Setting-less Protection (2014 Plan Part II): Field Demonstrations (T-56G)

Summary In the past few years, Georgia Tech and EPRI have been developing the setting-less protection technology. This technology has been demonstrated in the laboratory. The next steps are: (a) to demonstrate the technology in the field, and (b) to extend this technology towards the development of centralized substation protection systems. With respect to (a), this project will support the field demonstration of the setting-less protection to the NYPA system.
