Description: The Institute was founded in 1946 as the LAS Institute of Energetics and Machine-Building. As a result of the reorganization of the recent years, 12 laboratories function at the Institute, and the Latvian Technological Centre was founded in 1993 embracing 32 firms, mainly connected with the scientific research areas of the Institute of Physical Energetics.
PMU Test Lab
Description: PMU Test Lab consist Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) laboratory facility for the development and test of innovative techniques and tools for analysis of transmission technologies and identification of the best technology solutions and implemented devices, as well as evaluation of its impact on power system under liberalized market conditions, including planed HVDC interconnections. – A phasor measurement unit (PMU) or synchrophasor is a device, which measures the electrical waves on an electricity grid. A phasor is a complex number that represents both the magnitude and phase angle of the sine waves found in electricity. Synchronization is complete by Global Positioning System (GPS). – A phasor data concentrator (PDC) receives and time-synchronizes phasor data from multiple phasor measurements units (PMU) to produce a real-time, time-aligned output data stream and drop defective data.
