PES Webinar - Centralized Protection and Control (CPC) within a Substation
IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series
Centralized Protection and Control (CPC) within a Substation
14 June 2017 • 11:00 am Eastern
Presented by Ratan Das, Founder icaPower LLC
The power system dynamic characteristics are changing due to integration of distributed (mostly renewable) energy sources into the electric grid. Utilities are also focusing on improving customer service and resiliency of the grid by using advanced monitoring and control technologies. These industry initiatives require a renewed attention to protection, automation and control strategies that take advantage of available technologies while promoting newer ones. To explore improved utilization of present technologies and chart the development of the next generation Protection and Control (P&C) technologies, the IEEE Power System Relaying Committee formed a working group K15 to prepare a report on state-of-the-art and emerging technologies for centralized protection and control (CPC) within a substation. This presentation is based on the findings of the WG report.
Dr. Ratan Das is the founder of icaPower LLC, which serves customers in power system protection, automation and control. He was the chair of the IEEE PSRC WG K15 on Centralized Substation Protection and Control. He was a guest-editor of the special section on “Frontiers of Power System Protection” in The IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery August 2016 Issue. The special section also contains the IEEE PSRC WG K15 paper on CPC which received the 2016 IEEE PES Technical Committee Prize Paper award.
Dr. Das received his B.E.E. (Hons.) degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. He has worked in power system protection, automation and control for 30 years: with ABB Inc., USA, for 18 years and with NTPC Ltd., India, for 11 years. Dr. Das holds four patents and has contributed to over 30 publications.
