2007-06 Wide area monitoring, protection and control (WAMPAC) of power systems
June 12-14, 2007


  Synchronized Measurement Technologies (SMT), such as Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) have resulted in the design and application of various wide area monitoring, protection and control (WAMPAC) schemes. Most provide significant reliability and financial benefits in the planning, operation and maintenance of power networks at both the distribution and transmission level.

This course is designed to ensure electrical and electronic engineers involved in the design, operation and maintenance of electrical power networks and the associated primary and secondary plant have the knowledge and skills necessary to deploy synchronized measurement technology in WAMPAC applications. The course is structured so that the first half focuses on technical and implementation issues, while the second half addresses applications and benefits. Special two Demo-Sessions are prepared to demonstrate WAMPAC features.


Prof. Vladimir Terzija (

   Vladimir Terzija is the EPSRC Chair Professor in Power System Engineering in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Manchester, where he has been since 2006. From 1997 to 1999, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Belgrade. In 1999, he was Humboldt Research Fellow at Saarland University in Germany. From 2000 to 2006, he was with ABB AG, Germany, as an expert for switchgears and distribution automation. His main research interests are switchgears, DSP applications in power systems, and application of intelligent methods to power system monitoring, control, and protection. He is a senior member of IEEE and member of IET. In the past, he published over 150 papers and four text books.
