AMPS 2010 (Applied Measurements for Power Systems 2010)
The goal of this workshop is to mainly collect scientific contributions from industries and laboratories, besides purely academic world. The idea is to create a channel to facilitate the recognition and update of the main urgent measurement issues and challenges in modern power networks. At the same time, currently adopted solutions and actions will also be discussed to stimulate improvements. With the growing interest towards the concept of Smart Grids, new kinds of measurement devices and appliances are increasingly requested to substitute the present ones. They must feature higher performances in terms of bandwidth, accuracy, weight, cost, options, communications, power supply, reliability. This opens a variety of new measurement as well as certification challenges. Indeed, most part of certification laboratories are not equipped to test, calibrate and certify new nonconventional sensors and instruments.
The workshop will offer a special opportunity to all those involved in the above topics for an open discussion that facilitates the exchange of solutions, proposals and collaborations. Moreover this event will serve also for exploring interest and availability of the participants to work on coordinated proposals for new technical Standards to update the old ones.
