Thousands of energy industry experts have met in Paris between August 27-31 at CIGRE 2018 to share ideas and collaborate.
CIGRE is an international non-profit organisation for promoting collaboration on a national and international level. Experts from over 100 countries come together to share and join forces in order to improve existing systems and build the electrical power systems of the future, from generation to distribution.
This year over 10,000 visitors attended, including 3,800 delegates and 300 exhibitors. This was an increase on the 2016 session where 3,200 delegates attended with 250 exhibitors.
It is the largest event ever organised in Europe for power system experts and is held every two years in Paris at the Palais des Congrès. The program included technical meetings, tutorials, technical exhibitions, and social events over a period of five days.
The paper „Full-scope simulation of grid-connected microgrids” by Robert Gaal and dr. Attila Kovacs was accepted for publication, and focused on the area of distributed renewal energy generation, and the operational aspects of microgrids. The publication was also presented in the Poster Session of the conference, where visitors had the opportunity for professional consultations with the authors personally.
„We are very pleased that, despite the strict professional-scientific pre-qualification process, we were selected to the Hungarian delegation and contributed to the scientific examination of one of the most exciting topics of research and development.” – said dr. Attila Kovács, Managing Director of Astron Informatics Ltd.
