We list a lot of events by SmartGrid and can attest to the quality of their conferences. This conference would be ideal for those working with SCADA and ICS industries – particularly interested in substation automation. There are a variety of protocols available, including several proprietary protocols with custom communication connections – and this conference will address many of them. Users of substation automation systems will benefit from interoperability between devices from different vendors and since 1995, an IEC project community of about 60 members from various countries has participated in three IEC working groups. They developed IEC 61850 in response to all of the questions and goals, so if you need more help in understanding this set of protocols you’ll get a lot of value from attending this SCADA conference.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Sunday, April 11th 2021, or created by us.
The inaugural IEC 61850 USA 2021 virtual conference draws together pioneering IEC 61850 implementation leaders and specialists for an intensive day of utility case-study reviews. Join this ground-breaking assessment of innovative pilot projects and commercial deployments, and understand the lessons learned and management-approved roadmaps that will help you drive your own IEC 61850 programs with greater ease and speed.
The conference focuses on real-life implementation experiences and showcases utility case studies in the areas of IEC 61850 feasibility studies, developing specifications, designing station bus and process bus architectures, configuration, testing, operation, maintenance, and managing complex multi-vendor multi-edition systems. It also addresses complex challenges around fine-tuning the time synchronization, cybersecurity, and protocol integration aspects of the system for optimal performance. In addition to exploring the applications of IEC 61850 within legacy and new substations, the program delves deep into inter-substation, substation to control center, and DER applications, paving the way for the application of the standard across the wider smart grid.
This program consists of 12 x case studies, 3 x technology innovation presentations, 4 x live Q&A panel sessions, a 90-minute roundtable discussion session, all in just one intensive high-value day.
