Optional Pre-Conference Tutorials

We are happy to provide you with two optional half-day tutorials on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. Choose to attend one or the other, or both! Each Tutorial is CAD$50. 

Digital Substation Cybersecurity
Gateways and firewalls, traditionally located at the substation LAN perimeter, cannot prevent the transmission of unauthorized network traffic within the cyber defense perimeter. This tutorial focuses on the benefits of securing substation LANs through the complementary security features of SEL's SDN solution and OMICRON's Functional Security Monitoring IDS through both lecture and demonstration lab exercises.

System-Based Testing
A new way for testing protection systems
During this tutorial, the underlying philosophy of system-based testing will be discussed, followed by an explanation and demonstrations of line protection and transformer protection using RelaySimTest.
