Distribution and Substation Automation offers you a multitude of benefits including: -Increased function and reliability of electrical protection -Advanced disturbance and event recording capabilities aiding in details electrical fault analysis among others. Furthermore, the workshop is designed to familiarize the power systems engineers with all aspects of substation automation systems and monitoring. The different levels of substation integration and automation are outlined and discussed. The components and architecture of the typically substations automation vendors are identified and detailed; the advantages of each are outlined. The characteristics and operations of the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) are examined. A practical checklist is then provided of the optimum way to implement this technology to your next project.
