  • The IPS® Network Model Management module is part of the IPS®ENERGY software that allows users to create, change, manage, and store CIM-based network models. It is a central repository and management system for the creation and maintenance of power system network models.

    IPS®NMM tool also fully meets all requirements for Network Model Management solutions that were published by CIM User Group. The requirements define the main objectives and product features, proposed requirement evaluation, typical NMM use cases, and the detailed requirement list. Compliance with the above requirements is built into IPS®SYSTEMS as a standard product. The IPS®NMM represents a cutting-edge feature that allows TSOs to start working with their new NMM tools immediately.

    Module Overview

    The core part of the IPS®NMM is the CIM based data repository that is built on top of the Microsoft SQL Server database system. It stores individual CIM data (entities, properties, and relations) as data points and not files.

    Version Control System concept (NMM-VCS) makes it easier to track changes to CIM based network models. For example, when you edit a network model, the NMM-VCS can help you determine exactly what changed, who changed it, and why it changed.

    IPS®NMM supports the creation of any number of network model projects related to the future state of the network model. These projects can be assembled with the operational model based on user-configurable criteria for analysis and tracking purposes.

    Information is accessible via several presentation layers:

    • Graphical layout (connectivity),
    • Tabular browsing,
    • Python scripting and
    • Querying.
  • IPS® Advanced Facility Ratings Management
    IPS® Advanced Facility Ratings Management (IPS®AFRM) is a newly developed solution that helps utilities meet all the requirements of FERC 881. It allows users to collect all rating information for all series devices and integrates weather data....

  • IPS®AFRM uses the connectivity defined in the network model to identify all electrically connected equipment to ensure accurate and transparent facility ratings. The system utilizes all established rating types for this equipment and includes calculated line limits imposed by the protection system. These rating types can be calculated on any needed time frame and utilizing any defined calculation for Base, Seasonal, AAR, or Emergency ratings using current and forecasted industry-recognized weather data.

    IPS®AFRM is a CIM-based solution capable of dynamically responding to changes in the network model based on available data. It can intelligently process all dynamic and static data from the lines and within the substations and can be connected to real-time monitoring systems. IPS®AFRM is available as an on-premises or cloud solution.

    Are you ready for FERC Order 881?

    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued an order, FERC 881, representing the most comprehensive changes to facility rating management in several decades. Utilities will be required to report seasonally/environmentally ambient adjusted performance ratings and manage a more significant number of performance ratings at different temperature levels. Thus, utilities must update their systems and processes to comply with this regulation.

    Static Ratings (Base Ratings)

    Often, static ratings reflect a manufacturer’s “nameplate ratings,” reflecting worst-case assumptions. While the assumptions used to determine the static ratings of transmission lines vary by operator, they are typically assumptions such as an ambient temperature of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), wind speeds and directions of .61 meters (2 feet) per second with a 90-degree wind to conductor angle, and clear skies with sunlight at midday. In the IPS® system, these assumptions can be adjusted according to the customer’s requirements. For all rated values, the system includes limits imposed by the protection system for overcurrent and distance protection. These limit values are calculated in the system by the IPS®SLC (Safe Load Calculation) module.

    Seasonal Ratings

    Traditionally, seasonal assessments are calculated similarly to static ratings but with different assumptions about environmental conditions for summer and winter. In support of FERC 881, users will define all four seasons, although not necessarily three months each. Assigning ambient temperature assumptions (typically based on 5- or 10-year historical maximums) for each season, this is generally used for planning purposes. In the future, seasonal assessments will also consider solar irradiance (day and night). Emergency Ratings may also be established for seasonal evaluations.

    Ambient Adjusted Ratings (AARs)

    For FERC 881, you must provide AARs on an hourly basis with a 10-day forecast for all applicable equipment documented in the Facility Rating Methodology used. IPS is working with DTN (www.dtn.com) to provide real-time weather data by location and all historical data needed to meet the FERC 881 requirement of 5 years. AARs will account for static design assumptions that are modified hourly by ambient temperature and solar irradiance. FERC 881 requires that AARs be recalculated whenever the temperature changes to 5 degrees or more since the last calculation. IPS allows any desired temperature range down to 1 degree.
