The Grid Automation System is based on the CompactRIO embedded control and acquisition system. Designed for phasor measurements, power analyzer and substation automation, the processing unit runs a deterministic version of Linux Real-Time with a fully programmable software application layer that helps blend custom requirements with commercial off-the-shelf hardware. Open PMU technology resources are valuable to companies that need to develop a platform quickly, while still retaining freedom in both hardware and software design and specifications.
