Workshop on Digitization in Power Transmission

Tuesday November 28th 2017

Energinet and Center for Electric Power and Energy at DTU invites you to participate in a workshop on digitization of the power transmission infrastructure. We will gather significant resources from utilities, industry and academia to answer the following questions:

What are the trends within digitization and automation of power transmission?

How do TSO strategies address digitization?

What are the possibilities offered by digitization and how will digital technology change the way we plan and operate transmission systems?

How can the universities research and educations support the development?

Please join us for a one-day session at the premises of our recently inaugurated, state-of-the-art research facilities in PowerLabDK in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark and learn about digital substations, applications of big data in power transmission and strategies, which include digitization in power transmission.
