Ready Engineering Services

Engineering services for the renewable power sector

NERC Testing, Modeling and Regulatory Compliance

Ready has performed hundreds of PRC assessments and MOD standard required testing for generator owners and transmission entities across North America. Our engineers are capable of testing and modeling even the most unique systems. Whether your system is hydro, thermal, wind or solar, Shermco and Ready can help your facility achieve regulatory compliance.

EMT Modeling for Renewable Generation

The number of renewable generation sites is growing, and as a result so is the need for Electromagnetic Transient (EMT) modeling. EMT modeling provides a more detailed response of renewable behaviors than can be achieved through positive sequence modeling. It is used to study systems in more depth and is increasingly required by ISOs.

EMT Model Validation:

Develop a site EMT model, utilizing PSCAD, and validate it against a positive sequence model, as is required by CAISO, ISO NE, ERCOT and others.

Detailed Short Circuit Analysis:

Perform short circuit analysis considering unbalanced faults, harmonics, transients and develop Voltage Controlled Current Source (VCCS) models for Inverter Based Resources (IBRs).

Interconnection Studies:

Perform studies for weak interconnections or areas of high renewable penetration.

Detailed Insulation Coordination and Transient Overvoltage (TOV) Studies:

Perform insulation coordination studies and determine overvoltage levels due to switching events.

Shermco does not offer or provide engineering services for projects based in North Carolina. If a North Carolina project requires engineering services, those services are contracted out to a North Carolina licensed engineering firm.
