The first DTEC held in Perth in 2010 was well received with over 200 people participating. The second DTEC aims to build on the successful first conference by providing an opportunity for:
- Earthing specialists to present their recent experiences and the latest advances;
- Engineers to publish peer reviewed technical papers in conjunction with Engineers Australia, IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES), and the Electric Energy Society of Australia (EESA);
- Engineers to give less formal presentations covering topics such as technically challenging design, applications of tools/methods, report on an incident of wider interest, provide an update of an R & D project, and introduce new tools/materials with supporting engineering;
- Asset owners, regulators, educators, and interested engineers to increase awareness of issues significant in the field and discuss how they are being handled;
- Earthing practitioners, past earthing course attendees, and people new to the field to get together and share experiences;
Suppliers and consultants to showcase their capabilities and products.
