IEC 61850 System Specification: Practical Training Workshop

Monday 17th October 2022, 10:00 to 17:30
Workshop Format
As more and more utilities embrace digital substations, the pressure is on to develop advanced in-house specification skills and processes that will enable utilities to procure at the speed of the digital age, with the accuracy and cost-efficiency that remains the hallmark of the power grid.
This full-day workshop on System Specification, designed to assist utilities in developing the advanced Specification skills they need to ensure they remain in the driving seat of the end-to-end IEC 61850 implementation process
