WAMSTER selected as the supporting technology for CARWAMS
WAMSTER system and STER Portable PMU units will
be used for distributed synchrophasor measurements in CARWAMS (Croatian Academic Research Wide Area Measurement System) research project.
By the end of 2010, STER Portable PMU devices will be installed in various cities around Croatia by Studio Elektronike Rijeka.
During 2010 and 2011, these devices will be continuously measuring synchrophasor data and sending it to the WAMSTER system,
where it will be collected for real-time monitoring and detailed historical analysis by academic researchers.
Long term goal of CARWAMS research project it to define and establish better operation and improved reliability of the
integrated protection system in the Croatian power transmission network.
Synchronized measurement of phasors at separated geographical locations is one of
the key inputs for this research.
Role of WAMSTER system in this project is to provide zero-configuration devices and
cost effective services (portable “plug and play” measurement devices, collection and storage
of data to our dedicated data servers, online real-time monitoring using our web services, and detailed offline analysis
of downloaded data).
Offering this system as a complete service will allow the researchers to focus on actual analysis of the data, and
lower costs of necessary equipment and service personnel.
