2nd SEERC Workshop - Virtual Meeting - CIGRE

Resilience of Electrical Grids: “State of Art, Best Practices and Operational Aspects"
Virtual Meeting - January 26, 2021 (10.00-13.00)

Objective and topics

Unexpected extreme events ranging from cyber-security attacks, adverse weather conditions and other natural disasters, combined with changes in power system and generation technology, consumer behavior, and energy policy targets to decarbonize the electrical sector, increasingly impose serious risks to electric generation, transmission, and distribution systems. In proactive management of such risks and to assure a continuous, reliable, and affordable supply of energy, power transmission and distribution system operators are continuously engaged in development and deployment of innovative technologies that can help ensure a higher resilience of their systems during such events.

The 1st SEERC Workshop “Resilience of Electrical Grid: Events and Solutions” Resilience of Electrical Power and Energy Networks” has been held at the University of Roma “La Sapienza” on January 26, 2018 and concerned general aspects of electrical resilience from SEERC prospective.


The 2nd SEERC Workshop will take place in the same day as in 2018 but in virtual mode, considering the worldwide pandemic situation. This event will be mainly devoted to “State of Art, Best Practices and Operational Aspects” of Electrical Resilience.

The workshop is devoted to electrical community, engineers, and researchers, to present their findings, research and experiences in the field lying within, but not limited to, the following topics (medium and high voltages):

  • Operational aspects of resilience
  • Critical infrastructure resilience to extreme events
  • Current system planning methods and asset management standards used for power system infrastructure investments by system operators
  • Effects of adverse weather conditions and other natural disasters on electrical systems
  • Cyber-security attacks and power grid resilience
  • Prevention, recovery, and survivability of electrical systems in case of extreme events
  • Innovations in drafting standards, construction guidelines, maintenance routines, inspection procedures, and recovery practices of electrical systems
  • Enhanced resilience through energy storage deployment and microgrids
  • Emergency response and early warning technologies for electrical resilience
