Abstract

We consider synchrophasor data gathering method over the network of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) for Wide Area Measurement System (WAMS) applications. Although this network plays an important role to monitor, protect and control distribution electric grid, the research efforts in efficient data collection method are lacking in the literature. In this paper, we represent a novel data gathering approach using Network Coding technique and develop a mathematic model to predict the PMUs network reliability using our proposed model. It allows the PMU nodes in network to perform linear combination of many packets in order to improve the packet delivering ratio at the collector. We demonstrate our proposed method using a distribution grid test case and evaluate the performance by using Monter Carlo simulation. The numerical results have verified the effectiveness of our proposed method.
