Wide area measurement system relies on phasor measurement unit (PMU) data to monitor, protect, and control highvoltage transmission networks. However, errors in instrument transformers (ITs) located at the inputs of a PMU can significantly degrade its output quality. This study proposes two methodologies for voltage and current transformers calibration using PMU data. The first method calibrates ITs using one good quality voltage measurement located at a tie-line. This method tolerates errors in both the ITs (which are to be estimated) as well as the PMUs. The second method attains the same objective as the first one, with the additional constraint that some portion of the data is unusable. Thus, the second method can be used even when the incoming data is intermittent.
