Wednesday, April 16 – 10:30 a.m.

Automated Testing of Reclosers
As the technology of Recloser Controls has advanced, so should their testing. Learn about solutions to make it simple and efficient.
Tuesday, April 15 – 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 16 – 3:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 17 – 10:30 a.m.

Test the System, not the Element
Explore the shift in traditional relay testing to a more complete system test. Test the logic of the relay, not the capability of the microprocessor to perform math.
