Pacworld

Kalkitech July 17, 2019

The community of electric power system’s Protection, Automation and Control (PAC) specialists is comprised of small groups, spread around the world. They can be found in an industrial facility, utility, consulting company, university or other various establishments. Typically, we have a chance to meet one another and communicate during conferences, working groups or committee meetings while attending one of the industry’s national or international events. This is not enough.

The PAC field is very specialized and going through significant changes — deregulation, downsizing, loss of expertise and changes in technology. The publishing of IEC 61850 – the standard for substation communications – is further revolutionizing our domain. We work in an ever-changing environment and it is clear that there is a need for a global forum, especially now with the global push for Smart Grids where protection, automation and control play a significant role.
