High Voltage and Substation Automation Conference – REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN!

Register by Wednesday 8th April 2015 and get 10% off the registration fee!


The conference will be of special interest to the electrical engineering community of Queensland, as regulators are demanding continual improvement in high voltage and substation design, maintenance, safety, power system protection, automation and communication. The overall objective of the conference is to provide participants with hardhitting useful electrical engineering know-how which they can apply directly in their workplaces.

This conference will cover the AS 2067-2008 HV standard, including recent changes, and the rapid development in substation automation, in particular the IEC 61850. The conference will also discuss problems that arise from HV equipment maintenance and how industry can overcome these issues through well planned maintenance programs, adherence to standards/regulations and forward thinking.

Keynote Speakers:

Neville Gersch
Specialist Power Systems Engineer
Welcon Technologies

Daniel Moulds
Principal Engineer Control
Powerlink Queensland
