CIGRE Symposium Tutorial on the Uses of Substation Data

Dr. Kezunovic and Dr. Popovic gave a tutorial titled Multiple uses of substation IED data for future grid applications at CIGRE Symposium held in Houston, Oct 19-23.

ABSTRACT EXCERPT: “This tutorial provides introduction to modern substation IEDs and covers detailed characteristics of IED data and data collection. The tutorial will discuss the requirements for automated data integration, which is needed as a foundation for future grid applications. The use of integrated substation data will be illustrated with an example of automated data analytics for fault and disturbance event analysis. The discussion will cover the process from the communication of raw substation data, to conversion of data into information, then information to knowledge that can be used to support decision making process. The tutorial will close with business value considerations, important role of standards, and open discussion.”
