About This Event

MHz Visualization Opens New Horizons in Power Systems Analysis

Armando will present basic concepts of traveling waves in power systems, how to monitor traveling waves using signals sampled at one MHz and conventional instrument transformers. During the presentation you will see field records from USA, Mexico, India, and Colombia related to lightning, power system faults, and breaker reignition. Armando will show how to obtain traveling wave information from the current signals and how to use them to locate faults and lightning activity.

This is a free webinar - registration required. Webinar begins at noon Pacific Time.
