Conference Event Roundup

We have recently concluded two successful conferences on Automation and Control (SEAPAC) and our annual Transformer workshop.  Both Conferences were well attended and had interesting and informative presentations and discussions.

SEAPAC - South East Asian Protection Automation and Controls  conference was held in Melbourne on the 12th and 13th march.  The conference had over 140 delegates from 13 different countries with 36 papers presented.  The conference also saw 16 exhibitors on relevant technical subjects and provided a great forum for the exchange of information and ideas.
The next SEAPAC will be held in Sydney in March 2019.  Details to be advised.

Transformer Workshop - CIGRE Australia's A2 panel presented an innovative and informative presentation and workshop considering the raft of issues that are involved in specifiying, ordering, manufacture, delivery and operation of modern day transformers.  The day included presentations from a broad range of experts, including legal, manufacturing, maintenance, insurance and planning experts and concluded with an interactive panel and discussion session.
