Building on the major success of the German User Meeting (now in its 25th year) and also the success of the first Saudi User Meeting in 2017, we are excited to invite you to the second Saudi User Meeting.

We are pleased to bring together renowned experts from our own organization and other organizations to meet, share and learn about the latest developments in power equipment diagnostics, monitoring and protection testing. Up to date real life case studies will deliver accurate accounts of what is happening in the industry. This will help empower the participants to perform condition assessment in accordance with the requirements and possibilities of the hour.

The topics covered in the Saudi User Meeting are focused on providing detailed technical explanations and practical demonstrations (hands-on sessions) of the latest diagnostic techniques, both on-line and off-line, with the supporting knowledge and examples of recent case histories to substantiate the benefits of these approaches.

The following assets will be discussed:

  • Power Transformers
  • Instrument Transformers
  • Rotating Electric Machines
  • GIS and Cables
  • Circuit breakers
  • Protection relays (including IEC 61850 implications and methodology)

To enhance the opportunity for all participants to share knowledge and learn, questions and discussion are encouraged.
