Sarma (NDR) Nuthalapati, PhD Principal EMS Network Applications Engineer, PEAK Reliability, Vancouver, WA, USA Date: Tuesday, October 24, 2017 Time: Refreshments – 6pm, Talk – 6:30pm Location: National Grid, 40 Sylvan Road, Waltham, MA 02451 (Rooms: Valley A&B) Abstract: To realize the vision of the future smart electric grid, advanced technological solutions such as real-time measurements of synchrophasors need to be integrated into the existing power system operation and control practices. Phasor measurement units (PMUs) provide synchronized measurements at high rates for enhanced wide area situational awareness and decision support using new applications. There have been several large scale implementations of synchrophasor technology in managing the grid across the world. Efforts are in place to take this technology into control room operations and develop good operational procedures to better manage the grid with wide area visualization tools using PMU data. This talk presents some basics of synchrophasors and discusses some use cases of synchrophasors in managing the grid.

Dr. Sarma (NDR) Nuthalapati obtained his B.Tech and M.Tech (Power Systems) degrees from National Institute of Technology, Warangal, in 1983 and 1986 respectively and Ph.D. degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 1995. Since, Feb 2017, he is working at PEAK Reliability as Principal EMS Network Applications Engineer. Prior to joining PEAK Reliability, he had worked for about eight years at ERCOT and was involved in a Synchrophasor Project funded by DOE under the Smart Grid Initiatives Grants. He is currently the Chair of the IEEE Task Force on Real Time Contingency Analysis. He is also active at the NASPI Working Group meetings and was given NASPI Control Room Solutions Task Team Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award for ‘being a leading organizer and contributor to the Control Room Solutions Task Team (CRSTT) and the NERC Synchronized Measurement Subcommittee and a public champion for Synchrophasor Technology’. He is currently working on a book on ‘Power System Grid Operations Using Synchrophasor Technology’ to be published by Springer. He is a senior member of IEEE and a member of IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES). He is also a distinguished lecture in the IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP).
