Georgia Tech Fault and Disturbance Analysis Conference

Georgia Tech Fault and Disturbance Analysis Conference

The 22nd Annual Georgia Tech Fault and Disturbance Analysis Conference was held at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The event is jointly organized by The Transient Recorder Users Council and Georgia Tech.
The conference brings together specialists in the field of transient and disturbance recording technology and fault and disturbance analysis to discuss developments in technology and analysis tools, as well as recent events and power system disturbances, and possible solutions based on advanced technology.
As usual the conference program included the interactive presentation/discussion "Display and Discussion of Actual Fault Records Brought by Participants," which challenges the attendees to figure out what had happened. The User Forum at the end of Day 1 was attended only by utilities representatives to share their experience with equipment and tools.
The best paper award for the 2018 conference was presented to Robert Orndorff, Kyle Thomas, Patrick Hawks, Brian Starling (Dominion Energy) and Amir Makki, Maria Rothweiler (SoftStuf) for their paper "Transmission Line Fault Location Explained."  

After the end of the afternoon session the participants visited the hospitality suites to see demonstrations and discuss the latest technology.
