Upcoming Webinars

Electric Power Group (EPG) is pleased to announce a Webinar Series on Maximizing Use of Synchrophasor Technology for Everyday Tasks. The webinar series is based on feedback from EPG Applications Users Group and Industry Stakeholders, and is designed to address needs that are common to operators and engineers. The webinars will outline the problems faced frequently by users and cover step-by-step approach to address the problem. Webinars are planned monthly, on the second Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to 12 Noon Pacific Time. Webinar topics, timing and frequency may be adjusted based on participant feedback and needs.

The initial list of topics based on the most frequent questions and needs collected from customers and stakeholders includes the following:

10.16.2014 Mining Phasor Data To Find The Hidden Gems In Your Archive
This webinar showcases how PDMA features and functionalities can be used to mine the data, interpret and present the results and use the results in establishing alarm limits, discovering oscillations, understanding grid performance patterns such as frequency response, and identifying vulnerabilities in the transmission grid.
03.04.2014 Model Validation using Synchrophasor Data
This webinar focused on model validation using synchrophasor data. Power Systems are operated based on models. Inaccurate models may lead to mistakes in real-time operations. The webinar addressed the definition of model, types of power system models and explain why the models are used as well as what makes model validation important. The webinar elaborates on how to validate models using synchrophasor data and illustrate with various examples.
01.28.2014 Synchrophasor Data Diagnostics:Detection & Resolution of Data Problems for Operations and Analysis
The webinar covered application of basic data validation with the IEEE C37.118 data quality flags; and, how more advanced validation techniques can detect more complex errors and in some cases improve or replace the original reported value. This webinar provides the participant with an understanding of data issues, the steps to their resolution, and allow them to use synchrophasor data with greater confidence.
11.19.2013 Phasor Simulations - How Can They Be Used in Operations?
The webinar shows how simulations can be used to develop “what if” scenarios that enable operators to understand grid behavior through simulations to better equip operators to respond to events in real-time.
10.08.2013 Establishing Alarm Limits and Using Them in Real-Time Operations
This webinar focused on how alarm limits can be established and how operators can utilize them to carry out their primary mission of reliable operations by making use of synchrophasor technology attributes – wide-area view, high-resolution data, grid dynamics and real-time monitoring. The webinar reviewed the need for alarms, types and levels of alarms, how alarm levels can be established for use in operations, and actions operators need to take in response to alarms.
09.17.2013 Phase Angle Differences What They Mean and How to Use Them For Operations
This webinar focused on providing an in-depth understanding of Phase Angle Differences and how operators can use the measurements to diagnose and take appropriate action for reliable grid operations. Increase in phase angle difference between source and sink in a grid is an indicator of stress that is often not evident by monitoring power flows. Monitoring phase angle difference between Ohio and New York in 2003 and between Oregon and California in 1996 would have alerted operators to emerging problems well before the cascading blackout.
08.20.2013 Using Synchrophasor Technology For Real-Time Operation and Reliability Management
The webinar focused on how operators can make use of synchrophasor technology attributes - wide area real-time situational awareness, high resolution and grid dynamics to get early warning of deteriorating grid conditions, diagnose and assess current system situation, and take timely corrective actions. The webinar will review root causes of some major power system blackouts from 1996 to 2012, and how use of synchrophasor technology could have prevented or mitigated the blackouts. Use cases of Western and Eastern Interconnections will be presented to illustrate specific operations under various system conditions using real-time measurements of phase angles, damping and growing oscillation, and sensitivities.
07.16.2013 System Events: Deciphering the Heartbeat of the Power Grid series
