Stocks in this article: ESE

WATERTOWN, Mass., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the primary line of defense for our electric power grid, it's essential to understand and regularly assess the health of circuit breakers in order to ensure the safe, reliable delivery of  power. However, shrinking budgets and demand for increased capacity are putting significant pressure on those operating and maintaining substations and switch-gear assets, making it more challenging than ever to keep circuit breakers operating reliably.

To meet the needs of utility and electric power industry maintenance professionals, Doble Engineering Company will host this year's annual Finepoint Circuit Breaker Test & Maintenance Training Conference, Oct. 7-10, in Atlanta, GA. Doble Engineering Company acquired the conference in December of 2012.

"We want our attendees to walk away with something real, that immediately improves their lives and addresses the day-to-day challenges they face," said Jozef Levi, a speaker at the conference and technical application engineer for circuit breaker and TDR test instruments at Doble Engineering Company. A long-standing leader in the circuit breaker and testing community, Levi holds a U.S. disconnecting switch patent, with special interest in electrical contacts for high voltage circuit breakers and disconnect switches.

Punctuating the conference, two of the region's leading manufacturers, Hitachi HVB, Inc. and Southern States, LLC will also open their factories and provide interactive tours to conference attendees, allowing them to create their own test plans and determine effectiveness.

"It's easy to look past some of the basic components in the electric power system, but maintaining and testing circuit breakers is incredibly important," said Kevin Case, Product Services Manager of Hitachi HVB, Inc.  "We sincerely welcome all the Finepoint attendees, and hope to share what we've learned over the years, providing them with useful information they can take home."

Over the course of five days, the conference will provide extensive, hands-on circuit breaker training, switchgear and substation maintenance, and testing strategies -- all from the industry's foremost experts and all designed for immediate implementation.
