Protection & Control
Arc Flash Analysis
T&D System Modeling
Properly designed and coordinated protection relay settings are crucial to power systems reliability and safety. CMY Solutions’ protection and control team has extensive experience in setting protection relays for all varieties of power systems. Our team can evaluate and optimize existing protection schemes and new construction schemes. We are experienced in balancing reliability and security, and always make sure to meet applicable NERC standards.
CMY Solutions has the answer to all your Arc Flash study needs. Our engineers have considerable experience in performing arc flash studies for all voltage classes and system types including transmission and distribution systems, power plants, low-voltage station service and distributed generation. Our team understands and works to ensure that all the requirements of OSHA, NFPA and NESC are met at the end of the analysis.
We use our clients preferred choice of modeling and analysis software such as ETAP, EasyPower, SKM, CYME, or CAPE to complete the arc flash analysis. CMY also has developed custom tools and methods of analysis to aid in performing an arc flash study.
The accuracy of a utilities transmission and distribution model has implications across multiple departments within the utility. Investing in the quality of your transmission and distribution models has compounding benefits and is one of easiest ways to get great return on investment. If you have any doubt about the accuracy of your model --whether its verifying topology, line constants, protection modeling, or equipment information– CMYs experienced engineers can help alleviate those concerns. Well versed in a wide array of modeling software, CMY can aid you in building a model from scratch, verifying and updating model information, or modeling future projects which will improve the accuracy of your analyses and make the model easier to maintain.
CMY provides you with the tools, strategies, and training needed to understand and address the NERC and Regional Reliability Standards for system protection. CMY will work with you on the path to compliance, helping you avoid fines while also increasing your system reliability. We offer services for the following studies:
Custom Calculation Sheets
CAPE & ASPEN Macro
LiDar Data Utilization
Proper documentation of relay settings calculations is paramount to ensuring your desired protection philosophy is implemented and maintained. CMY develops custom calculation sheets to fit your needs and help standardize your settings calculations. We utilize proprietary tools to help increase efficiency of relay setting development such as combining automated fault studies with the calculation sheets and your protection philosophy to ensure your relays are set to your desired parameters each and every time.
CMY has numerous CAPE macros used to increase the efficiency of several studies such as arc flash analysis, line constant calculations, and relay settings development. We have even developed an interface to create your own custom macros! Our engineers have also presented some of our CAPE tools and knowledge at the Electrocon CAPE Users Group Meeting the last two years, which can be viewed on our website.

Are your transmission lines modeled correctly? Are you confident your line constants are accurate? If you have LiDar data, why not use it?
CMY is at the forefront of utilizing LiDar data to accurately model transmission lines and/or verify the existing transmission lines in your model are correct. We have developed custom tools to extract transmission line information from LiDar and PLS-CADD models to help verify your information is accurate. After all, short circuit, protection, and coordination are heavily impacted by the line impedances, so let us help you in making them as accurate as they can be.
