SEPOPE is the international forum for technical and scientific discussions on planning and operation of electrical power systems

The XIII SEPOPE – Symposium of Specialists in Electric Operational and Expansion Planning, sponsored by CIGRÉ-Brazil and organized by FURNAS, will take place in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil, in May 2014. SEPOPE, which takes place every two years in interesting cities of Brazil, has become a truly international forum for technical and scientific discussions on planning and operation of electrical power systems.

SEPOPE preferential subjects are always in tune with the relevant issues in the international electrical power systems scenario, embracing selected topics from all six CIGRÉ Study Committees on Power Systems (C1 to C6), though the major focus remains on subjects mostly associated with C1 (Planning) and C2 (Operation and Control).

Topics of interest include means to prevent blackouts and reducing their impact; advances in the use of synchronized phasor measurements, the impact on the power grid from renewable sources and distributed generation, integration of wind generation to interconnected systems, regulatory and energy market issues; as well as methodologies for generation/transmission expansion planning. System-wide phenomena due to penetration of electronic and harmonic loads are also topics of interest. The reduction in utilities revenue due to recent changes in laws for the renewal of licenses for generation and transmission of electricity are also an important subject for the XIII SEPOPE.

The ample scope and relevance of the issues to be discussed in the XIII SEPOPE will provide a valuable opportunity for extended learning and interchange among professionals from utilities, regulatory boards, planning agencies and system operators, manufacturers, universities, consultants and research centers.

The Technical Committee therefore urges contributors to examine the preferential subjects listed in this folder and submit exciting, high-quality papers.

The date and place for our next meeting are already established: May 2014, in Foz do Iguassu. See you all there!
