The Substation Technology 2009 Conference is a two day programme, packed with informative sessions and interactive discussions, delivering an examination of the plant equipment you are working with, the techniques employed to increase intelligence, and reviewing the cost effective design options for substations and the IEC 61850 standards.

As an integral part of the transmission and distribution network in the UK, substation technology is undergoing the same analysis as the rest of the ageing infrastructure. Economic and environmental concerns, plus an increasing growth in demand are placing huge pressures on existing substations.

As the industry increases investment in transmission and distribution networks and increases substation construction, the need becomes clear to create a reliable, self-healing active power network, ensuring reliability and responding effectively.

This event will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the technology employed in substation automation projects, as well as the design, management and construction of the modern substation.

Substation Technology 2009 provides a forum to overcome the disconnection between “the folks making this equipment and those who are using it”.

Why attend?
