  • Professor, Yonsei University


For the future smart grid, time-synchronized measurements such as synchrophasor and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) have been introduced into the existing power grid, which are featured by communication capabilities and higher measuring resolution contrary to the conventional measuring devices. These capabilities will enable us to monitor the grid in real-time manner for efficient and reliable operation of smart grid. In addition, these devices are considered as main sources to generate power system big data for intelligent smart energy services. This paper presents current status of time-synchronized measurements and their applications in big data. Moreover, applications and potentials in power system application are discussed when synchrophasor and AMI are time-synchronized across layers.


Yong-June Shin received his B.S. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, in 1996 with early completion honors and the M.S. degree from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1997. He received the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin, in 2004. Upon his graduation, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, The University of South Carolina as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011. He joined School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea as Associate Professor in 2012. He is a recipient of the United States National Science Foundation CAREER award in year 2008, and General Electric Korean-American Education Commission Scholarship. Dr. Shins current research interests are characterized by the application of novel digital signal processing techniques to a wide variety of important transient and nonlinear problems in smart electric power grid.
