ENGINEERING EXPERTISE IN POWER GENERATION

Are you NERC Compliant?

Every entity must register with NERC through their regional entity. Grids are becoming more complex. New technologies are expanding. As such, NERC is aggressively enforcing existing and introducing new requirements. They are also adjusting the frequency of compliance reporting. By federal law, NERC is authorized to monitor and assess company compliance status. They can also issue sanctions and/or fines for non-compliance.

Did you know all generation, transmission, and distribution owners—that are a part of the bulk electrical system—must comply with North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) reliability standards?

NERC Compliance Testing

NERC Compliance standards MOD-025-2, MOD-026-1 and MOD-027-1 provide an accurate representation of the steady state and dynamic response of generating units for power systems simulations. It’s a challenging task. And Wells Engineering will assist you through the whole process.

Validation is vital of a generating unit’s active and reactive capability, as well as excitation system and turbine/governor controls dynamic models. Vital to the operations, planning, security and reliability of power systems.

NERC Compliance Solutions for Protection and Control of GT&D Resources

The foundation of power system network reliability lies with the functionality of its protection and control schemes.

Proper protection and control schemes, in compliance with NERC PRC studies, provide the reactionary component—disconnecting the portion of the network under fault, while delivering during high load demands.

WEPSC Engineering Consulting Services: NERC PRC Studies

Wells Engineering is well-equipped to carry out system fault duty and coordination studies; and performance evaluations of under frequency, under voltage, special protection, and load shedding schemes. Our engineers provide services for the following NERC PRC requirements:

PRC-019-2. Coordination of Generating Unit or Plant Capabilities, Voltage Regulating Controls, and Protection.

PRC-023-4. Transmission Relay Loadability.

PRC-024-2. Generator Frequency and Voltage Protection Relay Settings.

PRC-025-2. Generator Relay Loadability.

PRC-026-1. Relay Performance During Stable Power Swings.

PRC-027-1. Coordination of Protection System Performance During Faults.
