Revisited Modelling Concept for Switches
Addressing operational and protection aspects as well as the interfacing capabilities to the network models in geographical information systems (GIS) and SCADA systems increases the (required) modelling depth of planning models. PSS SINCAL therefore adopts a more detailed modelling paradigm for switches (of different kinds) to support the model conversion, equipment identification and CIM conformity. This supports a use case adequate network modelling ranging from simplified bus-branch to complex bus-switch-branch (“node-breaker”) representation of the power system.
Extended Result View
The results view serves as a central location for the result presentation and analysis. Extended functions for interactive highlighting of the results in the network graphic and table are now directly accessible. The revisited design in terms of result selection and a more streamlined result presentation provides a focused overview. A new filter option for the results and direct access to the color customization complete the revisited specific result views of the modules.
Import, Extend and Update Models from Excel-Data
During the creation process of a network model usually not all required information is sourced from the same system or are available yet but needs stepwise extension (e.g., adding DER or protection system data). During the lifecycle of a network model the extension as well as the update of specific data (e.g., measurement data, load data, protection settings) keeps the model up to date. Besides automatic and integrated interface solutions PSS SINCAL offers the completely configurable adaptor in the user interface for Excel-Data with extended functionalities to import, extend and update network models with different identification modes for the network elements based on name, topology or IDs.
Improved Distance Protection Modelling
Thus, there is now a device-specific description of the tripping areas and the impedance pickup for each device. Furthermore, depending on the selected tripping characteristic, only the parameters required for this tripping characteristic are displayed.
The impedance pickup has been extended so that the appropriate impedance pickup is now available for all devices modeled in PSS SINCAL.
