Texas A&M Conference for Protective Relay Engineers

March 23, 2021 @ 10:50 am - 11:25 pm

Texas A&M Conference for Protective Relay Engineers

Two Quanta Presented Papers:

  1. “Application and Integration of Automation-Based Tools for Efficient and Accurate Modeling of Transmission System Protection” Daixi Li, Tim Chang, Saman Alaeddini, Guanhua Wen, Xinyang Dong, Quanta Technology“Utilities are increasingly looking towards simulation-based protection evaluation capabilities within short-circuit software to assist their engineers in meeting the requirements of emerging compliance standards and performance metrics. Automated protection modeling can be a solution to the complexities of creating and maintaining accurate protection representation on these software platforms.This presentation discusses the practical challenges and considerations associated with the implementation and utilization of these automated protection modeling methodologies, including aspects of data preparation, day-to-day operation, and long-term governance. The real-world experiences presented in this session draw from four utilities across the United States, each with different practices, conventions, and preferences.”
  2. “Process Improvement of Distribution Protective Relays Coordination” Mehrdad Chapariha, Mohamed Maria, Saman Alaeddini, Quanta Technology


Presentation Title

Process Improvement of Distribution Protective Relays Coordination (March 25)


This paper discusses the improvement of protection settings reviews performed by protection engineers in utilities regularly. It highlights common process inefficiencies, shows the improved deployment of data sources and proper use of software tools, and demonstrates filling gaps with automated routines. The rapid expansion of renewable energy resources and evolving regulatory requirements have increased the demand for these studies and necessitated a quicker turn-around time. The paper presents three practical examples implemented in a real power network. The solution presented in this paper results in considerable time savings and forms one of the major building blocks for adaptive protective schemes in the future.
