United States-Centralized Remedial Action Schemes (CRAS) Project.

Project End : 2014

Project Location : United States

Description: The Centralized Remedial Action Schemes (CRAS) project will centralize control and operation of SCE s special protection systems on the SCE transmission grid. The CRAS will transition existing special protection systems from an Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) at substations to a redundant and highly secure centralized processing system. The CRAS will

accommodate complex special protection systems that would not be possible with individual IED systems.

Cost: Approximately $51 million (estimated direct costs in nominal dollars, excluding corporate overheads).

Status: The project is anticipated to be completed during the third quarter of 2014.

Investment Partners: None.

Benefits: The CRAS will 1) mitigate and permit existing and new generation projects to connect to the grid and to meet California%s RPS goal; 2) enhance the coordination and effectiveness of existing special protection technology; 3) enhance the ability to build new schemes to enable

a more efficient generator interconnection process; and 4) improve the efficiency of managing and maintaining existing and new special protection systems.
