GE Digital Energy Publishes Protection & Control Journal Focused on Decreasing Installation and Maintenance Costs for Utilities

October 27, 2008, MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada -- GE Digital Energy's latest edition of its quarterly Protection & Control Journal presents industry-leading protection & control (P&C) white papers and articles to help power utilities manage the ever-increasing costs associated with the design, installation, and maintenance of utility substation P&C systems.

This edition provides a unique, in-depth analysis of IEC 61850 Process Bus -- a substation communication protocol to collect and digitally transfer data between switchyard equipment and the control room. It includes articles such as “Business Considerations in the Design of Next Generation Protection & Control Systems” and “The Advantages of IEC 61850 Process Bus Over Copper-Based Protection & Control Installations.”

Each issue of GE Digital Energy's Protection & Control Journal features white papers, articles, and presentations, some previously presented at leading industry conferences, which explore new technologies, industry trends, best practices, and case studies from companies worldwide. The focus of the publication changes quarterly. Previous editions have explored topics such as cyber security, capacitor banks, transformer and transmission line protection, and the implementation of substation automation projects.

Every issue also contains the latest P&C industry innovations, engineering quick tips, and upcoming industry events and conferences. The Protection & Control Journal reaches more than 5,000 subscribers quarterly, and thousands of additional copies are distributed at top P&C conferences and seminars throughout the year.

“The Protection & Control Journal has become a trusted resource for P&C professionals around the world. It offers readers innovative ideas and addresses their business challenges,” said Claudio Cargnelli, Global Marketing Manager, GE Digital Energy. “We are proud to be able to provide this unique resource to the industry.”
