"Theme Day" Measurement and Monitoring in Energy Distribution Networks
Power Quality / Micro Synchrophasor Seminar - November 1st - VSL Delft

VSL and C.N. rood are jointly organising a Measurement and Monitoring in Energy Distribution Networks seminar.

The transformation of traditional energy networks into future smart grids requires improved monitoring capabilities and applications. Furthermore, stringent regulations relating to the security of energy supply, the introduction of renewables and decentralised energy supply demand accurate monitoring for time-critical control to ensure the stability and quality of the energy supply.

The programme covers very topical subjects like monitoring the stability of distribution networks by means of Micro Synchrophasor, enhanced monitoring of Power Quality indicators and future applications supporting processing, storage and analysis of related measured data.

In short, this is an interesting programme which will end with a guided tour through the VSL laboratory and a network drink.

This seminar will also be held in Belgium on October 28 - Please click here for detailed information and registration.
