PC37.118.2

Standard for Synchrophasor Data Transfer for Power Systems

This standard defines a method for exchange of synchronized phasor measurement data between power system equipment. It specifies messaging including types, use, contents, and data formats for real-time communication between phasor measurement units (PMU), phasor data concentrators (PDC), and other applications. This revision includes i) communications between a single PMU and a PDC, ii) PDC functions dealing with multiple PMUs, and iii) onwards communications from the PDC.

C37.118.2-2011

IEEE Standard for Synchrophasor Data Transfer for Power Systems

A method for real-time exchange of synchronized phasor measurement data between power system equipment is defined. This standard specifies messaging that can be used with any suitable communication protocol for real-time communication between phasor measurement units (PMU), phasor data concentrators (PDC), and other applications. It defines message types, contents, and use. Data types and formats are specified. A typical measurement system is described. Communication options and requirements are described in annexes.
