This paper describes the WAMS architecture and its main components, and depicts some criteria for the location of the elements of WAMS. Subsequently, a description of the application (software) of WAMS available at Centro Nacional de Control de EnergíaCENACE, is carried out. A technical analysis of the information obtained from the installed WAMS, as well as a presentation of the first results of the implementation of WAMS in the SNI of Ecuador, are also deployed in this document. Finally, based on the analysis performed, major design elements and strategies for implementation of a generalized WAMS in the SNI of Ecuador are identified.
