Harnessing Innovation: Surge Arrester Applications Take Center Stage at INMR WORLD CONGRESS 2023
Updated: Sep 10
The INMR WORLD CONGRESS has long been recognized as a pivotal platform for experts and professionals in the field of power transmission and distribution. This biennial event rotates its host city, covering Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The forthcoming congress in Bangkok, Thailand, from November 12-15, 2023, promises an enriching experience, offering over 100 technical presentations across a myriad of topics. However, one area that promises to captivate attention is the application of surge arresters, a field experiencing rapid advancement and innovation.
As the chairman for the SESSION 3: Technology & Service Experience in Application of Surge Arresters, I can assure you that this year's lineup is second to none. We have gone to great lengths to secure top-tier speakers who will discuss various facets of surge arrester technology.
Their expertise spans 3 key categories:
Line Surge Arresters for Overhead Lines: Learn about the most recent developments in enhancing the resilience and effectiveness of overhead lines using reliable line surge arresters.
Cross-functional Topics on Conventional Applications: Dive into the characteristics of Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV) and the specifics related to Station and Distribution Class applications.
Monitoring and Diagnostics for Condition Assessment: Gain valuable insights into the methods and technologies that can assess and extend the operational lifespan of surge arresters.
What sets this congress apart is not just its high calibre of speakers, but also the breadth of topics that will be covered. You'll have a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of surge arrester technology while also broadening your horizons in the wider field of power transmission and distribution.
To complement the technical sessions, the PRODUCT & TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION will run in parallel, showcasing the most recent innovations in key network components and testing services. It’s a ‘hands-on’ experience where you can engage directly with experts from leading international suppliers.
So whether you are an engineer, an asset manager, a consultant, or someone intrigued by the continually evolving landscape of power systems, this congress is an invaluable opportunity for professional development and networking.
Mark your calendars for November 12-15 and make sure you join us at the INMR WORLD CONGRESS in Bangkok for an experience that promises to electrify your understanding of surge arrester technology!
