What´s a synchrophasor? Discover the technology is bringing the electrical grid into the 21st century

Synchrophasor, a word that may sound like if we were involved in "Back to the Future" movie, is not a science fiction product but a device that is changing the electrical sectorThe electrical sector is living a revolution called synchrophasor. This device, that is changing the grid as we actually know it, can measure the instantaneous voltage, current and frequency at specific locations on the grid, a revolutionary method that will change the way that this grid works. A crucial step to reach the smart grid concept.What is Synchrophasor useful for?Well, now we´ve discovered this new device, we have to keep on searching to know its main utility. Synchrophasor has changed the way we can check the status of the grid, but why? Basically operators have a near-real-time picture...
