Power Quality & Micro-Synchrophasors in the grid
Smart Grid - Micro Synchrophasors & Power Quality, past, present and future
October 28 - Zellik

The worldwide electric network is changing rapidly. To cope and control all these changes in distribution and transmission there is a great need for a new approach and development of new applications in the field of measurement. In this seminar we bring all issues together with the best experts in the field.
This seminar will give you a great view of the actual situation, development and new applications today and in the future.

(This seminar will also be held in The Netherlands on November 1st - Please click here for detailed information and registration.)
