  • System Control Centers and Telecommunications

    Telecommunications equipment is used to communicate information electronically between the electric system control centers (ESCC) and the several remote terminal units (RTUs). This chapter discusses the equipment used in ESCCs, RTUs, and telecommunications. The basic operation of virtually every electric utility in the United States now relies upon supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. SCADA systems have the capability of providing graphical representation of the generation stations, transmission lines, substations, and distribution lines. Energy management systems (EMS) became a major extension from SCADA with the arrival of advanced computer programs and applications. Wide Area Monitoring Systems (WAMS) is a relatively new approach to help maintain and assure system reliability using remote phasor measuring units (PMU) sensors, telecommunications, and phasor data concentrators (PDCs) in centralized monitoring centers. Synchrophasors or PMUs compare voltage and/or current waveforms across the grid. The modernization of the electric power grid, from generation through consumption, is undergoing substantial change.

  • Application of Risk Evaluation to Selecting Substation Configurations

    Substations and switching stations are critical segments in power systems. The fundamental principles in selection of substation configurations are reliability, economy, and flexibility in design and operation. This chapter describes a method to perform the risk assessment for a combinative system consisting of transmission network and substation configurations. The load curtailment model for a combinative system of transmission network and substation configuration is illustrated. The chapter summarizes the risk evaluation approach and the economic analysis concept. Three examples are given in the chapter. The first one is an application of the approach to selecting substation configuration. The second one is the evaluation of effects of substation configuration changes on the risks of both source and load points. The third one provides an application of the presented method to the determination of a transmission line arrangement supplying two substations.

  • Power System Scenario Analysis

    While monitoring the prevailing operating conditions, an operator is constantly presented with situations in which he needs to make a decision on his next move. As part of the system operating order or process book, utilities document closely what the operational limits and thresholds are for their major substations, transmission lines, and transformers. They also document broadly the type of mitigating actions operators need to take to return the system to within these operating limits so as to remove problems such as voltage and power flow violations. The decision support system required for power system control includes the infrastructure to perform switching actions and a tool for scenario analysis. Different assumptions and specifications regarding the controls in a power flow can be used to represent different scenarios of the system. These scenarios include prefault and postfault system conditions.

  • System Protection

    There are two types of "protection" referred to in electric power systems. The first is system protection having to do with protective relays, fault currents, effective grounding, circuit breakers, fuses, etc. The second is personal protection having to do with rubber gloves, insulating blankets, grounding jumpers, switching platforms, tagging, etc. This chapter discusses the first one "system protection". System protection protects power system equipment from damage due to power faults and/or lightning strikes. Distribution lines are normally fed radially out of substations, meaning distribution feeders have only one utility source. Transmission protection is much different than distribution protection simply because transmission is usually not radially fed. Normally transmission systems have multiple feeds to a substation and transmission lines must have special protective relaying schemes to identify the actual faulted transmission line. The purpose of a synchronizing relay is to safely connect two 3???phase lines together or to place a spinning generator online.

  • Calculation of Power System Overvoltages

    This chapter presents a short description of the main causes and methods for limitation of overvoltages. It discusses the analysis and calculation of typical overvoltages. The chapter provides the modelling guidelines to be used with any class of overvoltage, a description of the phenomena that cause overvoltages and some illustrative cases. Standards distinguish several classes and shapes of overvoltages: temporary overvoltages (TOV), slow-front overvoltages, fast-front overvoltages and very-fast-front overvoltages. The chapter outlines the analysis and simulation of the most frequent causes of TOVs in power systems. Switching transients in power systems are caused by the operation of breakers and switches. The switching operations can be classified into two categories: energization and de-energization. Lightning strokes are one of the primary causes of fast-front transients in power systems. Very fast transients (VFT) in gas insulated substations (GISs) can arise any time there is an instantaneous change in voltage.
