and other agencies that support synchrophasor related activities.
"Challenging Changing Landscapes"
by Madani, Giri, Kosterev, Novosel, and
Brancaccio, our second article, presents the
efforts in the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) of the United States
utilizing synchrophasor technology in
grid management. The article summarizes
various applications deployed throughout
WECC and presents some key implementation success factors.
Our third article, "Strategies for Success with Synchrophasors" by Jones, Cano,
Chen, Robinson, Thomas, and Gardner,
presents the ongoing activities in the
Eastern region of the United States in
using synchrophasor technology. The activities by PJM, New York Independent
System Operator, and Dominion Virginia
Power and Electric Power Group in applying this technology are presented.
"Synchrophasors Across Texas" by
Koellner, Burks, Blevins, Nuthalapati, Rajagopalan, and Holloway, our
fourth presentation, reviews ERCOT's

applications of synchrophasor technology. A Phasor Measurement Task Force
was formed in ERCOT where stakeholders were invited to participate and industry
experts were invited to attend and present
material from which the group could
learn. This article presents the details of
the task force and efforts by ERCOT to
utilize synchrophasor technology.
The fifth article, "Monitoring Continental Europe" by Sattinger and Giannuzzi, looks at those parts of the Europe using synchrophasor technology
and illustrates examples of some applications that were deployed in the region.
"The View from the Wide Side" by
Soonee, V.K. Agrawal, P.K. Agarwal, Narasimhan, and Thomas, presents the efforts
in India's implementation of synchrophasor technology and reviews the challenges
encountered in WAMS implementations.
Our final article, "Advancing China's Smart Grid" by Lu, Shi, Wu, and
Sun, looks at China's experiences with
synchrophasor technology was well as
the applications that use the data.

These articles provide an overview of
the synchrophasor technology being used
in different parts of the world in managing
the power grid. It is evident that this technology is now mature and is helping to
improve the grid's reliability. Several projects that are part of government-funded
technology demonstration projects have
provided the confidence in this technology
and will help power system grid operators
to use this technology in large-scale implementations. We are very pleased to offer
this issue on synchrophasor technology
in managing the grid with the hope that
utilities can benefit from these articles and
move forward in using this technology for
grid management.
We would like to thank all the authors for their time and effort in preparing the articles for this issue and to
the editorial board of IEEE Power &
Energy Magazine for the opportunity
to present these experiences. Special
thanks to Editor-in-Chief Mel Olken
for his support.
