Watertown, MA, USA – May 13, 2011

Doble will bring together industry experts and utility engineers from around Europe for the 17th Annual EuroDoble Colloquium, which will be held on the 17-19 October 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden. The focus of this year’s conference is “Risk Management: How to Achieve Greater Power Availability in a Climate of Increasing Unreliability.”

EuroDoble is designed for utility engineers involved with maintenance, protection or asset management and provides a forum to learn from recognized experts and share best practices for managing European power stations and industrial sites.

Participants can take part in a series of Asset and Maintenance Management sessions that focus on asset risks, network performance and profitability as well as techniques and practices for the future of the industry. Colloquium highlights also include High Voltage equipment training and technical sessions focusing on transformer life, dissolved gas analysis for tap changers, and partial discharge (PD) diagnostics for routine and non-invasive surveys.

EuroDoble also features a 3-day Protection Track with technical presentations on the testing of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs); new techniques and challenges in testing IEC 61850 compliant IEDs; and the management of relays as part of an overall asset management program. This track also includes an IEC 61850 tutorial and a hands-on session for relay/IED testing.

This year’s Colloquium will host the inaugural meeting of the Doble PDS100 Users Group with application training and knowledge sharing for engineers working with this specific PD detection tool. EuroDoble also features a Utility-Only Session for open discussion without the presence of manufacturers
