The Western Interconnection Synchrophasor Program (WISP), the largest of the Smart Grid Investment Grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy in the Electric Transmission category, deployed massive synchrophasor system infrastructure to improve bulk electric system reliability. While more work is needed to realize the full potential of WISP, the West now has a time-synchronized, wide- area view of the Interconnection, a comprehensive data- sharing agreement among reliability entities, better generator models and other advanced applications.
