- Description of Startup:
- Over 2,000 phasor measurement units (PMUs) have been installed to date throughout the US, capturing time series describing system voltages and currents at rates of up to 120 samples per second. All told, over two billion sensor values per day are captured that describe the daily operation of the grid. For the first time, we have the data and ability to explore the operation of power grids, and to identify and explain anomalous behavior in order to protect our power grids from the catastrophe.
