Kinectrics is hosting an Interoperability Testing Lab and Hands-on Training Course in Protection and Control (P&C) and IEC 61850

May 10-13, 2011 at Kinectrics 61850 Lab, Toronto, ON

June 21-24, 2011 at Kinectrics USA Facility, Cincinnati, OH

This course, designed for utility P&C engineers, system integrators, consultants and maintenance staff, substation automation designers, and commissioning engineers, includes the following modules:

  • Detailed presentation of the IEC 61850 standard for substation communications, modeling approaches, and the abstract communication service interface.

  • Substation configuration language using a vendor-independent tool to demonstrate specification of IEC 61850 systems.

  • A hands-on workshop to complete the theory portion of the standard studies.

  • Detailed applications and deployment strategies associated with protection applications and substation automation functional implementation using the new global standard IEC 61850.

  • North American applications for system integration and testing, with detailed step-by-step instructions for work around solutions. Attendees will have the opportunity to share the practical experience gained using a complete mock-up of live substation automation systems.

  • Experience in interactive system applications between GE and SEL relays as well as client/server applications for plug-and-work solutions.
