The Evolution and Future of Networking Time Synchronization in Power Utilities

Did you miss our online presentation at the UTC Telecom & Technology virtual event on August 31? Bernard and Emmanuel shared insights on "The Evolution and Future of Networking Time Synchronization in Power Utilities”.

Synchronization across Wide Area Networks has become a challenge for the Power Utility industry. Especially when the reasons for power interrupts or blackouts must be analyzed. But also protection, automation, and control need accurate time references. This presentation will discuss the evolution of clocking, from separate clock lines in synchronized serial networks, walking through TDM synchronization to future time synchronization protocols like IEEE1588. We will explain the IEEE1588 key principles and the differences between the profiles that are currently in use along with best practices. Emerging measurement applications require an absolute accuracy of 1 microsecond or better. A terrestrial clocking distribution network is necessary to complement satellite-based systems.

All networks carry information.
Some networks carry it exactly the way you want.
