This chapter focuses on the introduction of synchrophasor technology and its practical use for enhancing real-time monitoring and control of the electric grid. Many real-life examples have been illustrated with the help of case studies. Realtime event analysis and low-frequency oscillation monitoring are the most basic applications of synchrophasor data which is possible with only a small number of PMUs deployed. Cause analysis of critical incidence and applying corrective action are some other areas where PMUs data is utilised for improvement of the grid performance.
