Superseded Standard

IEEE C37.242-2013

IEEE Guide for Synchronization, Calibration, Testing, and Installation of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) for Power System Protection and Control

Guidance for synchronization, calibration, testing, and installation of phasor measurement units (PMUs) applied in power systems is provided. The following are addressed in this guide: (a) Considerations for the installation of PMU devices based on application requirements and typical substation electrical bus configurations; (b) Techniques focusing on the overall accuracy and availability of the time synchronization system; (c) Test and calibration procedures for PMUs for laboratory and field applications; (d) Communications testing for connecting PMUs to other devices including Phasor Data Concentrators (PDCs).
