CA's principal led and completed the design and implementation a large program to install phasor measurement units (PMUs) across National Grid US's transmission network across northeast US. CA's co-founder, Mr. Sandeep Baidwan acted as the Project and Program Manager for this project, which involved installing PMUs across National Grid's most critical high voltage substations across its service territory in New England and New York. The PMUs provided real-time, sub-second situational awareness for the transmission network to the National Grid, the NYISO, and the ISO-New England, the regional transmission organizations for New England and New York. As a result, the PMUs installed as part of the smart grid infrastructure help provided proactive assessment of critical and damaging disturbances on the grid, and helps avoid catastrophic even such as system instability and loss of synchronization that may eventually lead to cascading blackouts.
This specific smart grid project was sponsored by and financed through grants from the Department of Energy through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
