What to Expect?

September 14
@ 2pm ET
  MODERNIZATION: ReliaGear Switchgear   Reese Norton   A discussion regarding ABB’s new Switchgear product: ReliaGear LV SG. The conversation will expand on details surrounding the structure, breakers, and some available options and controls.
September 28
@ 2pm ET
  RELIABILITY: Relion Relays   Tanmay Kalra & Dinesh Baradi   An introduction to ABB’s Relion offering of a wide range of products for protection, control, measurement and supervision of power systems for IEC and ANSI applications. To ensure interoperable and future-proof solutions, Relion products have been designed to implement the core values of the IEC 61850 standard. This session will cover how the Protection and Control IED Manager PCM600 tool provides versatile functionalities for the entire life-cycle of all Relion protection and control IED applications, at all voltage levels for your next project.
October 12
@ 2pm ET
  SUSTAINABILITY: ZEE600 – Monitoring System Software & SCADA Solutions   Yacine Mallem   Substation and electrical grid digitalization is one of the major changes in a distribution networks turning data into information. Such changes are made possible by upgrading to digital devices, upgrading horizontal communication protocols to IEC61850, implementing remote access communications to run remote power management/HMI and Scada systems to cloud applications. Digitalization is seen in several applications and segments such as Power utilities, industries, renewables and infrastructure. Please join us to have a glance on how ABB is implementing digitalization in electrical grids and system networks.
October 26
@ 2pm ET
  MODERNIZATION: Sizing & Selecting Transfer Switches   Babu Chinnasamy   Facility managers are like skydivers--they can't know if their backup system actually works until they need it. Smart devices help to dramatically increase backup power system reliability through continuous monitoring. Learn how automatic transfer switch design can influence your asset health strategy and maintenance protocols, and how ABB's new Zenith T-Series ATS can help improve asset health and functionality.
November 9
@ 2pm ET
  RELIABILITY: Air Insulated Switchgear (AIS)   Scott Karas   For applications requiring ANSI switchgear, ABB has a full line of metal-clad, non arc-resistant switchgear available. For arc-resistant applications, ABB’s famous SafeGear® line features ratings up to 4000 A, 63 kA at 5 and 15 kV with the smallest footprint available in the industry. Projects with tight space constraints will benefit greatly from ReliaGear® ND, ABB’s narrow-design platform, which features a 26-inch wide, two-high, stacked breaker frame design at 5 and 15 kV. Standard metal-clad switchgear is offered with the Advance® platform featuring current ratings up to 63kA and 4000A. This session will cover the equipment construction and ratings and how it can utilized for applications throughout the ANSI areas.
November 23
@ 2pm ET
  SUSTAINABILITY: SSC600 – Centralized Protection & Control   Yacine Mallem   ABB Ability™ smart substation control and protection for electrical systems SSC600 centralizes all protection and control functionality in one single device on distribution substation level for minimal engineering, station-wide visibility and optimal process management. Combining SSC600 with merging units creates an IEC 61850-compliant centralized protection and control solution. The modular software can be flexibly modified for the entire lifetime of the digital substation and allows SSC600 to change with the evolving grid. SSC600 builds on ABB’s solid and proven technological foundation manifested in the renowned Relion® protection and control family of relay.
December 7
@ 2pm ET
  MODERNIZATION: Streamline Processes with Built-In Programmable Logic   Oscar Moreno   Remote monitoring and control capabilities are not dreams of the future, but common requirements in today's power distribution for increased availability, reliability and efficiency. Stop living in the past and learn about digital breakers for a digital era: SACE® Tmax® XT and Emax 2 circuit breakers with Ekip Touch and Hi-Touch trip units for streamlining your process with built-in programmable logic.
December 21
@ 2pm ET
  SAFETY: Machine Safety Evaluation   Jeff Leslie, John McHale & Darrell Burkeen   Few companies have the time or resources to stay current on today's machine safety standards -- yet the consequences of falling behind can be catastrophic. Hear from ABB's machine safety experts on the evolution in risk assessment and risk reduction and how this affects industry today.
