SEL technical paper analyzing substation outage wins award

Two SEL authors were awarded the 2017 Best Paper Award at this year’s Georgia Tech Protective Relaying Conference for their paper “A Current Story – When Primary Met Secondary.” SEL engineers Swagata Das and Ariana Hargrave wrote the paper with Genardo Corpuz of Lower Colorado River Authority.

The paper describes the investigation that resulted from a CT secondary wire making contact with a transformer bushing, causing an outage at a 138 kV substation. It details how relay event reports were used to substantiate the investigation results and gain additional insight into the fault.

Conference attendees vote for the best paper at the end of each year’s conference, and the award is presented the following year. Swagata and Ariana accepted the award for their paper during the luncheon for this year’s event on May 3.
