Texas A&M Conference for Protective Relay Engineers, 2014

The event was held 31 March - 3 April 2014, in College Station, TX, USA.

The 67th Annual Conference for Protective Relay Engineers was held 31 March - 3 April 2014 in College Station, Texas.  The oldest specialized protection conference aims to help protection engineers understand new protection concepts, advances in equipment and discuss with their peers problems that have occurred in the application of systems and devices. Engineers interested in the design, application, and operation of protective relay systems and equipment expand their knowledge by listening and discussing a wide range of papers.

The two-and-a-half day’s program included general and break-out paper sessions, thus allowing the organizers to include more papers in the conference, while at the same time giving the participants an option to choose which paper to listen to.

There were sessions focusing on protection of distribution systems, transmission systems protection and industrial applications, a very interesting session on real world experiences, as well as sessions focusing on testing and communications.

The morning sessions at the last day of the conference focused on a wide range of different topics.

Like during the 2013 conference, the interaction between the users and suppliers of protection, automation and control equipment occurred during the lunch breaks and the receptions following the end of the paper sessions.

All suppliers had their exhibition booths in the Bethancourt Ballroom in the Memorial Student Center at the Texas A&M University College Station campus where they demonstrated the newest equipment and tools in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Power. Flexible. Easergy.
