Topics

  • OneLiner user interface.
  • Network modeling: Generators, transmission lines, transformers, MOV-protected series capacitors, zero sequence mutuals, generator models for wind turbines, PV and non-traditional generation sources.
  • Short circuit calculations: starting voltage assumptions, outaged and grounded lines, circulating current in wye-wye-delta transformer, phasor probe, simultaneous faults, batch fault simulation.
  • Overcurrent, distance relay protections and logic scheme modeling.
  • Plotting overcurrent relay curves, and conductor- and transformer-damage and inrush curves.
  • Plotting distance relay characteristics.
  • Plotting protective-device characteristics on time-distance diagram.
  • Importing relay data from SEL 5010, 5030 and other manufacturers' relay data files.
  • System-wide relay coordination studies, automatic coordination checking functions.
  • Tools for compliance with PRC-023-3, PRC-025-1, PRC-026 and PRC-027.
  • Special applications: breaker rating module, acr-flash hazard calculator, stepped event simulation, fault location, export relay test file, boundary equivalent, ground current calculator.
  • Network-model and relay-data management.
  • Program installation: network keys, file sharing, work group setup.
