Join Us for the Conference for Protective Relay Engineers at Texas A&M

Join Us for Our Pre-Conference Activity

On Monday, March 22nd, we will be offering a virtual seminar from 1:00-4:00pm in which we will provide an in-depth overview of the requirements for PRC-027-1 and will also evaluate available best practices for meeting these requirements most effectively. We will then provide practical steps for establishing a utility-wide standardized development process for protection and control drawings and relay settings, empowering utilities to maintain consistency, increase reliability, and reduce errors.

In addition, we will introduce an automation tool which streamlines these processes, simplifying standardization and compliance.

Watch Our Presentations

In addition to our class, we will be presenting two papers at the conference as well.

On Tuesday, March 23, at 10:25am, we will be presenting our paper, “Auto-tuned Solution to Wide Area Coordination Issues of Distance and Directional Time Overcurrent Relay Settings.” This paper discusses a generalized solution for automatic wide area coordination by incorporating our framework for distance protective elements, more contingencies in fault studies, and overcurrent curve parameter for DOCRs. In addition, the framework can now suggest alternatives to the engineer (e.g., a minor CTI adjustment for a relay) when complete coordination under all contingencies is not possible. Together, these new contributions enable it to perform a realistic wide area coordination of all the protective elements on real-world power systems.

On Thursday, March 25, at 9:15am, we will be presenting “Selecting, Implementing and Overcoming Challenges when Selecting a Coordination Criteria for Wide Area Applications.” This paper discusses methods for determining coordination criteria for a Wide Area Coordination study by taking different scenarios and system configurations into consideration. The paper also reviews various challenges that may arise when implementing the adopted coordination criteria and provides recommendations to overcome those challenges.
