Technical workshop (October 28)
NASPI will host a complimentary Train-the-Trainer technical workshop on October 28, 2019 from 1:00-5:00PM at The Westin Richmond. Train-the-Trainer is presented by Michael Cassiadoro, Total Reliability Solutions, LLC. This session is intended for grid operator and electric utility trainers that wish to incorporate the eight-hour Use of Time Synchronized Measurements in Real-Time Operations training course into their respective training programs. We will explain how the course was designed, review the course materials to ensure underlying knowledge requirements are met, and provide pointers on how customize the training materials to meet your company’s specific needs. No registration is required to attend the Train-the-Trainer technical workshop.

Poster Session (October 29)
 The poster session will be held the evening of October 29, 2019. Thank you to those of you who submitted a poster abstract.

Teresa Carlon

The North American SynchroPhasor Initiative (NASPI) Work Group meeting will be held in San Diego, California April 15-17, 2019. We invite members of the broad synchrophasor community to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the meeting.  We are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that showcase innovative and novel applications of synchrophasor technology, to solve operational or planning electric power reliability and resilience challenges.  We are also particularly interested in wide-area streaming applications of high-speed (so-called “point-on-wave”) time-synchronized measurements. To complement this topic, we encourage abstracts associated with inverter-based generation and renewable power integration, including ameliorating issues associated with low inertia future scenarios and the ability to maintain essential reliability services.

April 15, 2019 - The NASPI meeting will be kicked off with the Technical Workshop on Communication and Networking Issues, organized by Dan Brancaccio. The workshop agenda and any shareable presentation will be posted on the NASPI Workshop webpage.

A big congratulations to the 2017 NASPI Awardees. Without you, NASPI would not have seen all its successes over the years. You are what makes NASPI happen! Keep up the great work.

Press release: Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability: Recognizing the people behind the technology; NASPI 2017 Awards.

The North American Synchrophasor Initiative (NASPI) held its spring meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, April 24-26, 2018. This meeting featured technical sessions and presentations on new synchrophasor-based applications for planning or operational purposes, as well as uses that enhance the reliability and resilience of the power system. We shared and discussed new research in the synchrophasor technology deployment and advanced analytics. Robert W Cummings, the Senior Director of Engineering and Reliability Initiatives for the North American Electric Reliability Corporation delivered the keynote speech.

On April 24 from 8:30AM – 12:00PM NASPI hosted an optional technical workshop - Emerging Network and Communications Technologies. Learn more about the NASPI Technical Workshop.
