  • Customer needed a system to replace an unreliable legacy solution
  • Customer was concerned about losing critical loads in possible outages
  • Customer wanted to optimize their electrical power management 

Solution"Intelligent Fast Load Shedding" & "Power System Monitoring"

  • Co-Generators were modeled with their dynamic parameters including exciter/governor
  • Multiple scenarios were created to study the stability of the system
  • Stability limits of the generators w/o the utility were studies
  • Customer's power system network was utilized with the "Intelligent Fast Load Shedding" solution (ILS)
  • Smart predictive analysis solution of ILS helped customer to preserve critical loadings, shedding the best possible load shedding priority in just fractions of a second
  • The system is fully redundant and cost effective for the customer
