Example of Geomagnetic Induced Current (GIC) Calculations

Appendix II of the Application Guide: Computing Geomagnetically-Induced Current in the Bulk-Power System published by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation shows calculations of GIC currents and related quantities for a hypothetical power system with 6 buses and 3 substations. This system is available here for use in PowerWorld Simulator. These may be examined in the free […]
