Iowa-Nebraska System Protection and Substation Conference

October 22-24, 2019
La Vista, NE

The Iowa/Nebraska System Protection and Substation Conference was originally established in 1977 as a three day protection school presented by Westinghouse. It continued as a one day protection seminar until 1991, where a second day was added to cover general substation topics. In 2002, in an effort to integrate current events and trends affecting utilities, a third day was added.

Attendance includes engineers, technicians, and other professionals involved with relaying and substation construction and maintenance from utilities across Iowa and Nebraska. Along with various municipalities and cooperatives.

The program is organized by the Omaha Public Power District, System Protection and Substation Engineering departments. The program consist of informal presentations by the host vendor and the participating utilities. Presentations are technical in nature and address design, application, or operational issues.

What makes this utility conference unique is that it is comprised of utility professionals and one sponsoring manufacturer or vendor. Utility discussions and presentations make up over 50% of the presentations. These program guidelines have ensured that this conference remains a successful utility engineer’s conference.
