This paper describes a software platform used for the testing of phasor measurement unit (PMU) algorithms. The platform is implemented in MATLAB and consists of two parts. The first one permits the insertion of the simulation parameters, whereas the second one is the actual simulator for the algorithms. This second program contains a waveform generator including modulation and filtering. It also permits the comparison between the results of the PMU algorithm against those of an “ideal PMU” obtained by the parameters of the theoretical signal set. The platform has been functionally tested and used with a set of PMU algorithms. The platform is being used as a shared tool to quantify the uncertainties of the estimation algorithms developed in the framework of the European Metrological Research Project “Smart Grids.”
