Design and Implementation of a Novel WAMPACSystem for Power Network


R. S. Rajprasad


The proposed module is an innovative version, which is developed to prove as an effective alternative model to the existing modules of Phasor Measurement Units (PMU), ensuring feasible and reliable operation at very low design cost. The intricate design and circuitry involved in the WAMPAC systems are replaced with a cost-effective equivalent module for distribution feeders. Remote monitoring and control of the system is effectively designed so as to reduce the involvement of manpower and ease the outlook of complexity in power system protection.
