GE Power to deliver world’s largest Wide Area Monitoring System (WAMS) in India

GE Power’s Grid Solutions business announced the commissioning of the first leg of the mega grid-stabilising project. The project begins by handing over what will be the worlds largest WAMS over to the Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) for the northern grid in India.

The Indian electricity network is the world’s largest synchronised grid with a capacity of 363 gigawatts. GE’s WAMS should address imbalances in power demand and supply, ensure overall grid stability, as well as protecting from cybersecurity threats.

This first stage will enable PGCIL to monitor power flow across 110 substations in the Northern Grid (NR) and respond to fluctuations within a fraction of a second.

When fully commissioned, this new WAMS solution will be the world’s largest comprised of 1,184 Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) and 34 control centres across India, 350 substations in the national grid. Read More
