WGNameChairVice ChairScope
BAdvisoryPratap MysoreRuss PattersonAssist the Chair of the PSRC on all matters that he may request in the functioning, direction, and conduct of the work of the Main Committee. (Main Committee Officers, Subcommittee Chairs and past PSRC Chairs).
CSystem ProtectionGene HennebergFred FriendEvaluate protection systems responses to abnormal power system states. Evaluate and report on special protection schemes, remedial actions schemes, monitoring and control systems and their performance during abnormal power system conditions. Recommend corrective strategies and develop appropriate standards, guides, or special publications. Evaluate and report on new technologies which may have a bearing on protection system performance during abnormal power system conditions.
DLine ProtectionKarl ZimmermanBruce MackieInvestigate and report on the relaying techniques and systems used for transmission and distribution (T&D) line protection. Develop statistics and recommend protection practices for improving line relaying performance. Develop and maintain standards for line protection.
HRelaying CommunicationsGalina AntonovaAaron MartinEvaluate and report on the characteristics and performance of protective relaying communications and control systems. Recommend communication requirements, operating and test procedures which assure reliable performance of the overall protection and control system. Report on new relaying equipment designs tailored to specific communication requirements. Included are matters necessary to the function of such systems employed in the generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy, and their effects on system operation. Control systems include data acquisition and processing from devices such as transducers, Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), and Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) including the low-level interfaces to these systems. Power System control issues associated with Power System Dynamics are excluded from this scope.
IRelaying PracticesBrian MugalianAndre UribeDevelop, recommend and establish standards on protective relaying practices which are compatible with the electrical environment, including but, not limited to; relay withstand capabilities to electromagnetic interference, characteristics and performance of instrument transformers, testing procedures, applications, performance criteria, and definitions of relays and relay systems. Evaluate and report on pertinent aspects of protective relaying not addressed by other PSRC Subcommittees. Maintain applicable protective relaying standards.
JRotating Machinery ProtectionDale FinneyGary KobetEvaluate and report on protective relaying concepts and practices applicable to generators, motors, synchronous condensers, associated auxiliary systems, and performance of plant protective systems. Develop and maintain related relaying standards.
KSubstation ProtectionDon LukachBruce PickettEvaluate and report on methods used in protective relaying of substations and the consumer or independent power producer, associated equipment and performance of these protective systems. Develop and maintain relaying standards which relate to this equipment and the utility-consumer interface.
