Title: Executive Summary to PDCI Oscillation Damping Controller Software Documentation.

Abstract

This report serves as the executive summary to the comprehensive document that describes the software, control logic, and operational functions of the Pacific DC Intertie (PDCI) Oscillation Damping Controller. The purpose of the damping controller (DCON) is to mitigate inter-area oscillations in the Western Interconnection (WI) by active improvement of oscillatory mode damping using phasor measurement unit (PMU) feedback to modulate power flow in the PDCI. This report provides the high level descriptions, diagrams, and charts to receive a basic understanding of the organization and structure of the DCON software. This report complements the much longer comprehensive software document, and it does not include any proprietary information as the more comprehensive report does. The level of detail provided by the comprehensive report on the software documentation is intended to assist with the process needed to obtain compliance for North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC-CIP) as a Bulk energy system Cyber Asset (BCA) device. That report organizes, summarizes, and presents the charts, figures, and flow diagrams that detail the organization and function of the damping controller software. The PDCI Wide-Area Damping Controller is the result of a collaboration between Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Montanamore » Tech University (MTU), and the Department of Energy (DOE).« less
