NERC Compliance Services
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) was established to create policies to help ensure the reliability of the bulk power generated in North America. The NERC policies provide guidelines for reporting machine availability and guidelines for generator system testing to verify models and performance of synchronous machines. NERC represents (10) regions, with the guidelines to vary depending upon specific standards for each region:
NERC's power to enforce their policies will be enhanced. Legislation submitted to Congress in April, 2002 and passed by the Senate mandates that all power producers comply with the policies and guidelines to be established by NERC. It is intended that the NERC policy will apply to anyone who sells power or is connected into the transmission grid and is one stepdown transformer removed from the System.
Reliability is the primary concern. To be able to predict the overall System Response and Reliability, NERC needs to know the capabilities of the generating systems and the anticipated performance for both steady state operation and during System transients caused by loss of generation, faults, or other types of disturbances.
INFORMATION REQUIRED BY NERC
E2 Power Systems, Inc. offers NERC COMPLIANCE TESTING of your Generating Systems - including On-Site Testing and Verification Service, compiling all data and modeling information, providing confirmation on the proper operation of all equipment, and including short/long term recommendations for each System.
NERC COMPLIANCE TESING includes the following general Work Scope:
A. Testing of the Auto Voltage Regulator
2. Tuning & Dynamic Performance Testing of all Limiters
(Overexcitation, Underexcitation, Volts Per Hertz, etc.)
B. System Model Verification Test
2. Unit Trip with 0 MW / 20% Leading VARs in AVR mode to determine Excitation System Parameters
3. Unit Trip in Manual VR mode to estimate internal Unit Reactances
4. Generator Trip @ 10% MW to determine Inertia Constant and Governor Performance
C. On-Line Verification of Generator Leading & Lagging Reactive Capability
D. Calibration Testing of Protective Relays
E. Tuning & Testing of the Power System Stabilizer
F. Report Prep for submittal to NERC
Call us at E2 Power Systems, Inc. to discuss your NERC COMPLIANCE TESTING needs for your Generating System. We perform these Engineering Services independent of all system equipment manufacturers. References provided at your request.
