GE’s PhasorController, is a hardware and software platform designed to meet an increasing demand for a flexible programmable controller platform with a guaranteed response time suitable for wide area monitoring, protection, and control (WAMPAC) applications, capable of evolving throughout its deployed lifetime to meet ever more complex challenges.


The PhasorController platform provides a modular PLC environment capable of supporting a diverse range of inputs, including synchrophasors, as well as supporting a range of industry standard protocols. The platform offers a guaranteed response time, is capable of evolving over time, and can be further extended and optimized to manage emerging power system issues.

Improved automatic control based on synchrophasors

Prevent blackouts with a quick response to grid issues

Manage system constraints with automatic control

Continuous control to improve grid stability

Addressing challenges in the Icelandic grid

Iceland - Customer story for PhasorController | GE Digital

GE continues to work closely with Icelandic system operator, Landsnet, to further expand the use of WAMS and WACS. Several smart grid projects have been deployed in operational service using GE's PhasorController.

Benefits GE's PhasorController brings

Create Control Applications

Produce complex logic based on a wide range of data sources, including, IEEE C37.118, IEC 61850 MMS & GOOSE, IEC 60870-5-104 and MODBUS

Ensure Compliance

IEC 61131-3 PLC engine supporting FBD, LD, ST, and IL design

Low Latency Response

Due to hard real-time, fully deterministic platform with an execution cycle from 4ms to 20ms

Graceful Degradation

Built-in utilization and propagation of signal metadata, allowing for dynamic adjustment of controller performance based on data quality and availability
