"Evolution of the Power System to Accelerate Electrification"

2023 CIGRE Canada Conference & Exhibition - Call for papers


The 2023 XVth Annual CIGRE Canada Conference on Power Systems will bring together the key players in the electric power systems sector: business leaders, system operators, manufacturers, engineers, policy makers, regulators and academics. The conference is a unique forum to share exciting new research, to raise issues and awareness, to discuss future directions, and to network with leading professionals.


Topics of special interest:


Papers are invited on all topics of interest falling within the conference theme:


Transformation and impact of accelerated electrification on the T&D system


  • Use of smart sensors
  • Use of real time rating tools
  • Retrofit critical lines with "smart" wires
  • Use of distributed sensing tools along T-assets
  • Thermal performance of cable systems
  • Impact on loading pattern changes to transformer assets
  • Application of rapid monitoring tools


Challenges to meet these rapid electrification needs


  • Lack of visibility into user’s EV adoption
  • Impact of voltage and load conditions of existing pole-top transformers and other equipment infrastructure
  • Future challenges with "Big data how are utilities coping"
  • Incorporating bi-directional power flow
  • Climate change impacts on the power system


Dynamics of distributed generation resources

  • Distributed generation
  • Power quality impact on the grid
  • Role of battery/fuel cells, wind, solar, hydrogen
  • Operation/protection of renewable energy systems, such as hybrid battery and solar systems (microgrid), involve very smart/sophisticated control systems


Business impacts from accelerated electrification


  • How can Asset owners cost out the charging stations?
  • Is there a need to develop governing regulations?
  • Increased reliability expectations
  • Energy as an essential service demands high system resilience
  • Impact of rising power supply equipment cost and supply chain issues
  • Emerging technology for future grid


Important Dates:


  • April 3, 2023 Deadline for submission of abstracts (via website)
  • April 21, 2023 Notification of acceptance. Registration Opens
  • June 30, 2023 Deadline of submission of final papers
