IEC 61850: Communication Networks and Systems for Power Utilities — Tuesday, July 14, 1-2PM ET: IEC 61850 “Communication Networks and Systems for Power Utilities” is a powerful standard that provides a holistic view of designing and managing utility substation and field device communication, automation systems, and applications. It is a collection of multiple protocols, concepts, and component standards. With the objective of understanding the issues, challenges and benefits of implementing the IEC 61850 standard, we have developed a case study that presents a summary and analysis of deployments of the standard at the New York Power Authority (NYPA), Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L), and Southern California Edison (SCE). Each utility had very different experiences and value achievement in their respective implementations. They are also quite different in their plans for future implementations.Register here.
UPCOMING REALCOMM WEBINARS: Energy Management vs. Building Automation – Understanding the Differences – 7/16/2015. There has been a lot of “energy” in the smart building industry in the last two years. The activity has been coming from established companies, new Fortune 50 entrants and a host of start-ups. Many firms are interested in Energy Management Systems (EMS) and are implementing solutions. If they are not careful, they could find themselves in a segregated solution-set twenty-four months from now. It is important to understand the broader characteristics of an integrated, interoperable, open-architected, IP centric building automation platform that could include energy, security, parking, resource management, user experience and other applications. This webinar will discuss the differences between energy management and building automation. Register now!
