Managing power system stability and responding to system disturbances

Power systems are experiencing fundamental change in the way they are managed, driven by the changing energy landscape and growing demand for electricity. Increasing volumes of renewables coupled with reducing inertia and more sensitive voltage profiles are creating more complex issues for system operators.

 

WAMS provides visibility that is based on real-time data streamed from Phasor Measurement Units (PMU). A host of WAMS software applications use this data to provide context-specific information, presented through an intuitive user interface. GE’s WAMS solution complements traditional SCADA-based energy management to deliver fast and proactive grid stability management to meet the complex challenges of modern power systems.

WAMS: Tackling the dynamics of the grid

Enhance situational awareness and proactive grid management, maximizing transfer capacity

Mitigate risks of major disturbance and blackout through enhanced monitoring and control

Reduce time spent in emergency operational states with accelerated resynchronization and balancing

Improved dynamic monitoring based on PMU data

Supports synchrophasor-based protection and control and tuning of generator and load dynamic performance

Delivering the power system visibility and insights required to optimize and safeguard stability
