Eliminating Errors

SARA Software

SynchroGrid’s SARA (Setting Automation Relay Assistant) streamlines the work of relay setting engineers by automating functions to avoid costly errors and time-consuming processes. Developed in-house to integrate with short-circuit models such as ASPEN OneLiner™, SARA uses a smart template to drastically reduce workloads while boosting productivity.

Transmission Line Relay Setting Development Module

SARA’s transmission line relay setting module allows engineers to develop a template to define their protection philosophy, creating a consistent standard for the utility to follow by:

  • Communicating bi-directionally with the short-circuit model to automate data collection and fault analysis
  • Eliminating copy and paste processes for more reliable results
  • Calculating the new relay settings and generating a relay database file
  • Producing reporting documentation that can be used for NERC compliance

Wide Area Coordination Module

SARA significantly simplifies wide area coordination studies, reducing workloads from several days to several hours, with a module that:

  • Verifies the short-circuit model data
  • Selects coordination criteria for the WAC study
  • Runs the coordination study, which creates a wide-area analysis of the system
  • Reviews the discovered violations displayed in the SARA dashboard
  • Resolves the violations within the SARA dashboard, which automatically resolves the issues in the short-circuit program
  • Generates a report automatically, which can be used for NERC compliance documentation
  • Updates the short-circuit program case automatically with the required changes
