The Protection Subcommittee held its Spring meeting at the RF offices on April 4-5, 2018. They reviewed misoperation metrics for 2017 and the latest enhancements to and reporting procedures for the Misoperation Information Data Analysis System (MIDAS). The group discussed when to report misoperations and operations under different scenarios.
In addition to excellent entity participation, we were pleased to have NERC in attendance to provide an overview of the analysis performed by the Inverter-Based Resource Performance Task Force, which was formed in response to loss of generation events in the Western Interconnection in 2017.
Future discussions will delve into the 2019 short circuit coordination effort, and the group’s next meetings will be a conference call on July 11, 2018 and a meeting on October 10-11, 2018 at the RF offices in Cleveland. The fall meeting will include a training session with SEL University on pilot protection.
