Release Date
Document Subject Area
Distribution Task Team


The mission of the NASPI Distribution Task Team is to foster the use and capabilities of networked PMUs at the medium-voltage distribution level, beyond the substation. This group will share information in support of effective research, development and deployment of distribution PMUs. We aim to create a community to solve technical and other challenges specific to distribution PMU technology and applications.

This report provides a discussion of uses for time-synchronized measurements in electric grid operation, spanning both power transmission and distribution. As an update to the 2018 DisTT Report, it is intended to inform decisions to deploy available measurement technologies in a manner that addresses urgent needs of real-world practitioners.
