SEACON is a hybrid (heuristic & algorithmic)expert system for contingency analysis and preventive or corrective control of the transmission network, that has been
recently redesigned to implement new end user requirements
and to increase its performance. This paper describes the
main results and the operational experience from the
development and implementation of a new system based on
the initial idea. Software reuse strategies became capital in this project. The new design includes advanced functionalities demanded by the practical use of the former system. Because of the high performance of the new system (up to fifteen times faster than the original) and its friendly user interface, SEACON has become a very valuable tool among dispatchers.
SEACON is in operation in the Red Electrica’s National
Control Centre and in Iberdrola’s Central and Regional
Control Centres, dealing with transmission and subtransmission networks (ranging between 4OOkV and
66kV), attached to the on-line state estimators and screening over 2000 possible contingencies. Results are presented using natural language, and a client-server scheme provided for corporate access.
