advanced substation design courseToday’s substation designs are becoming increasingly complex — and staying current with the latest technologies and techniques isn’t always easy. If you’re involved with substation design projects, make plans to join us for an Advanced Substation Design Course from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 2 at Burns & McDonnell’s suburban Chicago office. We’ll delve more deeply into a variety of topics that will better prepare you to deal with the changes and complexities facing the industry.

The course coincides with the upcoming EEI Transmission, Distribution & Metering Conference April 28-May 1 in Chicago. We’ve enlisted the help of a knowledgeable group of engineers from our Transmission & Distribution division to take you through an agenda that includes the following topics:

  • Advanced Substation IEC61850
  • How to Comply with NERC CIP
  • Sustainable Design for Substations
  • 3-D Design Coming to a Substation Near You
  • Advanced Substation Grounding
  • HVDC Growth in U.S. Transmission Networks
  • Power Transformers
  • EPC for Substation Project Delivery

This daylong learning session is ideal for anyone who works on substation design projects, especially:

  • Directors responsible for the utility’s system planning
  • Electrical substation engineers
  • Electrical substation project managers
  • Substation designers

Once you complete the course, you’ll qualify for 8 PDH credits. Register now to secure your spot for a day of learning and networking that’s a great way to cap off your conference experience. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our event coordinator, Kim Mulkey.

In the meantime, we hope to see you at the Transmission, Distribution and Metering Conference! The semi-annual event is an ideal opportunity to not only expand your knowledge of relevant industry networks, but also to meet and catch up with colleagues. Be sure to say hi if you see us — and if you attend our Advanced Substation Design course, stop back by the blog and let us know what you thought!
