Stocks in this article: ESE

WATERTOWN, Mass., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Growing demand for reliable electric power across Asia-Pacific is putting the spotlight on existing infrastructure, and underscoring the need for continuous monitoring and maintenance of the power grid and its assets.

Electric power experts from around the world will come together in Seoul, South Korea to discuss the state of the power industry and the delivery of energy throughout the region at ISH 2013: The 18th Annual International Symposium on High Voltage Engineering, from August 25-30, 2013. 

Addressing a critical, and often overlooked, component of the power grid, Dr. Anthony McGrail, Solutions Manager at Doble Engineering Company, will present "Asset Management: Power Transformer Fleet Condition" on Monday, August 26 at the symposium. His presentation will help attendees understand the importance of maintaining and assessing the health of transformers, and highlight best practices for creating intervention plans.

"Delivering consistent, reliable power is contingent on the ability to effectively maintain the power grid infrastructure," said McGrail. "Integrating new technologies and having systems in place to test and predict malfunctions are critically important for markets with growing power systems, like South Korea, and more broadly, the Asia-Pacific region. When the electric power is down, the impact on economic progress can be severe."   

Doble Engineering Company has been a worldwide leader for nearly 100 years in developing the diagnostic test instruments, services and solutions that help utility companies such as Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) and electric power assets manufacturing companies, like Hyundai Heavy Industries, meet escalating electric power needs.  

The pressure on existing power infrastructure is at an all-time high. Energy consumption is increasing at more than double the projected rate in South Korea, according to the Korea Energy Economics Institute -- in part a result of the country's strong economic growth, as reported by the BBC.  All these factors, combined with recent weather-related events, greatly impact the need to have the tools and knowledge to maintain and mange a safe and dependable power grid infrastructure. 

"Economic growth in South Korea is moving incredibly fast, and the demand for safe, reliable power is climbing right alongside," said Mr. Sung Am Kim, General Manager and Head of KEPCO's Substation Team within the Transmission Department a Doble customer for more than 24 years. "We use diagnostic tools like Doble's M4100 Tester and the F-Series Protection testing solutions to adhere to compliance standards, maintain our infrastructure and meet the needs of our customers."

With a century of experience providing industry-leading diagnostic and testing innovation and intelligence, Doble Engineering Company is the most trusted and experienced third-party authority in the electric power industry. Doble Engineering Company's solutions are backed by the broadest and most comprehensive database of historical test data in the world, and gives energy providers unprecedented access to the tools, data and information needed to make educated decisions about the reliability and efficiency of the power grid.
