CIGRE Türkiye - Third Power Systems Conference

CIGRE Türkiye National Committee’s Power Systems Conference 2022 - one of the most important power systems conferences in Türkiye was held in Ankara October 18-19, 2022. The conference brought power systems sector together: academics, companies, and public representatives gathered to discuss about the present as well as future of the sector.

Ankara - Türkiye
18-19 October 2022


The conference started with an opening ceremony with the opening speech of Chairman of NC of Türkiye, Dr. İzzet Alagöz, which received very high attention of the audience and media. This was followed by “Electricity History of Türkiye” panel, “Wie Forum” and “NGN Forum”, 7 sessions and three Special Sessions organized within the scope of conference. Over 400 delegates attended the opening session. Besides, the sessions, panel and forums, CIGRE Study Committee meetings are conducted during the conference. Power Systems Conference 2022 accepted 35 papers which were presented during the 7 different conference sessions. in addition, accepted papers will be published in TEPES, CIGRE Türkiye NC’s academic magazine.

A survey was organized amongst the conference attendee to validate their awareness of the various activities of CIGRE, NGN, and WiE. The survey results were  discussed in the closing ceremony.

The first conference was organized in 2016, and second in 2018 but 2020 was cancelled due to the global pandemic.

Main Topics

The main topics for the conference papers were all within the score of CIGRE Study Committees’. All the accepted papers are classified in 13 subjects such as C6, C2, B2, A2, A3, B5, C3, B3, B4, C1, C2, C5 and D2.

Key Findings

35 papers were accepted  and presented by the authors during the sessions. The papers are focused on the topics which are aims to solve contemporary problems such as:
