2018 International Conference on Power System Technology

Welcome to POWERCON2018

The POWERCON brand was co-initiated by CSEE (Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering) and IEEE PES (IEEE Power & Energy Society). This biennial conference started in 1998 in Beijing, China. The subsequent venues were Perth, Australia, in 2000; Kunming, China, in 2002; Singapore in 2004; Chongqing, China in 2006; New Delhi, India in 2008; Hangzhou, China in 2010; Auckland, New Zealand in 2012; Chengdu, China in 2014; and Wollongong, Australia in 2016. POWERCON2018 will be held in Guangzhou, China on 246-268 OctoberNovember, 2018.

POWERCON2018, the 11th in the series, will mainly provide a large forum for the practicing engineers, scholars, researchers and graduate students to meet together to discuss various issues and share the latest developments in electric power engineering and power system technology. The conference will focus on smart grid, UHV transmission, wide area interconnections, distributed generation, renewable energy generation and its integration into power systems, energy storage, energy saving and emission reduction.
