DRES Events Cancel before Start Time

by | Aug 26, 2018 | FAQ DRES-Group, trouble shooting GV operations-group

I have send several events to GRIDlink via DRES. However, all of them are cancelled automatically before the event start time. See log below..

The cancellation was due to the “2 Minute Warning”. If the Event is scheduled within 2 minutes of the current time it will automatically cancel. This is a safety precaution to prevent an immediate response before the Event appears in the status window. This will give the operator a minute or 2 to cancel the Event in case there was an input error.

Older versions of DRES do not display this warning. It is possible to disabled the “2 Minute Warning” but the user must be careful not to trip the relays immediately after entering the Event unintentionally. It is suggested to give the Event 4-5 minutes notice.
