System operators andplanners develop and implement restoration plans based on off-line simulationstudies, and accumulated experience and knowledge. One of the challenges indeveloping a restoration plan is to sift through numerous possible restorationscenarios and paths, in order to identify those that are technically feasible.When implementing a restoration plan in an on-line environment following ablackout, the operators need to adapt to the actual outage scenarios andavailable resources, and be constantly mindful of anticipated voltage andfrequency excursions that must remain within system and equipment tolerances. Inrecognition of these challenges, EPRI has developed System RestorationNavigator SRN, to provide decision support to system restoration planning andoperations engineers in developing, evaluating and revising system restorationstrategies, guidelines, plans and step-by-step procedures. During 2013-2014,EPRI developed SRN version 3.0, which is designed to facilitate its integrationinto a commercial operator training simulator OTS AKA a dispatch trainingsimulator, DTS. The integration of SRN 3.0 with an OTS allows operators toobtain experience in simulating, developing, experimenting with and revisingsystem restoration plans, and to address related regulatory standards. Theintegration expands the usability of SRN 3.0 by providing the OTS platform fortraining purposes and for the purpose of interfacing SRN 3.0 with operationalpower system models to be able to explore near real time application of SRN3.0. This 2013-2014 development work also included the integration of SRN 3.0into EPRI OTS, and its application on the Florida Reliability CoordinatingCouncil FRCC power system. A detailed account of development of SRN 3.0, itsintegration into EPRI OTS and its application to FRCC system is presented inthis paper.
