Synchronized Measurement Systems

Building Synchrophiezed Measurement Systems for Future Grid Operations

Challenges in operating a present and future ComEd grid:  Operating ComEd’s power grid has some unique challenges. ComEd is a member of PJM but is surrounded by MISO control areas. In addition to strong connections to PJM system, the ComEd grid also has several connections to the neighboring MISO entities. Often the need for close operation coordination among affected entities arises when a disturbance or a change in normal operation in one entity’s grid may have a direct impact on nearby areas. Such needs could increase in operating the future transmission grids and require better grid visibility and faster response to the change. More
