Technical Tours

All registered participants and accompanying persons are welcome to join the IEEE ISGT Europe 2010 technical tours.

Technical Tour 1

National Metrology in Sweden, Electrical Quantities and Time
Host: SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden
Place: Borås
Aim: A demonstration of National Metrology in Sweden, electrical quantities and time
Short description: Visitors will be given a tutorial about Metrology in general and National Metrology in Sweden in particular. The SP activities in the fields of electricity and time will be demonstrated by laboratory tours. Several opportunities will be given for discussions with the metrology experts of each laboratory.

Technical Tour 2

The World's Smartest Substation? A PC controlled 130/40 kV Substation
Host: Vattenfall AB
Place: Ulricehamn
Aim: A demonstration of a PC controlled 130/40 kV substation
Short description: The PC controlled substation will be demonstrated. The substation control system provides basically the same functionality as the old systems, plus several new functions such as Transient Fault Recorders, Event recorders, impedance protection at 40 kV, busbar protection, and power quality measuring.

Technical Tour 3

ZigBee City: Smart Metering and the Experiences from Göteborg Energi
Host: Göteborg Energi
: Gothenburg
Aim: A demonstration of the AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) at Göteborg Energi.
Short description: Smart meters and the infrastructure for meter communication is one of the most important cornerstones in a smart grid. Visitors will be given information about functionality of the advanced smart meters, how they are used today, and the plans for future.
