Investigation of PMU Response to Leap Second: 2015
Allen R. Goldstein, Dhananjay Anand, YaShian Li-Baboud
Between 22:30:00 June 30, 2015, and 00:30:00 July 2, 2015, UTC, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) tested eight Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) to investigate their response to the leap second adjustment to UTC which occurred following 23:59:59 UTC on June 30, 2015. At this time, the offset between TAI and UTC time incremented by 1 second from 35 seconds to 36 seconds. None of the PMUs responded to the leap second in accordance with IEEE standard. This NISTIR documents the actual responses of the 8 PMUs investigated.
