WIDE AREA MONITORING, PROTECTION, AND CONTROL OF MODERN POWER SYSTEMS (WAMPAC)

23 - 25 NOVEMBER 2020, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

This 3-day course is based on the international experience, in particularly National Grid in UK, which plays a major role in the development of secure, high-speed, time-synchronized data about bulk power system conditions.

 

SynchroPhasors are electrical grid measurements of values of voltage and power provided by monitors called phasor measurement units (PMUs). These measurements offer a detailed and consistent operational “image” of the entire interconnected system.

 

This course will introduce the infrastructure development, including phasor measurement units (PMU), data concentrators to synchronize and archive the data, secure communications systems to deliver the data, and analytical tools to process and interpret the synchrophasor data and its implications.

Learning Outcomes

The participants in this course will gain insights into the measurements requirement for both power system operations and power system planning. Participants will expand the knowledge of:

 

  • Wide-area monitoring, protection, automation and control (WAMPAC)
  • Communication networks protocols and related standards
  • Real-time monitoring and control, system and market operation (congestion, market trading), and restoration applications
  • SMT based real-time state estimation
  • SMT real-time protection and control applications (advanced protection, relaying settings, full real-time control, close loop systems)
  • System design of WAMPAC systems
  • Implementing WAMPAC system, experience from tests and installations
  • System reliability and financial benefits of SMT and WAMPAC

Who Should Attend

  • Design engineers and planner
  • Control and protection electrical engineers and technicians
  • Operation engineers

Expert Course Faculty

In his 30 years working experience he provided highest quality services in system planning and analysis to major transmission and distribution and transportation companies including London Underground, National Grid Company (UK), MTRC Metro in Hong Kong, West Coast Main Line connection to NG, Scottish Power, ESB-Ireland, ESKOM-South Africa, Mauritius CEB, Balkan countries – grids of Romania and former Yugoslavia, HV network ISA-Colombia, Western Power Distribution-UK, etc.

 

His technical expertise includes most aspects of power systems analysis, electrical asset management and railway connections to power networks where he provides solutions to technical problems and supports other field’s experts in complex assignments. He has project management skills in technical and environmental projects as well as experience in short and long-strategic term planning, maintenance and asset management, power quality analysis of transmission and generation systems, distribution, transportation and other power networks. Experienced in generation and network integration, electrical component of energy master plans as well as strategic asset replacement, he was also involved in load- forecast analysis and generation dispatching. Published papers on asset management based on projects and experience in working for distribution companies in Africa and Europe.

 

Our expert is very experienced in design, procurement, commissioning, erection and refurbishment of major projects in transmission and distribution substations up to 420 kV and hydro and thermal power plants. Served as project manager on several major projects as well as head of the Engineering Group, he was responsible for final design, equipment specifications, layouts tender evaluation and commissioning. He has carried out conceptual development of protection and control philosophy for various projects as well as reviewed and approved project drawings and documents.  He has applied the latest IEC standards, various codes of practice and engineering recommendations.  He has also specific experience in conceptual design of power supply for transportation and traction railway systems, defining the design principles and technical specifications for future design and privatisation process.   He has analysed quality of power supply for connection of AC and DC unbalanced load to power network and published papers on practical implementation. He carried out feasibility studies on reactive compensation (SVC and MSC) focusing on voltage variation and harmonic distortion issues.

 

He has performed technical and economic evaluations, cost benefit net present value analysis, of various transmission and distribution schemes and electrical equipment. He carried out a number of asset evaluation analysis on electrical equipment and published papers on asset management, reliability and maintenance. He has performed equipment assessment and residual life prediction as part of strategic asset management analysis for a major underground transportation company in Asia. His duties have also included equipment arrangement optimisation in particular reliability aspect in terms of failure rate and financial consequences as non-supplied energy to the consumers.
