This study presents a new wide-area voltage stability monitoring method using synchronised phasor measurements. The salient features of the proposed index are the following: (i) It ensures constancy, which is the ability to maintain the same scale even if the system changes. (ii) It is pseudo-linear with respect to the power system stability level, which enhances intuitiveness for real-time operation. Accordingly, stability can be uniformly compared in various situations, and thus, the index can be used as a solid criterion or threshold point for system operation. A verification study of the proposed index with regard to constancy is carried out using Korean power system operation data. Furthermore, an implementation of the proposed method for the Korean wide-area monitoring system is presented, and it is demonstrated that the proposed index detects event more clearly than previous stability index through an actual event measured using phasor measurement units.
