Cigré, the forum for electrical innovations

January 2013

CIGRE Monthly Newsletter

Dear Colleague, Dear Member,

I am pleased to welcome you to this January 2013 issue of the Newsletter. As we enter in a new year, there is a continued sense of optimism that we will continue to demonstrate a strong sense of collaboration and belonging at CIGRE Association.

Please note that the notification to authors for acceptance of the Paper proposals for the Auckland Symposium has been postponed to the end of January, instead of 30th December as initially scheduled. Thank you for your patience.

SC B4 has finalized a very important work, managed by WG B4-52, concerning a feasibility study on HVDC grids. We have been waiting so long for a sound analysis of this question that I cannot resist to put this work at the center of our January 2013 newletter, even if the presentation in Electra, and the corresponding Technical Brochure will not be available until April.  Note that 5 SC B4 WG are continuing the work to further define the requirements for the creation of HVDC Grids.                                                                   

Wishing you a wonderful 2013,

François Meslier

CIGRE Secretary General
