One of the missions of the North American SynchroPhasor Initiative (NASPI) is to create a robust, widely available and secure synchronized data measurement infrastructure, dubbed NASPInet that will improve reliability of the power grid. Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU), a GPS clock synchronized measurement device capable of measuring the current and voltage phasors in the power grid, is the main measurement device that NASPInet envisions to support. While the dataflow, latency and to some extent security requirements for individual PMU applications that depend on the measurement infrastructure have been characterized, this paper undertakes the challenge of characterizing the collective dataflow, latency and security requirements of the measurement infrastructure when using different network architectures and when multiple PMU applications simultaneously utilize NASPInet.
