COLUMBUS, Ohio—The third Certification in Field Reliability Operations Conference will take place August 25-27 in Columbus, Ohio. The conference brings together leading industry experts and thought leaders to discuss Predictive Maintenance Strategies, Best Overhead-Distribution Field-Reliability Practices, and the latest Approaches for Reducing Outage Frequency and Duration.

“This is the utility industry’s most insightful conference on the topic of improving distribution reliability,” stated conference speaker John Lauletta of Exacter, Inc. “It’s truly an interactive event where attendees will learn about some of the most innovative strategies and approaches being applied around the country. And this year’s speakers will have a lot of great information to share.”

The keynote speaker will be Paul Feldman, Board Chairman of Midwest ISO, who will share high-level strategic insights on reliability planning and preparation for Smart Grid and the role of field-level reliability approaches.

Electrical Engineering professors from The Ohio State University, Dr. Stephen Sebo and Dr. Don Kasten, will share highlights from their research on the field forensics of why and how electrical line components fail. They will include demonstrations at The Ohio State University High-Voltage Laboratory to highlight examples of failing equipment.

Standards Engineer Jim Johnston from Portland General Electric will provide an IOU perspective on approaches, strategies, and technologies being applied in the field to impact reliability indices.

Nelson Bingel, Vice President of Engineering at Osmose Utilities Services, Inc., will share the national view on total line-to-ground maintenance planning.

Finally, Exacter President John Lauletta will lead a discussion on The Viability of Predictive Maintenance Strategies vs. Run-to-Failure Strategies.
