Real Time Synchrophasor Data Capture on the Distribution Grid Achieved by Industry Partnership

Switchgear Engineering Firm NOJA Power today announce the achievement of real-time Synchrophasor data streaming, warehousing and visualization as part of the Australian Government’s ARENA agency project

Utilities and research institutions in the project can now access live, real-time distribution network Synchrophasor data of the Australian distribution network at a granularity a hundred times higher than previous data acquisition methods such as SCADA.

This important milestone and world first achievement shows the technological viability of building a cloud-based secure data path to aggregate and share real-time electrical distribution network data to enable research into renewable energy integration and distribution network stability under a changing generation mix.
