RTE DSE-Protection Demonstration: (T-59G)

Summary Georgia Tech and EPRI have been developing the Dynamic State Estimation based protection method (a.k.a. setting-less protection). This technology has been demonstrated in the laboratory and also a demonstration project with NYPA under NYSERDA sponsorship is in progress. The objective of the proposed project is to demonstrate the technology on the digital substation that RTE is developing. A DSE based relay will be developed for the protection of RTE’s digital substation, factory tested at the Georgia Tech laboratory and it will be installed on RTE’s digital substation.
