The energy system is evolving rapidly, taking on a more flexible, decentralised form to support the ever-expanding uptake of renewable energy and DERs. The critical infrastructure that coordinates the energy system, SCADA, EMS and DMS, must evolve alongside it, delivering real-time intelligent control and supervision of exponentially more generation units, balancing supply and demand with intermittent resources and managing bidirectional flows in traditionally unidirectional infrastructure.

This represents an extreme shift in the architecture and operational philosophy, as well as the hardware and software requirements of smart grid SCADA infrastructure. With the energy transition rapidly taking root, it’s imperative that utilities keep the pace and deliver the necessary changes to continue the smooth operation of the energy system in an increasingly fossil-free world.

We are therefore delighted to announce the 4th annual NextGen SCADA Global 2020 conference, exhibition and networking forum, the only event focussed on equipping smart grid SCADA professionals with the tools and knowledge they need to tackle the challenges of a rapidly evolving energy system. To ensure all your knowledge requirements are comprehensively catered for, we’ve expanded the event to a 5-day format, including a pre-conference System Integration Tutorial and a post-conference Cybersecurity Seminar alongside the main 3-day case study agenda

Just some of the topics that will be discussed include:

  • Next-Gen SCADA Infrastructure: Presenting a vision for the future of smart grid SCADA and outlining the necessary steps to achieve it
  • Modular Design: Designing flexible next-gen SCADA architectures to meet the challenge of a rapidly evolving energy system
  • Panel – Business Case: Examining SCADA in the context of the energy transition to build a compelling business case for investment in advanced features
  • ADMS: Integrating SCADA with DMS and OMS to create a centralised platform for advanced management of distribution grids
  • Upskilling: Developing organisational capability to implement, operate and continuously upgrade next-gen SCADA systems
  • System Testing: Rigorously testing next-gen SCADA systems to ensure their long-term security, resilience and reliability
  • SCADA Migration: Seamlessly migrating to next-gen SCADA while maximizing value from legacy systems
  • Wide-Area Monitoring: Leveraging phasor measurement units to improve situational awareness and grid resilience
  • Next-Gen HMI: Leveraging next-generation HMI and visualizations to improve control centre accuracy and productivity
  • Panel – Advanced Features and Functionalities: Unlocking new SCADA features to maximize technical benefits and improve R.O.I
  • Smart Alarms: Developing smart alarm management to improve outage management outcomes and response times
  • SCADA Data: Maximizing enterprise-wide benefits from SCADA through effective extraction and utilization of SCADA data
  • Protocol Integration: Achieving long-term interoperability between SCADA and the full range of smart grid IT and OT systems
  • Network Modelling: Developing advanced modelling capabilities to support more sophisticated network monitoring and control
  • SCADA & DERs: Developing Next-Gen SCADA functionality to fully support flexibility and an evolving energy market
  • Low-Voltage Monitoring: Extending SCADA to the LV network to support higher levels of DER integration and smarter system operation
  • Advanced Outage Management: Leveraging advanced SCADA functionalities to achieve more accurate and monitoring outage management
  • FLISR: Leveraging real-time data to intelligently locate, isolate and restore faults
  • Forecasting: Developing advanced forecasting models to support a wide range of next-gen SCADA analytical tools
  • Wireless IP-Based SCADA: Creating an affordable and scalable wireless SCADA infrastructure to deliver flexible control and monitoring of DERs and grid-edge devices
