GE Technical Seminar: Learn How to Setup an 8 Series Motor, Transformer and Feeder Relay
March 27th | 9:30AM – 3:00PM | Memorial Student Center 2406
The seminar will take a typical system one-line and translate that into recommended settings (protection and advanced monitoring) for an 869 motor protection relay, 845 transformer protection relay and 850 feeder protection relay. Participants will learn how to use 8 Series setup software, configure protection and monitoring elements and analysis various events using the 8 Series recording functionality. This is a no-charge seminar and lunch will be provided.
A Seminar Certificate with 4.5 training hours will be provided to those who register. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops with 8 Series Setup software version 4.01 installed to follow along.
To secure your spot, register here. Registration is limited, so sign up today.
Qualus Pre-Conference Seminar: Fundamentals of Line Protection
March 27th | 1:00PM – 5:00PM | Memorial Student Center 2405
Michael J. Wright, PE
SynchroGrid Educational Seminar
March 27th | 1:30PM – 3:30PM | Memorial Student Center 1400
In this class, SynchroGrid will present three main topics that will give engineers the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively develop transmission line settings.
In the first topic, SynchroGrid will explain three different line protection philosophies that range from simple to more complex. The user will be given step-by-step instructions on how to build these philosophies from scratch, build equations, set NERC compliance flags, security points, etc. Finally, the user will learn how to automate all three of these protection philosophies.
The second topic will teach the basics of scripting using ASPEN OneLiner’s Python Interface to assist with the development of relay settings. The user will be given step-by-step instructions on how to get started with creating automation scripts to create relay settings.
In the third part of this class, SynchroGrid will demonstrate how to set up relay links between ASPEN OneLiner, SEL RDB files, PowerBase, or ASPEN RDB in order to automate relay setting retrieval. This is a crucial step in order for relay setting engineers to keep the ASPEN OneLiner model up to date to easily perform relay setting calculations and overall coordination.
