The potential uses of the sub-second GPS- synchronized phasor data collected from various locations within an electric power system prom- ise endless benefits for the applications targeting reliable operation of electric power systems. Despite the undisputable progress achieved in developing visualization tools, alarming tools, modal analysis tools, and statistical analysis tools based on synchrophasor data, there is an emerging need to develop more real-time phasor-based applications. This paper discusses an initial idea of the characteristic ellipsoid ap- proach to monitor the dynamic behavior of an interconnected power system using phasor measurements. This method can be a useful tool for providing wide-area situational awareness for grid operators, identification of system dis- turbances and detection of system stresses and their locations. 1
