Wide Area Coordination Study of Protection Coordination in the Transmission System and Boundaries

Detecting a lack of coordination before relay misoperations occur reduces risk of interruptions in service, brownouts, and blackouts. Automated Wide Area Coordination reviews are a practical way to increase system reliability.
In 2006, Rede Eléctrica de España (in Madrid) conducted a wide area review of protection coordination in a large portion of their transmission network, including the boundaries between generation, transmission, and distribution. Their study used an automated application of Electrocon International's CAPE software, uncovering hidden miscoordinations and other protection problems.
