SynchroGrid recently completed a Wide Area Coordination (WAC) project for Rayburn Country Electric Cooperative, ensuring that their system was well-coordinated and prepared to meet Requirement 2 of PRC-027-1. Due to our unique combination of system protection and software development expertise, we are able to provide both innovative and automated solutions for both requirements 1 and 2 of PRC-027-1.
By combining automated processes with conventional consulting techniques, we are able to streamline WAC studies. Our rigorous scans uncover high risk areas for blackouts, mis-coordinated relays, relays that operate out of order or out of zone, incorrect relay settings and more. The combination of conventional and automated techniques allows us to be highly efficient, while still having multiple levels of review to ensure quality. We perform an in-depth analysis on the entire system, ensuring reliable protection operation and helping to prevent mis-operations and cascading blackouts.
A summary of our Wide Area Coordination process is as follows:
After this project was completed, Rayburn’s system was well-coordinated system and will meet the PRC-027-1 R2 requirements for the next six years. In addition, they now have a thorough set of reporting documentation.
