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.
They 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.
Justin Smith 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. Justin also specializes in DER Protection including Anti-Islanding, Ride-Through Analysis, Inverter Modelling and Microgrids.
