Beckwith Presents Electric Protection Seminar

Beckwith Electric Co., Inc., a provider of goods and services for industries involved with electric power, communications and advanced electronic technology, is now registering attendees for its ninth annual Protection Seminar to be held Sept. 24-28, 2006 at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort in Clearwater Beach, Florida. This seminar includes four days of intensive training and instruction.

Topics include:

  • Latest Generator Protection Developments Reflected in IEEE Guides
  • Transformer and DG Interconnection Protection
  • Update on the Current Status of DG Interconnection Protection: What IEEE P-1547 Doesn't Tell You About DG Interconnection Protection
  • Blackout Avoidance
    • Topics: Blackout Commission Report, Relevant IEEE Papers, Latest NERC Requirements
    • Application and Setting of protection relays
    • Commissioning and Testing of protection relays

The Protection Seminar will be of interest to utility engineers, consultants (especially those involved in IPP/DG design), equipment/control design engineers, generator set manufacturers and packagers, as well as others who specify and develop settings for the electrical protection of generators and transformers. This seminar will provide the background information necessary to understand the complex subject of generator, power plant transformer and DG interconnection protection-even for those with a limited knowledge of protective relaying.

Deadline for registration is Friday, Aug. 11, 2006. The seminar cost is $925 and includes all course materials, breakfast and lunch, morning and afternoon breaks, and a Sunday evening welcome reception. Enrollment is limited so early registration is advised. 15% group discount applies for 3+ attendees from the same company. All attendees must be registered at the same time for the group discount to apply.
