Swat short circuit study group update

SWAT Short Circuit Study Group Update

May 10, 2006

Albuquerque, New Mexico


Short circuit system reliability

Short Circuit – System Reliability

  • Relay Misoperations – Fail to Operate or Operate When They Shouldn’t

  • Equipment Damage due to Failure to Operate Relays

  • Circuit Breakers and Other Equipment Failure because not Properly Rated

Impedance maps work

Impedance Maps Work

  • Most Impedance Maps Are Out of Date

  • List of Items to be Placed On Maps Developed

  • A Single Set of Impedance Maps to be Generated

  • Requested SWAT to Develop WestConnect Funding of Impedance Map Generation

  • Only 2 WestConnect Members not Members of SWAT SCWG

Dpv2 scwg findings

DPV2 SCWG Findings

  • 442 of 1481 buses with 10 A or higher difference

  • Some Transformers not Modeled as Transformers in the DPV2 SCWG PSS/E case

  • Type 2 Buses in PSS/E Do Not Stay Constant


Dpv2 pss e converted aspen worst differences

DPV2 PSS/E Converted Aspen Worst Differences


Combined case

Combined Case

  • Plan Developed

  • Conversions Currently being Checked

  • Zones for Members being Developed

  • Equivalents to be Checked

  • Cases to be Combined


Future work

Future Work

  • Combine CCPG SCWG Case

  • Combine STEP SCWG Case (if developed)

  • Develop Common Methodologies

  • Review of Standards

  • Start on next Annual Case and Impedance Maps Update (refinements)


Future refinements

Future Refinements

  • Add Mutual Coupling

  • Add Line Charging Capacitance

  • Add Motors

  • Check Transformer, Line, Shunt, Generator, and Load Data


Refinement example line charging capacitance

Refinement Example: Line Charging Capacitance


Potential load flow help

Potential Load Flow Help

  • Impedance Maps for Load Flow Operating Case

  • Possible WECC Evolution of Regional SCWGs

  • If WECC Bus Numbers Used Later, Import of More Accurate SC Case Data into Load Flow Cases
