We enjoyed participating in the Texas A&M Conference for Protection Relay Engineers this year! Even though the conference was virtual, we were still able to connect with other engineers, share ideas, and discuss our innovative services. Check out our conference highlights below.
On the first day of the conference, we hosted a virtual seminar on methods for standardizing and automating the development of protection and control drawings and relay settings. We discussed the importance and benefits of maintaining a utility-wide standard for these processes in order to reduce errors, maintain consistency, and increase reliability, and we also introduced our automation tool, SARA, which helps to streamline these processes.
We also discussed NERC PRC-027-1, one of the most recent NERC standards, which requires utilities to have an established process for relay setting development by April of 2021. We outlined the details for complying with this standard as well as strategies and examples for achieving compliance.

In addition to our class, we presented two papers during the conference as well:
SynchroGrid Sponsor Hour
SynchroGrid also hosted a sponsor hour in our networking lounge midway through the conference. We were excited to have so many attendees join, and we enjoyed providing a demonstration of our relay setting automation software tool, SARA.
