This technical report was developed by the North American SynchroPhasor Initiative, a collaboration between the North American electric industry (utilities, grid operators, vendors and consultants), the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, academics, and the U.S. Department of Energy, to advance and accelerate the development and use of synchrophasor technology for grid reliability and efficiency. The material was produced for a visualization workshop, one of a series of NASPI technical workshops intended to educate and document the stakeholder community on the state of the art for key synchrophasor technology issues.
The workshop compared the visual presentations offered by several commercially available phasor data visualization software providers. The goal of the workshop was to look at how the visualization tools display specific grid events.
The report includes the final report for the workshop and the workshop agenda, as well as links to archived video clips of demonstrations shown during the February 2012 workshop.
