The leading forum for developing and learning protection testing techniques

The Australasian Protection Testing Users Group (APTUG) Meeting is a forum for sharing experiences, developing new protection testing techniques and learning from the experiences of others.

The APTUG Meeting provides you the opportunity to:

  • Increase your knowledge on protection relays and testing techniques
  • Take advantage of peer-to-peer collaboration
  • Present or perform practical demonstrations on new or interesting test applications
  • Learn from technical training in testing techniques and test plan creation
  • Share best practice techniques and applications for protection system technologies
  • Discuss recent and future enhancements to Doble hardware and software
  • Provide feedback to Doble for correction of problems and future developments

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS: The success of the meeting depends on having a diverse range of presentations and topics. We are looking for presentations from both new and experienced presenters. Email to submit an abstract or topic idea.

25+ year history

The first Doble user meeting in our region was held 27 years ago in Melbourne. Soon thereafter APTUG was established.
Last year we had 80 attendees from 18 different organizations with 27 different presentations and 3 open discussion sessions.

What will be discussed

You drive the discussion at the 2019 APTUG Meeting. What matters to you, matters to our industry. This meeting is designed to provide a wide range of education options. Here are just some of the topics we will be addressing this year:

  • Protection relays and testing techniques
  • Solve complicated, hard-pressing issues
  • New test application demonstrations
  • Testing techniques and test plan creation
  • Best practices for protection system technologies
  • Users’ experiences and case studies
  • Doble protection testing product road map and improved technologies

This year APTUG and Doble will facilitate a High Voltage Testing training and seminar stream that will run parallel with the Protection Stream. This new format will provide specific training and discussion around testing primary plant, interpreting results and sharing industry experiences.
