Who should attend?

The seminar is designed for engineers, consultants, managers, and technicians at utilities, integrators, packagers and OEMs, as well as others who design, engineer, maintain and test protective systems, voltage/VAR control systems, and FLISR schemes. Relay technicians, and those responsible for testing and commissioning are encouraged to attend our Testing Lab Breakout Sessions.

  • The Power Plant Protection Track would benefit those involved with protection of power plant assets in both utility, cogeneration, and heavy industrial environments, as well as those looking for a deeper background on the subject.
  • The Distribution Protection & Control Track is designed for those who need a comprehensive understanding of the protection and control of medium-voltage, utility-type distribution systems, including solutions for the challenges due to the high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER).
