Previously held on Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 10 AM EDT

In July, Triangle MicroWorks hosted and participated in a webinar including UCA International User Group (UCAIug), DNV Energy Systems, and Elewit from Red Electrica Group to present the upcoming changes involved with IEC 61850 Ed. 2.1. With these changes comes new conformance test procedures and policies for Ed 2.0 & 2.1 conformance testing. Click here to watch the recorded webinar from July.

In this upcoming webinar, we will briefly review those topics with a focus on migration strategies and how to prepare for the update to Ed 2.1. The best way to prepare for a successful migration is by testing in advance of implementing the update to Ed 2.1. Testing can help you understand any challenges, minimize the risks involved and uncover any issues early on for planning purposes.
