The 2020 Protection & Control Seminar will be held July 27-30, 2020, at the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach, Florida.

The seminar is divided into two program tracks, Power Plant Protection and Distribution Protection & Control. The Power Plant Protection Track provides an in-depth study of Generator and Transformer Protection, Motor Bus Transfer, and more. The Distribution Protection & Control Track provides an in-depth study of Transformer Protection, Feeder Protection, DER/DG Operation, Protection & Control, and Distribution System Optimization: VVO/CVR.

The seminar includes four days of intensive training and instruction, course materials, up to 2.8 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), 28 Professional Development Hours (PDHs), or 28 Continuing Technical Development Credits (CTDs), and the opportunity to interact with our knowledgeable instructors in a casual classroom environment. Participant interaction is encouraged to gain from the shared experiences of others. Opportunities to discuss needs-based case studies and examples are available throughout the seminar.

Hands-on Testing Lab Breakout Sessions are also available for each seminar track. These hands-on sessions are designed for individuals who are not required to learn complex setting equations, but want a solid understanding of proper test procedures.
