InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA) is set to host PowerTest 2011, February 21-24, 2011 in Washington, D.C. at the Hyatt Regency, Crystal City.

PowerTest 2011 features experts and technical field specialists speaking on safety, reliability, equipment, codes and inspections, and utility transmission and distribution.

Lanny Floyd, PE, CSP, CMRP, fellow of IEEE, and principal consultant of Electrical Safety & Technology at DuPont, is this year’s keynote speaker. His address, From the Brink of Disaster – Lessons for Electrical Safety and Reliability, will recall high profile disasters, the lessons learned, and their impact on today’s codes, standards and regulations.

“NETA’s PowerTest is unique in providing a variety of engaging forums and opportunities for industry professionals of all levels to meet and talk with field professionals, engineers, managers, and reliability and safety leaders. Interact with field-experienced technicians who have hands-on knowledge that provides real-world problem solving solutions,” reads the association’s statement.

Attendees can participate in the five track presentations, interactive panel sessions, symposium, a new product forum, and the PowerTest tradeshow, which features more than 100 vendors. As well, there will be 12 post-conference seminars to provide more in-depth discussion to subject-specific topics.

Pre-conference events kick off Sunday February 21, with the Megger 2011 Best Practices Substation Seminar, followed by a tour of the Nation’s Capitol Hill by way of a guided pub-crawl.
