This paper presents a medium-voltage intelligent measurement platform that provides post-processing of raw measurements received from commercially-available voltage/current sensors to enhance accuracy and bandwidth of the monitoring system. Furthermore, this platform integrates into a Data Distribution Service (DDS) messaging bus for distributed control and interoperability. The authors present the design, specifications, and major components included in the platform, and argue for applications and use cases that most benefit from this new approach. A laboratory testbed has been created to demonstrate the functionality, for which test results are presented for selected test cases.
