Changes Required in the PMU standards


The Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) is a representational measuring instrument that gives time-stamped measurements of the power system on the assumption that the measurand can be represented as sinusoidal. However, two standards defining the measured quantities unnecessarily corrupt the results and limit the capabilities of the PMU, and are beginning to tax communications systems. This paper examines the two mistakes in the PMU standards, and proposes a solution.
