5th Annual Canada Protection Symposium (CPS) - Special Virtual Event

December 1 - 3, 2020
10:00 am - 2:00 pm Eastern Time


With the continuing global health concerns about the spread of COVID-19, we have changed the format for this year's CPS from face-to-face to a LIVE virtual event. The dates will be the same—December 1-3, 2020. Below is a condensed agenda for the virtual program.

The 5th Annual Canada Protection Symposium (CPS) - Special Virtual Event will cover emerging and new technologies in the electric power industry on protection, automation, and control. This event is truly unique in our industry. You will be able to hear from 12 industry expert speakers, network with your peers, and hear from utilities sharing best practices and case studies. Take this opportunity to learn from industry experts and listen to their experiences.

Technical Agenda Highlights:

  • Protection, Automation, Control
  • Digital Substations, IEC 61850
  • New Developments in Testing Methods
  • Lessons Learned Through Utility Case Studies
  • Distribution Automation
  • Microgrids and Energy Storage
  • Big Data, Data Analytics, and AI
     

 


 

Optional Pre-Conference Tutorials

We are happy to provide you with two optional half-day tutorials on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. You can choose the IEC 61850 Tutorial, or the Distribution Automation Testing Tutorial, or attend them both!
 

Networking Basics for IEC 61850 and Digital Substation Applications Tutorial
This optional half-day session introduces the networking concepts necessary to successfully apply IEC 61850 technologies in the substation. Participants will gain a better understanding of how IED’s exchange GOOSE, MMS, and Sampled Values messages, as well as how to design a network that is reliable, efficient, and secure.


Field Testing a Distribution Automation Scheme Using RelaySimTest Tutorial
This optional half-day session provides a hands-on technical demonstration of how to thoroughly test a distribution automation scheme using power system simulation combined with end-to-end testing.
