SIPS Testing

Functional Testing of System Integrity Protection Schemes

by Alexander Apostolov, USA

System Integrity Protection Schemes (SIPS) play a very important role in ensuring the stability of electric power systems during wide area disturbances. They are complex hierarchical systems that may cover large geographical areas and use high speed communications between multifunctional Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) that perform different functions within the SIPS. Failure of SIPS to operate when needed or mi-soperation under non-critical system conditions may have a very significant impact on the stability of the electric power system. More
