Phasor measurement unit (PMU) TPA-02 is intended for measuring the current and voltage phasors with a precise timestamping and subsequent transmission to a vector data multiplexer according to the C37.118 protocol.

Main functions

  • Measuring of current and voltage in the network being monitored
  • Current phase angle calculation (per phase)
  • Voltage phase angle calculation (per phase)
  • Line frequency calculation
  • Frequency rate of change calculation
  • Measurement of generator excitation system`s current and voltage
  • Time synchronization using precise time GLONASS/GPS signals
  • Data transmission over C37.118 protocol
