Phasor Measurement Unit Laboratory

PHASOR MEASUREMENT UNIT TESTING OF PHASOR MEASUREMENT UNIT (PMU)/SYNCHROPHASOR USING FLUKE MAKE 6135A/PMUCAL PMU CALIBRATION SYSTEM Central Power Research Institute, Bangalore has established country first Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) test facility. Fluke make 6135A/PMUCAL Phasor Measurement Unit Calibration system is a automated system and traceable solution for PMU testing and Calibration. It’s a unique facility for carrying out Validation/Evaluation of PMU both M-class and P-Class steady state and Dynamic conditions as per IEEE C37.118.1-2011, IEEE C37.118.1a-2014, IEEE C37.242.2013, IEEE Synchrophasor Measurement Test suite Specification-Version 2-2015 and IEC/IEEE 60255.118.1:2018

The 6135A/PMUCAL system enables:

  • Calibrate and test a PMU from a client PC, either at the site of the test system or remotely over the Internet
  • Quickly set up a PMU test
  • Speed through automated calibration procedures
  • Provide the required static and dynamic voltage and current conditions that occur in a power distribution grid specified by the standard
  • Apply those signals to a phasor measurement unit
  • Capture the PMU’s reported results
  • Compare those results with the original stimulus
  • Evaluate against the thresholds defined in IEEE Std C37.118.1a™-2014 and IEC/IEEE 60255.118.1:2018
  • Create test reports, graphs and calibration certificates that can be readily printed or shared electronically
