2016 European User’s Group Meeting

2016 European User’s Group Meeting

RTDS Technologies is excited to be bringing our popular User’s Group Meeting back to Europe! The 2016 European UGM will take place September 15 & 16 in Glasgow, Scotland. Hosted by the University of Strathclyde, the meeting will take place in their state-of-the-art Technology and Innovation Centre and will feature a tour of the innovative Power Networks Demonstration Centre.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with other users of the RTDS Simulator, explore new applications and stay informed on new developments. The event is open to all users and power industry colleagues who are interested in real time digital power system simulation.
