Webinar recording: Communications for grid control and protection – now and next  


Access this recorded discussion where experts look at the challenges and risks power utilities face with control and protection systems due to the changing nature of generation at the transmission and distribution levels. And how new approaches to control and protection used by utilities are being supported with their IP/MPLS WAN.

Lessons learned through first-hand experience with critical applications – SCADA, protection, critical voice, operating on several utilities’ IP/MPLS WAN during the past decade will be highlighted. Research investigating control and protection challenges, and a move to current differential protection supported on Ethernet will be discussed.
