Welcome to IEC 61850 Global 2020

As the pace of IEC 61850 deployment across the wider smart grid gains momentum, new implementation challenges around design, engineering, testing, operating, and maintaining multi-vendor multi-edition IEC 61850 systems are fast emerging. The 7th annual IEC 61850 Global 2020 draws together 150+ implementation leaders and specialists from across the world for a thorough review of the most sophisticated large-scale deployments of the standard within the substation, inter-substation, to the control room, across DER infrastructure, and beyond.

This 5-day event kicks off with a one-day workshop on the Fundamentals of IEC 61850 led by Christoph Brunner, President of it4power and Convenor of TC57 WG10, and is followed by a 3-day case study programme showcasing 20+ utility implementations of the standard in the most complex and dynamic grid environments. The event wraps up with a forward looking one-day seminar on the application of IEC 61850 across DER infrastructure.

As the only truly end-user driven meeting for the IEC 61850 community globally, this is the place to be if you want to get up to speed with the latest standardisation developments, deep-dive into lessons learnt from leading edge practical deployment on a large-scale, influence the direction of future product development, and power network with the cream of the global IEC 61850 technical community.
