Two-day special Course on Crucial Standards for Smart Grids in Dallas (TX), October 19-20, 2010

A two-day special seminar and training on key standards for Smart Grids (IEC 61850, IEC 61400-25 and DNP3) will be conducted by Karlheinz Schwarz during the

Remote 2010 Conference & Expo
October 19-20, 2010
Dallas, Texas

Useful information and interoperable information exchange are among the most crucial needs for Smart(er) Grids. The “NIST Smart Grid Interoperability Standards Roadmap” recommends several standards for the interoperable exchange of information at the process level. Crucial standards like IEC 61850 and DNP3 are marked as high priority solutions. These standards are used in various application domains in medium and high voltage power systems. While most transmission systems are well monitored and automated there is almost no monitoring and automation in distribution networks. One of the crucial application domains for IEC 61850 is power (gas, oil and water) distribution.

This course is designed for utility IT and engineering staff who are tasked with
specifying, organizing, managing and verifying open standards-based projects
aimed at sustainable interoperability. The application of the standards is not restricted to power system automation - its use is underway in many automation application domains like factory or process control automation. The roots of the standard IEC 61850 are - among others - the factory and process automation domains in the eighties.
