The IEEE PES Substations Committee is the professional home for engineers involved in the design and operation of electrical substations used for generation, transmission and distribution. Moreover, committee activities include development of not only industry standards, but also educational material, for instance, technical papers, white papers, presentations, tutorials and panel discussions. Accordingly, the Committee is under the direction of the IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Council.
