Phasor Measurement Units and Wide Area Monitoring Systems presents complete coverage of phasor measurement units (PMUs), bringing together a rigorous academic approach and practical considerations on the implementation of PMUs to the power system. In addition, it includes a complete theory and practice of PMU technology development and implementation in power systems.
- Presents complete coverage of the topic from the measurement to the system, bringing together a rigorous academic approach and practical considerations on the implementation of PMUs to the power system
- Includes a complete proposal of implementation for a PMU platform that could be replicated in every laboratory
- Covers PMU software compiled for National Instrument HW, a compiled monitoring platform to be used to monitor PMU data and developed custom solutions, and a compiled National Instrument schematic to be executed within a SmartPhone app
During his time at the University of South Carolina before joining RWTH, Professor Monti was Associate Director of the Virtual Test Bed (VTB) project, which focusesd on computational simulation and visualisation of modern power distribution systems. His 4 main areas of research are Simulation of Complex Systems with focus on Real Time and Hardware in the Loop, Distributed Intelligence for Grid Automation, Advanced Monitoring Solution for Distribution Grids and Development of solution for Smart Home/Smart Cities applications
