60-minute session

Utilities are evolving operating environments to keep up with new energy demands and a fast-changing technology landscape. Many are integrating utility-scale and residential distributed energy resources (DERs) into their electric grids at an unprecedented pace.

Meanwhile, the TDM technology they use for communications in IEDs such as relays and RTUs approaching end-of-life. In response to these changes, more and more utilities are turning to IEC 61850 to introduce automation and digitalization to their electric grids.

Join this live webinar to learn how IEC 61850 is revolutionizing the utility industry. Our panel will discuss the following IEC 61850 topics:
• Substation automation and control digitalization using IEC 61850
• Transitioning TDM-based substations to IEC 61850
• Building a communication infrastructure blueprint for IEC 61850 implementation
