- A micro-PMU measures the time-synchronized magnitude and phase
distribution grid voltage and current.
- A micro-PMU generally offers higher accuracy (TVE < 0.01%) and a
high reporting rate (120 measurement reports per second)
compared to transmission grade PMU.
- Accurate data from
micro-PMU enable system analytics to determine the exact
sequence of events that have led to islands or a major

SCADA (pilot testbeds) is under progress.
MIT and IITD have been working to extend the design of the retail

provide system flexibility and reduce overall costs to the TSO.
- WSU and IITK team worked collaboratively to build federated
testbed by leveraging geographically distributed laboratory
USA and India. This setup was used to test and validate the large
fault response with DERs. Analyzed the effect of data rate on the
of the power measurements at the connection of the two test systems
finding the effective data rate for co-simulation. Models were
with BESS and Solar PV and exchanged between IITK and WSU. US-India
federated Testbed was the first of a kind testbed where data is
at such a large distance, and it studied the performance of the
co-simulation with respect to the data rate. In this testbed setup,
transmission and distribution systems were simulated in RTDS placed
different geographical locations.
- WSU, WVU, and IITR collaborated in developing the federated
cyber-physical simulation testbed to validate various control and
cyber resilient approaches for microgrids connected distribution
- Benchmarking rural feeder and semi-urban pilot models developed
team have been tested at
WSU for validating the different research and development
utilizing synthetic benchmark
- IITK rural benchmark has been co-modeled in ETAP, Gridlab-D, and
OpenDSS software for cross validation. A comparison of results
in different software has been performed by joint team members.
- Rural benchmark model and simulation results are being reviewed
and validated by an IEEE PES subcommittee to allow it to be
published as an IEEE PES benchmark microgrid model. The approval
the process is in progress and will be formally announced soon.
- Expert Lectures and Tutorials were conducted as a part of the
Power Systems Conference in IIT Gandhinagar (17-19 December
Electronics Drives and Energy System (PEDES) 16-19 December 2020
PES General Meeting 2020 and India Smart Utility Week 2021
2021), National Power system conference in IIT Delhi 2022 (17-19
- US researchers lead several panels at the IEEE PES General
Meetings and other prestigious conferences over the last three
years that included UI-ASSIST India and US speakers.
- UI-ASSIST continued its monthly webinars during the academic
year including presentations by India and US partners varying
different topics from individual partner capabilities and
facilities updates to theme research progress to India/US
collaboration research updates.
- Representatives from the US and India communications teams began
weekly meetings to discuss updating the website to include all
available public reports, publication references, and other
