As Iraq incorporates the PMUs
-- and there are more than 40 of them -- into its armed forces, Iran is bolstering their independence.
These measurements are time stamped with signals from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, which enable PMU
data to be time-synchronized and combined to create a comprehensive view of the broader electrical system.
measure the transferred voltage(s) and all the significant line streams.
Some have opted to join local PMUs
close to Iran in response, which helped them significantly in getting their towns back from Daesh, despite being in a province known as part of the Sunni heartland.
A report from the Middle East Institute estimates that 40 of about 67 militias under the umbrella group, PMU
, are "believed to share close links with Iran's Quds Force, the largest being Badr Organization, Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, and Kata'ib Hezbollah."
In recent years, special attention has been given to P-class PMUs
[26-30], as protection applications have become more important because of both the possible sources that can lead to failures have increased and their consequences can be more severe.
In MATLAB, two sets of simulated PMUs
are placed at both terminals of the selected DL to measure the voltages and currents waveforms simultaneously.
But the Kurds could be disappointed: many observers believe that the Trump strategy on Iran is long on rhetoric, but woefully short on operational capacity; with the US reluctant to expand its military footprint in the quagmire of Middle Eastern politics, Iran, with its regional allies, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, and the support of battle-hardened militia, Hezbollah and the PMUs
, sees itself quite well-placed to hold its own in the region.

On the other hand, other applications, like recloser systems, Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs
), and synchrophasors, can accept latencies between 20 ms and 100 ms.
