NASPI (North American SynchroPhasor Initiative) Webinar - March 18th

NASPI invites all interested parties to attend NASPI’s first webinar on March 18, 2020 at 1:00 pm PT / 4:00 pm ET. To register for the webinar please visit the NASPI website at https://www.naspi.org/node/809.

During the webinar “Let’s Talk About Synchrophasors, PMUs & Applications” guest speaker Evangelos Farantatos, Senior Project Manager at EPRI, will be discussing:

  • An overview of synchrophasor technology and PMUs
  • Representative state-of-the-art PMU applications
  • Industry use cases that are based on vendor and/or research grade software tools.

In addition, given the transformations that the power systems industry is experiencing nowadays, especially with the massive integration of inverter-based resources (IBRs), a list of trending PMU applications and associated R&D efforts will be also discussed. Finally, limitations of PMUs for use in monitoring and control applications, especially in systems with high-levels of IBRs, will be presented, paving the way for the need of synchronized Point-on-Wave (POW) measurement data.


Date: Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Time: 1:00 pm PT / 4:00 pm ET

Webinar dial-in details will be sent with the registration confirmation. This webinar will be recorded and available to all registrants within a few days of the presentation.

Questions: Please contact Teresa Carlon at naspi@pnnl.gov.

About presenter: Evangelos Farantatos received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 2006 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. He is a Senior Project Manager with the Grid Operations and Planning R&D Group at EPRI, Palo Alto, CA. He is managing and leading the technical work of various R&D projects related to synchrophasor technology, power systems monitoring and control, power systems stability and dynamics, renewable energy resources modeling, grid operation with high levels of inverter-based resources and system protection. He is a Senior Member of IEEE. In summer 2009, he was an intern at MISO.
