Hands-on Training at STRI big success

The first Hands-on Training at STRI in Ludvika, Sweden, from 25.-28. November 2008 was a great success.
Many experts have been trained on how to use real multivendor IEDs for protection an control of substations. IEDs from ABB, Areva and Siemens as well as test sets from Omicron and Dobel have been used to run the training. A second group has run hands-on training in the use of configuration tools.
The next public hands-on training by NettedAutomation and STRI will be held in Frankfurt (Germany) on March 03-06, 2009.
