Synchro-measurement Application Development Framework (SADF) is a MATLAB supported library to facilitate simplified design and online validation of advanced closed-loop control Wide Area Monitoring, Protection, and Control (WAMPAC) applications, as well as PMU/PDC performance and compliance verification under realistic conditions. The SADF enables a seamless integration between the Synchronized Measurement Technology (SMT) supported electric power system and synchro-measurement supported user-defined applications. This is done by online receiving and parsing of IEEE Std. C37.118-2005 and C37.118.2-2011 specified machine-readable messages into a human-readable MATLAB format. SADF enables receiving of TCP, UDP, or TCP/UDP synchro-measurement data stream by using either "commanded" or "spontaneous" mode. Combining this library with MATLAB's signal processing and visualization functions allows mastering the design and validation of complex WAMPAC applications.
