Reliable protection, communication and control are the key features of a digital protection scheme in a utility
substation. Microgrid is an alternative solution of installing long Transmission & Distribution lines could be cost prohibitive. There are number of Intelligent Electronic
Devices (IEDs) which could find applications in controlling
and monitoring of power network in a Microgrid set up and
one such device is Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU). It is a
microprocessor based intelligent device which gathers highresolution data, checks the power quality and records
disturbances. However, few issues that remains to be
addressed such as, interoperability in a multi-vendor
equipment and coordination between individual control
systems in an integrated scheme. In this paper, an Operational Network Technology (OPNET) software model of a PMU has been designed and tested for its performance in a Microgrid environment based on IEC 61850-90-5 standard.
