In line with the progress made in digitalizing Electra, I am very pleased to announce that the latest October edition of CSE is now in digital format.  It can be viewed on any platform and downloads of papers into .pdf make it possible for readers to save the papers on their devices for full mobility. 

CSE edition 22 published in October contains interesting and valuable papers on transmission line design including erection methods and fittings for high temperature conductors.  These topics are not common in literature and should prove very valuable to utilities, design engineers and manufacturers.  As usual the authors are from all areas of expertise including utilities, academia, and manufacturers. 

There is a special edition to be published in December covering the 16 “best of” papers from the recent Paris session.  These papers are recommended by the respective study committees and selected by the Editorial Board.  As such the papers have been thoroughly reviewed in the paper submission process for the Session, as well as being hand-picked by experts in the field.

The topics covered by the “best of” papers are of interest to all in the industry.  These include:

  • Reliability surveys of equipment and HVDC systems
  • Operation of the network with high inverter-based resource penetration
  • System strength, inertia, and network loss factors
  • Energy management for microgrids.
  • Dynamic current rating for cables,
  • Energy systems study (Glasgow)
  • Digitalization for substation design, planning, construction, and operation.
  • Evolution of maintenance practices
