RTE international will be present at the IPST conference

The 16th International Conference on Power Systems Transients (IPST) will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, from June 12th to 15th, 2023.

This biennial event offers a platform for the exchange of scientific and technical information related to electromagnetic transients in electric power systems. Contributors are sought on all topics related to the study of transient phenomena in electric energy systems. This includes, but is not limited to, computer simulations, transient network analysis studies, and field measurements. As an open conference, it is intended to be a forum for the scientific community involved in all topics related to the study of transient phenomena in electric energy systems.

Grid forming and EMT studies – Technical Workshop co-organized by RTE international and SIEMENS Energy

In this context RTE international is delighted to co-organize a workshop on “Grid forming control and EMT Studies” in collaboration with Siemens Energy prior to the conference. During the event, our team of experts will be sharing valuable insights on the integration of renewable energies into the grid. We cordially invite you to join us and be a part of this enriching experience!
