EARTfelt Welcome dear friends of protection and control engineering, for the "most innovative" among us, the IEC 61850 Global 2018 will take place from 16 to 18 October. The three-day conference will be held for the fifth time this year and will take place in the Berlin Leonardo Royal Hotel on Alexanderplatz.
This year’s programme draws together 150+ IEC 61850 experts and implementation leaders for a review of the latest utility implementation case-studies and supplier technology innovations. It will be including many more international presentations and inviting a more global delegation to facilitate a wider exchange of end-user experiences, and ensure the optimal development of the standard for the global power grid community.
