Improved Protection Testing with Typhoon HILNovember 19, 2021
In this webinar, Justin Smith – a Power Systems Protection and Control expert – will join the Typhoon HIL team to discuss the difficulties related to protection testing on today’s increasingly complex grids with high penetration of power electronics based distributed generation. Justin is the owner of the consulting firm Power System Analytics located in Roxboro NC. A former NC State Alum, Justin has a BSEE and MSEE with a specialization in Power System Protection & Control. He also specializes in DER Protection including Anti-Islanding, Ride-Through Analysis, Inverter Modelling and Microgrids.
The webinar speakers will go over use cases on how to verify and validate protection relay settings and coordination and on how test the entire protection layer against different fault scenarios for both utility tied and islanded operation of microgrids. The fault scenarios covered are multiple short circuit types, phase losses, voltage and frequency ride throughs, anti-islanding as well as component failures.
Furthermore, the presentation will cover how to connect the physical protection relays to your Hardware-In-the-Loop real-time replica of the microgrid on both the signal and communication protocol levels.
Attendees will learn about:
- Protection Difficulty
- Detailed Case Studies on:
- Internal Fault with Ground Bank Closed while Utility Tied
- External Fault with Ground Bank Closed while Utility Tied
- Internal Fault with Ground Bank Closed while Islanded
- External Fault with Ground Bank Closed while Islanded
