Case Study – NASPI and Synchrophasor Technologies
US Department of Energy (DOE)

The “Northeast Blackout of 2003” ultimately affected 55 million people, cost billions of dollars, contributed to six deaths in New York City, and led to four million people in Detroit being under a “boil water” alert for four days. A U.S.-Canada investigation team uncovered many contributing factors, including a power plant going offline, poor tree trimming, inadequate operator training, and computer failures. The investigation team also found a lack of “situational awareness” on the part of grid operators and a failure of the reliability organizations to provide effective real-time diagnostic support. If grid operators had been equipped with tools to share real-time information on grid conditions that day, then the problem in northern Ohio might have been contained.
