Introduction to Transmission Line Time Domain Protection

Wednesday, February 13, 2019


Ryan McDaniel

Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories

About the Topic

Time domain protection is providing major improvements in tripping speed due to less filtering required by the algorithms used. This presentation will compare the performance of time domain distance elements (TD21) and time domain directional elements (TD32) versus phasor based 21 and 32 protection. It will also show how the simplicity and speed of traveling wave differential protection (TW87) is leading to trip times under 2 ms. Traveling wave fault location is giving fault location results within 30m of the actual fault location.

About the Speaker

Ryan McDaniel earned his BS in computer engineering from Ohio Northern University in 2002. In 1999, Ryan was hired by American Electric Power (AEP) as a relay technician, where he commissioned protective systems. In 2002, Ryan began working in the Station Projects Engineering group as a protection and control engineer. His responsibilities in this position included protection and control design for substation, distribution, and transmission equipment as well as coordination studies for the AEP system. In 2005, Ryan joined Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. and is currently a senior field application engineer. His responsibilities include providing application support and technical training for protective relay users. Ryan is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Illinois and a member of IEEE.
