Masterclass in Optimal Power Flow For Transmission & Distribution
Operation of transmission and distribution networks is becoming increasingly challenging.
Network loading is steadily increasing and flow patterns are becoming less predictable as renewable resources replace conventional generation. Under such conditions, ideal operating strategies are often difficult to determine and track. Optimal power flow (OPF) addresses this challenge by determining optimal set-point values throughout a network such that a specified objective (such as generator cost or loss minimization) is met whilst satisfying network constraints, including voltage, line-flow and generator limits.
This course is designed for practicing engineers in planning, operations, and markets who
undertake studies of transmission and/or distribution networks. The course will provide a thorough coverage of OPF algorithms and applications. It will begin by considering the various power flow models and representations that are commonly used in OPF. Contingencies will be incorporated through N-1 security and operating reserves.

Masterclass in Operations & Maintenance of IEC61850 Based Systems
Registrations are rolling in for this collaborative Masterclass brought to you by The Australian Power Institute, Jarrah Solutions & DT Partners. This course is designed for Supervisors, Engineers and Technical Officers that are involved in either the design, testing, commissioning, operations & maintenance or asset management of IEC 61850 based systems. Due to the course content, participants are expected to bring more than two years of substation protection, SCADA or control systems related experience.
This Master Class will provide participants with a working knowledge of how to test and asset manage IEC 61850 based systems and solutions based on today’s technology, demonstrated with proven products. Demonstrations will be performed using a multi-Vendor simulated substation environment. Demonstrations will supplement course material to help participants learn how to safely, reliably and efficiently test and asset manage IEC 61850 based systems.
