    Substation synchronization tends to be an afterthought.  
    This is changing with the advent of digital substations.  
    Grid applications, including synchrophasor and GOOSE, demand a common time  reference 24 x 7 to co-ordinate system control and operations ranging from protection to  automation to measurement and analysis. Accordingly, operators need to plan for accurate,  reliable time distribution across the grid.  
    This session will explain
    1. The fundamentals of the IEEE1588 technology and its use to  complement GNSS/GPS system to distribute time synchronization
    2. explore the network requirement for the IEEE1588 hierarchy
    3. discuss a synchronization architecture blueprint

  • Your protection relays require hitless network protection switching
    Thursday, May 19, 2022 4:05 PM - 5:05 PM ET
    Learn about the lifecycle support of differential protection and distance protection relays on a converged IP/MPLS network.
    We’ll begin with an explanation of how to design and provision support for a multitude of existing and new protective relays  that meets the delay, jitter, delay symmetry and reliability requirements.  
    Key options and their benefits/drawbacks will be explored.  
    Performance monitoring and troubleshooting tips will be explained. A review of key learnings from recent industry testing will provide you insights into what’s new and its future direction. Please join us if you are considering converging your protection relay traffic onto an IP/MPLS network; or interested in sharing your learnings with peers.
