VIZIMAX is now certified by IEEE Standard Association

Complying with IEEE Synchrophasor Measurement Test Suite Specification requirements, VIZIMAX's PMU is among the first to receive IEEE phasor measurement unit (PMU) certification.

MONTREAL, March 23, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - VIZIMAX Inc., a leading provider of advanced equipment to monitor, control and manage electric power infrastructure across multiple sectors, is proud to announce today that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) certified its PMU as complying with all requirements in the IEEE Synchrophasor Measurement Test Suite Specification—Version 2.

To receive this certification, the Vizimax PMU 010000 underwent all required tests established by the IEEE Synchrophasor Conformity Assessment Steering Committee (SCASC) which was completed at Consumers Energy Laboratory Services an IEEE-authorized independent laboratory. With this certification, VIZIMAX is moving the industry forward by offering a unique PMU solution that addresses industry challenges.

"As a recognized leader in innovative solutions for the Energy Market, VIZIMAX is developing state-of-the-art products,'' said Jean-Guy Lacombe, President and CEO of VIZIMAX. "As PMUs are rapidly becoming an important component of the Smart Grid for transmission and distribution, this led us to develop a high-performance PMU as a natural extension of VIZIMAX's product line showcasing our technological leadership."

''The IEEE Synchrophasor Certification Program was developed to offer suppliers and end-users of PMU technology worldwide, a method to determine compliance to the IEEE C37.118.1aTM standard", said Ravi Subramaniam, Technical Director, IEEE Conformity Assessment Program. "Certification of PMU 010000 marks a significant achievement for Vizimax as they get listed on IEEE's certified PMUs registry."

VIZIMAX's PMU offers fast, reliable and accurate measurements exceeding C37.118 requirements for both M and P class. Its reporting rate, of up to 240 frames per second, and its resilience to harmonics, sub-harmonics and interferences allow fast operations meeting the highest performance requirements for Remedial Action Scheme Systems. Its outstanding performance in stressed power systems help improving situational awareness, power angle/voltage/frequency monitoring, and dynamic stability analysis. Combined with the RightWON™ automation platform, advanced P&C and protocol conversion applications can be realized. This automation platform also includes a C37.118 client.

VIZIMAX develops and manufactures innovative solutions to optimize how we generate, move and consume energy. VIZIMAX helps its clients to better control, monitor and master their energy related equipment, resulting in major cost savings while making the most of their assets.
