Southern Cross Transmission Files Petition for Route with Mississippi Public Service Commission

LCG, April 27, 2017--Pattern Energy Group LP (Pattern Development) yesterday announced that its affiliate, Southern Cross Transmission LLC, has filed a petition for a siting certificate with the Mississippi Public Service Commission (MPSC) for the Southern Cross Transmission project, which would calls for the construction of a new, high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission line to connect Texas with the Southeast. The new connectivity and capacity between the ERCOT grid and the Southeast would provide a new means to deliver the ever-growing wind power generated in Texas to new markets in the Southeast. The project is expected to start construction in 2018 and to begin delivering power in 2021.

DOE Award on Dynamic Simulation Tools and Measurement-Based Control

LCG, Sept. 20, 2012 - LCG Consulting (LCG) of Los Altos, California, is a part of the consortium organized by Michigan State University, which is recently awarded a $1.5 million grant by the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability under DOE Advanced Modeling Grid Research Program.

The project team -- Michigan State University, University of Illinois-Chicago, Florida State University Center for Advanced Power Systems, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Southern California Edison, and LCG Consulting -- will develop a Lyapunov function based remedial action screening (L-RAS) tool that uses real-time data. This approach is expected to supports selection of appropriate remedial actions that are most likely to result in stabilizing trajectories.

For this project, LCG Consulting will provide high level advisory services in the areas of electric system modeling, develop and implement a user interface to L-RAS as well as develop and run scenarios using its proprietary UPLAN models to support the team modeling efforts.

The DOE Advanced Modeling Grid Research Program leverages scientific research in mathematics for application to power system models and software tools. It is envisioned that the selected projects will result in a new class of decision support tools that will simulate dynamic events and help inform operators on real-time conditions to maintain stability.
