Industry Trends in Brownfield Substation Design - 2015 Report

Webinar Date: 12 November 2015
Webinar Time: 10:00 AM PST | 12:00 PM CST | 1:00 PM EST | 6:00 PM GMT

Increasing the efficiency of brownfield substation projects is essential to meeting the challenges of aging equipment, growing electricity demand, and smart grid initiatives.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Hear key findings from a recent industry report on brownfield design practices
  • See how your design practice measures up to industry norms
  • Learn about new technologies that enable greater design efficiency

Charles Newton, president, Newton-Evans Research Company, will present results from an international survey of electric utilities and consulting engineers that illuminate the current state-of-the-art in brownfield substation engineering. Mr. Newton will be joined by John Zwerlein, director of electrical products, Bentley Systems, who will provide expert commentary on what the results may mean for your organization. The presentation will include findings on:

  • Common challenges in brownfield design
  • The growing use of protective relays, communications devices, and Smart Grid technologies
  • The prevalence of laser scans for capturing as-built data when records are missing or inaccurate
  • The use of design automation and 3D modeling tools to accelerate projects
  • Typical practices for coordinating designs across disciplines and between owners and engineering consultants

All webinar attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the 37-page industry report.
