Synchronized phasors (synchrophasors) provide a real-time measurement of electrical quantities from across the power system. Applications include wide-area control, system model validation, determining stability margins, maximizing stable system loading, islanding detection, system-wide disturbance recording, and visualization of dynamic system response. The basic system building blocks are GPS satellite-synchronized clocks, phasor measurement units (PMUs), a phasor data concentrator (PDC), communications equipment, and visualization software.
