Phasor Data Concentrator (PDC)

Receives and time-synchronizes phasor data from multiple phasor measurement units (PMUs) to produce a real-time, time-aligned output data stream. A PDC can exchange phasor data with PDCs at other locations. Through use of multiple PDCs, multiple layers of concentration can be implemented within an individual synchrophasor data system.[1]
