Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS): Improved protection system performance through grid-specific setting of protection devices
Disconnections due to wrong protection setting values can lead to significant and unnecessary expenses for operators. Our consultants support grid operators in determining the right settings for the installed protection devices in a hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulation environment. In addition, customers expand their capabilities to operate the devices and analyze disturbances and protection responses.
Ensuring reliable power supply under all circumstancesThe challenge for Transmission System Operators (TSOs) is to ensure safe and reliable power supply for their customers − not only in normal steady-state operation, but also under fault conditions, and despite the increasing complexity the systems are facing today.
