SF Power and Energy Society Technical Presentation June 20th, 2018

            Title:  Improving safety/reliability during critical switching operations in substations                                                               Presenter:  Mr. Nan Liu - Principal Consultant, Youtech US ABSTRACT : Human errors when performing switching can have serious consequences as illustrated in the 2011 Southwest blackout. The blackout put grid reliability and public safety at great risk.  It cost millions in penalties to utilities involved and much more in terms of societal impacts. Similar errors have resulted in personnel injuries or even deaths.…

Ground Fault Mitigation by Using Resistance Grounding

June 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The presentation will cover Resistance grounding as a relatively simple and easy to apply method in radial distribution systems at Low Voltage and at high voltage up to 5 kV. When high resistance grounding is applied, a Neutral Grounding Resistor (NGR) is used at the supply transformer with an alarm system to detect and indicate the ground fault. This method has been in use for many years and is widely applied. In high voltage systems 15 kV to 36 kV…
