CETECOM to host Smart Grid EMC seminar

CETECOM, in conjunction with The Bit Bazaar LLC, will host a seminar on harmonizing Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Compliance Standards

(PresseBox) (Essen/Milpitas, USA, ) CETECOM, the premiere wireless test and certification lab, in conjunction with The Bit Bazaar LLC, announced that it will be hosting a technical seminar on smart grid EMC standards harmonization. This event is part of The Bit Bazaar's Smart Grid Educational Seminar Series.

Jerry Ramie, founder of ARC Technical Resources, Inc., will be conducting the training on Wednesday, November 5, 2014. The live event begins at 12:30 PM (Pacific Time) in CETECOM's Silicon Valley office at 411 Dixon Landing Road, Milpitas, CA.

"Cellular devices operating above 1 GHz are widely used," explained Maan Ghanma, CEO of CETECOM Inc. "Since these devices may become RF hazards, expanded immunity and interoperability testing is necessary for utility networking and communications equipment. Standards like NIST IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 can address conducted, radiated, magnetic fields, ESD, EFT and surge."

"Smart grid is modernizing the power grid by balancing the supply and demand of electricity," added Gary Sorkin, Business Development Manager for CETECOM. "By improving reliability and efficiency, the global smart grid market is projected to grow 28.7% CAGR to $80.6 billion in 2016. The CETECOM Group's comprehensive service portfolio of compliance and regulatory testing for energy technologies (including photovoltaic), batteries and M2M, can be a valuable resource to our partners."
