8:30 a.m.–Noon

Tutorial I

Moderator: Larry Brusseau
Co-Moderators: Ryan Bergeron, Neil Stiller

Differential Relaying 101, Dave Bisel, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc

This tutorial covers high- and low-impedance bus differential, transformer differential, and line differential relaying concepts. Transformer inrush current is discussed along with second-harmonic blocking and restraint. A transformer differential relay setting example will be done so that engineers can see how the relay settings are calculated and entered into the relay. If time permits, differential relaying events will be shown with analysis of the oscillography from those events. − Intermediate

Tutorial II

Moderator: Scott Hoberg
Co-Moderators: Douglas Brown, Dan Nordell

Power Quality 101, Michael Marz, American Transmission Company

This presentation defines power quality and reviews power quality issues including sags and surges, harmonics, interharmonics, and flicker by discussing their causes, effects, measurement, limits, and mitigation. − Intermediate

Tutorial III

Moderator: Brianna Swenson
Co-Moderators: Bethlyn Cummings, Mike Steckelberg

Transformers 101, Yuriy Fradkin, William Herron, SPX Waukesha

This tutorial will cover: information to include when writing specifications to build the transformer you need, transformer physical and electrical theory and design, transformer maintenance and asset management best practices, and recommendations for transformer testing and diagnostics. − Advanced

Tutorial IV

Moderator: Tom Guttormson
Co-Moderators: Denny Branca, Jesse Tomford

Energy Storage, Jeffrey Plew, NextEra Energy; Jason Knedlhans, Mortenson
