Conference Overview
The fast-paced evolution of microprocessor-based protection relays with their ever increasing waveform sampling rates and computing power, combined with availability of high-speed communication links is opening new opportunities for designing more sophisticated protection schemes and their networking and integration into station automation systems. In practical applications, however, incorporation of technological advancements is accompanied by many challenges, such as optimization of protection assets replacement strategies and degree of protection and controls functions integration, implementing adequate cyber security, managing protection system settings, maintenance practices and records, providing utility staff with timely requisite training, etc.

The main objective of the CEATI 2015 Protection & Control Conference is to bring industry professionals together to identify, discuss and develop solutions to common issues by sharing experiences and creating a networking opportunity for engineers concerned with application, optimization and the innovative use of advanced protection and control technologies in their power systems.
