Title: PMU rollout at EPFL campus – A real-scale laboratory for synchrophasor applications
Abstract: Zaphiro presents the roll-out of a PMU monitoring infrastructure in the entire medium-voltage grid of the EPFL university campus in Lausanne, Switzerland. The presentation elaborates on the technical challenges and solutions developed by Zaphiro’s engineers as well as field measurements and relevant outcomes. In particular, the presentation focuses on three main aspects: (1) deployment of a non-invasive sensing infrastructure, (2) wide-area PMU synchronisation via PTP, (3) field results of Zaphiro’s state estimation and fault location techniques.
