Phasor Measurement Units and Wide Area Monitoring Systems presents complete coverage of phasor measurement units (PMUs), bringing together a rigorous academic approach and practical considerations on the implementation of PMUs to the power system. In addition, it includes a complete theory and practice of PMU technology development and implementation in power systems.
- Presents complete coverage of the topic from the measurement to the system, bringing together a rigorous academic approach and practical considerations on the implementation of PMUs to the power system
- Includes a complete proposal of implementation for a PMU platform that could be replicated in every laboratory
- Covers PMU software compiled for National Instrument HW, a compiled monitoring platform to be used to monitor PMU data and developed custom solutions, and a compiled National Instrument schematic to be executed within a SmartPhone app

During his time at the University of South Carolina before joining RWTH, Professor Monti was Associate Director of the Virtual Test Bed (VTB) project, which focusesd on computational simulation and visualisation of modern power distribution systems. His 4 main areas of research are Simulation of Complex Systems with focus on Real Time and Hardware in the Loop, Distributed Intelligence for Grid Automation, Advanced Monitoring Solution for Distribution Grids and Development of solution for Smart Home/Smart Cities applications
Received the M.S. degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering in 1994 at the University of Cagliari, Italy, where he was Assistant Professor from 1996 to 2001. Since 2001 he has been Associate Professor of Electrical and Electronic Measurement at the University of Cagliari. He is currently the chairman of the council for the Electrical Engineering degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc.). His research activity is in the field of the electrical and electronic measurements, with special attention to the study of power quality phenomena and to the implementation of distributed measurement systems for modern electric grids, along with the metrological qualification of the measurement processes involved. He is author or co-author of more than ninety scientific papers, mainly published in international journals and in proceedings of international conferences. He is also a member of IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society and of AEI.
Graduated from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) with a Master Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1998 and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2002. She was a visiting scholar for two years and then Faculty member, from 2003, at the level of Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Carolina (USA), where she was tenured and promoted at the level of Associate Professor at the end of 2008. At the beginning of 2009, while on leave from the University of South Carolina, she joined the Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems at the E.ON Energy Research Center at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) where she currently holds a position of Chief Engineer and Lecturer.
