DNV GL hosts a knowledge & experience session about ‘In control of your cable network’ with informal networking in the Novotel in Amsterdam on 28 November 2019, from 08:30 AM to 6:00 PM.
It is a challenge to any Distribution Network Operator, large power consuming industry or rail operator to increase control over their medium voltage cable networks. These assets age, face increasing variations in load, and have become more critical to ensure uninterrupted power supply whereas resources have become scarce. Avoiding unscheduled outages and having a better understanding of the condition of the grid will allow better resource planning, lower operational cost, more accurate allocation of investments and preserve the reputation of the grid operator. Hence operational excellence underpinned by effective condition monitoring is crucial in keeping your network up-and-running. Similarly, for asset replacement strategies, 24/7 access to real-time data and health reports of the underground cable network will put you firmly in control of the planning of the asset replacement and capital spent.
KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE SESSION
During this by-invitation-only event, with hands-on experience shared by Alliander and several other European customers, we will dive deeper in the subject of online condition monitoring, present several user experiences and provide insight in trends relevant to condition monitoring such as machine learning. Of course, there is plenty of room for questions and interaction with peers and experts. This event is free of charge.
