Short Circuits Analysis

  • Fault levels for symmetrical and asymmetrical faults.
  • ANSI/IEEE standards
  • IEC standards including 363 & 909
  • All types of symmetrical and asymmetrical faults with and without impedance

Transient Stability Study

  • Various types of fault at user defined location
  • Detailed representation of excitation systems, turbines governors static var compensators, power system stabilizers and HVDC controllers
  • Load Shedding
  • Simulation of operation of voltage / current / frequency relays and distance relays

Relay Co-ordination

Gives new relay settings for improved performance and computer zone settings for distance relays. Relay co-ordination can be conducted for relays of all make and with user defined characteristics for overcurrent and distance relays. Simulation option available.

Voltage Instability Analysis

Designed to assess the risk of Voltage instability and margin of stability during sudden disturbances, under steady state conditions. It ranks the load busses based on the L-index value and the highest L-index indicates the system collapse point. The value of L-index is zero at no load and 1 at the verge of collapsing point.

Harmonic Analysis

Performs three-phase harmonic load flow to compute harmonic distortion factors. Calculates harmonic transfer and driving point impedances for both transmission and distribution power systems.

Dynamic Stability Analysis

Performs the dynamic stability analysis in both frequency domain(Eigen value analysis) and time domain.

Network Reduction

Provides the static and dynamic equivalents for the power system. In case of Static equivalent, program determines the bus admittance matrix (Y ) as seen from the desired nodes by bus eliminating the rest of the nodes. In case of dynamic equivalent, a single machine equivalent circuit is determined.

Sub-Synchronous Resonance

Frequency response method is used for analyzing the stability of sub-sysynchronous resonance, as modelled by a number of synchronous machines and an extensive series compensated transmission network. The method allows the simultaneous detailed modelling of all machine shafts and control loops and hence permits investigation of possible interaction in the subsynchronous resonance frequency band between machines in different plants.

Electro Magnetic Transient Analysis

Performs both transient and dynamic over voltage studies. The highest discharge currents and enrgy stresses for the protective equipment and to co-ordinated them with withstand levels of the protected equipment is determined. Over voltages, which are caused due to energization of lines, transformers and shunt elements, during fault inceptions and on clearing of faults are calculated.

Line and Cable Parameter Calculation

Program calculates positive and zero sequence parameters of the overhead lines and cables used in single and multi-phase configurations over a wide range of user defined frequencies and temperatures. It also calculates the mutual impedance between power and communication lines.

Long Term Load Forecast

Long Term Load Forecast module is designed for forecasting the energy demand during the planning stages of a power system. The salient features of this tool are

  • Generality to apply for any type of load data
  • Can accommodate any number of independent variable,which are very significant.
  • The method adopts multivariate regression techniques forforecasting
  • Capability to select the best model out of various models
