Black start and system restoration is one of Dominion Virginia Power’s reliability priorities. In cooperation with PJM and adjacent utilities, Dominion keeps making and updating its own black start restoration plan. The plan is made in compliance of NERC’s system restoration standards and provides guidance for restoring Dominion’s bulk electric system based on ideal restoration conditions. This presentation introduces RTDS based methodology of studying black start process on specific cranking paths in Dominion’s SRP with the consideration of system dynamics and relay configuration.
