Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the software implementation of a real-time mode estimator application and its testing. The application was developed to estimate inter-area modes from both ambient and ring-down synchrophasor data from multiple phasor measurement units (PMU). The software application was implemented in LabVIEW using Statnett's synchrophasor software development kit (S3DK), to receive real-time synchrophasor measurements. The different features of the application were tested using two types of experiments presented herein. The first experiment is performed using emulated signals from a simple linear model. The second experiment was designed to use a linearized representation of the KTH-Nordic32 power system model. These experiments are used to carry out quantitative analyses of the tool's performance.
