Aging HV Infrastructure & Managing Reliability
A myriad of options are available for managing the growing number of aging power grid assets – maintain, repair, retrofit and upgrade, or replace? Each option has trade-offs for risk and reliability. Managing that “universe of risk” is something that must be carefully planned, managed, and executed to maintain and improve system reliability.  Attend this webinar to learn how to effectively find, assess, and mitigate high voltage risk in your fleet, and ultimately improve system reliability.

Grid Upgrades – A Tale of Two Substations
Managing substation projects with ease sounds like an oxy-moron. Whether it’s an upgrade of an existing (brownfield) switchyard or the birth of a (greenfield) substation, decision, equipment, resources, and asset management challenges do not need to be doomed for the decision-making “death spiral” when proper planning and project management is taken into account. Attend this webinar to learn how to avoid the headaches, mishaps, and heartburn associated with grid upgrade projects as two types of substation success stories are studied.

Roadmap to Implementing Condition-Based Maintenance
Most organization want to do it, but few know where or how to start – implementing condition-based maintenance (CBM). How do you get started? When do you start? Who should be involved? It’s the chicken and egg all over – do I start with a few critical assets or jump in with both feet and phase all in assets in as we buy them?  Attend this webinar for a roadmap you can use as a set of guidelines to successfully implement a CBM program and benefit from its many advantages.
