The following Pre-Conference Offerings for Relay 2019 will be on Monday, March 25, 2019 in the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M University.

GE Grid Solutions | Register Here
8:00am–4:00pm | MSC 2406A

Join GE for a no-charge technical seminar on the application of digital instrument transformers, demonstration of IEC61850 9-2LE networked Ethernet process bus and protective relaying trouble-shooting techniques

Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories | Register Here
8:00 am–4:00 pm | MSC 2400

Join SEL at our free technical seminar preceding the conference. Since the release of our latest technologies, including time-domain protection, software-defined networking, and digital secondary systems, we’ve been collecting feedback and analyzing the performance of these solutions in power systems around the world.

Siemens | Register Here
10:00 am–4:00 pm | MSC 2405

Learn how the innovative solutions from Siemens for protection and control can maximize reliability and safety. Siemens will be conducting pre-conference tutorial sessions on the following topics:

  • Using PSS® CAPE to Perform NERC PRC Compliance Studies
  • Fault Localization – SICAM FSI/FLiC
  • Digital Substation
  • Power Quality Monitoring for Distribution Generation & Distribution Applications
  • Grid Monitoring Solutions for Transmission & Generation

Evaluating Options for PRC-027-1 | Register Here
1:00 pm–4:00 pm | Rudder Tower 410

The compliance deadline for PRC-027-1 is rapidly approaching. Existing methodologies to comply will require extensive resources from utilities, so alternative methods should be considered.

Join us for a demonstration that will contrast the existing process to develop transmission line relay settings with an innovative and automated methodology that streamlines the relay settings development process in the R1 requirement. In addition, we will establish a methodology to optimize and automate the process to perform Wide Area Coordination studies for the R2 requirement. We will use ASPEN for fault simulations as well as SynchroGrid’s innovative Setting Automation Relay Assistant (SARA) software.

A free scripting macro to run coordination will be provided

Power Grid Engineering | Register Here
Generator Fundamentals and Protection
1:00 pm–4:00 pm | MSC 2404

Join Power Grid Engineering for a free highlight of our 2019 Power Systems Training Seminars. This half-day seminar session will focus on Generator Fundamentals & Protection. All materials for this course will be provided. Seminar certificates with 3 training hours will be provided to those who pre-register.  Topics covered include:

Generator Basics
Unit One Line Diagram
Recognize the Device Codes Used in Generator Protection
IEEE Guide to Generator Protection

ETAP | Register Here
1:00 pm–4:00 pm | Rudder Tower 501
