SGTech Week 2023

ALBEDO will participate in this annual event about the electricity business that is driving grid innovation under increased regulatory pressure, intense cybersecurity threat, and rapidly rising demand for renewables integration.


Meet us in Amsterdam 

The 4th annual SGTech Week 2023 brings together 150+ utility Substation, SCADA System, Utility Telecom and Cybersecurity colleagues, for a review of the latest smart grid implementation projects and innovation roadmaps. The week-long programme combines a series of Standardisation workshops, with C’level plenary sessions, techno-commercial case-study presentations, technology innovation panel debates,  and intimate end-user roundtable discussions, to drive awareness of recent successes and setbacks as well as stimulate new ideas to drive the deployment of the smart grid further faster.

Smart Grid Technical Innovation Conference & Exhibition

The multi-track format enables participants to fully immerse in the technical domain that is most relevant to their day-to-day responsibilities, whilst being able to pick and choose sessions from other tracks to enhance their working knowledge of other domains. By bringing multiple smart grid technical teams together under one roof, IT-OT integration is not only explored, it is facilitated and promoted to help drive the next phase of smart grid deployments with greater ease.

Monday 20th March 2023

The week begins with a practical workshop focused on one of the most crucial IEC standards for the smart grid: IEC 61850 for Substation Automation. Led by Christoph Brunner, Convenor of TC57 WG10, this is a great opportunity to get up to speed with the latest evolutions and applications of the standard.

Tuesday 21st to Thursday 23rd March 2023

The main conference opens with a morning of plenary sessions addressing the big macro issues facing the power grid, including the Energy Transition, Geopolitical pressures, Regulatory frameworks, Cybersecurity threats, and Workforce development demands. It then breaks into 3 technical tracks providing utility-driven reviews of the latest innovation projects and grid deployments in the areas of: Digital Substations, SCADA and Control Rooms, and Utility Telecom. 40+ utilities will share their lessons learnt from recent implementations and their roadmaps for the future to support a much faster pace of renewables integration to ensure energy security.

Net.Time Ω

Net.Time Omega is a PTP/NTP over PRP clock allows for multiple configurations to meet the timing demands of any industry, including data centers, stock exchange, broadcast, IoT, power utilities, or air traffic control. The result is always a reliable and fault-tolerant solution to loss of reference, network outages and power failures. Simultaneously Net.Time ω simplifies the migration to PTP without abandoning investments in NTP, IRIG-B or BITS, facilitating on this way the integration, interaction/translation of all types of signals, profiles or protocols.

xGenius is an advanced tester with a large capacitive screen suitable for laboratory and field use. The device is capable of testing Ethernet/IP networks up to 10Gb/s while supporting Sync-E/PTP protocols with Master/Slave emulation. Performance and quality tests can be performed on all opt/elect interfaces including GbE/T1/E1/E0/C37.94 and Datacom. The GPS-assisted one-way delay is good for substation maintenance, and it has a built-in Rubidium oscillator to continue working perfectly in holdover mode.
