Join Hitachi ABB Power Grids at the CIGRE e-session 2020

August 24 to September 3

The CIGRE e-session 2020 replaces the signature event in Paris which will be held in August 2021. This unprecedented online event will offer a vast wealth of power system expertise, digitally shared from across the global CIGRE community, and Hitachi ABB Power Grids plays an active role in many of the sessions. Our contributions cover numerous subjects in areas such as Transformers, High Voltage Equipment and new materials, substations, HVDC, FACTS, protection and communication technologies. We also present new methods and algorithms for system expansion planning and operation in transmission systems and in active distribution systems, and visionary concepts of smarter, stronger and greener future power systems. In parallel to paper presentations, our experts participate in tutorials and workshops, study committee management meetings and in working group meetings all over the week. Meet some of our experts here, and read about our papers.
