Electricity is the life blood of modern society. Any interruption to its supply can have a huge impact on individuals, businesses and communities. So the transmission and distribution (T&D) sector, and the energy industry as a whole, must devote extensive resources into trying to avoid power supply disruptions. Will your purchased components stand up to reality? With the world of energy undergoing significant change, it’s never been more important to minimize risk and stay ahead. On this topic KEMA Laboratories organizes together with PennWell a Webinar on November 3. This webinar, calling on the results from 20 years of testing data, reviews component failure rates to see how certified testing helps utilities reduce the risk of blackouts.

Take aways:

  • Malfunctioning equipment often causes outages
  • Requiring certified equipment minimizes your risk
  • Only laboratories can provide the real challenges to your equipment when meeting system distress; computers cannot
  • A quarter of new equipment fails to pass laboratory tests
