission corridor: Limit due to concerns about power oscillation, the origin, amplitude, frequency, usual duration and damping of oscillation are not know

7 Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) : PMU Installation EGAT installation Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) Phasors Monitoring Units (PMUs) are installed at Bang Saphan and Surathani Substation and use a GPS satellite signal to time- synchronize voltage and current readings as they are taken from both substations. Data can be streamed into a Control Center from far-flung points in the grid, where it is evaluated to give grid operators a precise picture of what is happening in their system, online. They can also finally see what is happening beyond their own control area – an advance over traditional monitoring and protection methods. WAMS & PMU WAMS Benefit: Detect of oscillation, Assessment of power system damping, Oscillation Monitoring, Increase power transfer at defined security, and Early warning to avoid power system collapse.
9 The project has upgraded from the existing of Digital Fault Recorder (DFR), totally 6 sites and 14 PMUs installed. This is as the pilot project to test the function of PMU on DFR platform. Phasor Data Concentrator (PDC) and its software application has been installed in the server and its display available at the operator console for visualization. This project has only used for monitoring purpose and observe the system in broader scale.. Wide Area Monitoring (WAMS) : Project in 2010 WAMS & PMU

22 Conclusion EGAT has installed WAMS & PMU since 2005, for monitoring and resolution of power oscillation problem between Central and Southern region. In 2010, more project has installed for visualization of power system in broader scale. The capabilities of PMU for high precision, speed of response and GPS time synchronization make PMU very appropriate for wide area monitoring for protection and control. An Advanced early warning technology for power grids that helps operators to ensure grid reliability by detecting and counteracting the first signs of grid instability. Trend for the Smart Grid for the future. WAMS & PMU
