The Pre-Conference Offerings for Relay 2017 will be on Monday, April 3, 2017 in the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M University.


1-4pm, Rudder Tower Room 410

SynchroGrid will provide an in-depth course that discusses conventional methods and practices for setting a SEL-421 relay as well as recent advances in the automation of settings development. The attendee will be guided through the process of using ASPEN to perform simulations, entering data in equations, and exporting the final settings to an RDB. They will also be shown how to automate this process, making relay setting development simpler, faster, and more accurate.  A free settings calculation spreadsheet will be provided to all who attend.
