Izolyator’s Active Participation in the CIGRE e-Session 2020
From August 24 to September 3, 2020 Izolyator took an active part in the CIGRE e-session 2020.
The International Council on Large Electric Systems (French: Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques, CIGRÉ) is the largest international non-profit Association for promoting collaboration with experts from all around the world by sharing knowledge and joining forces to improve electric power systems.
Founded in 1921 in France and headquartered in Paris CIGRE is one of the most authoritative and significant international associations which unites scientists and power engineers from all over the world and makes significant impact on the strategy of the electricity industry in many countries.
The mission of CIGRE as pertains to ts Charter is to coordinate research, scientific knowledge and practical experience sharing on issues of power networks operation. The issues of design, creation and operation of high-voltage equipment, grids planning and operation, implementation of new technologies for data mining and processing and control systems are in the spotlight.
CIGRE activities shape the strategic vision of the power network development needed for selection of energy policy and are closely tied with the vector of scientific and technical progress that defines key directions of integration processes.
Biannual session is a central event in the activity of the CIGRE. The key task of the session is technical knowledge and information sharing between engineering community, scientists and technical specialists of all countries in regard to high-voltage power generation and transmission.
Izolyator plant representatives and members of the CIGRE National Study Committee D1 ‘Materials and Emerging Test Techniques’ remotely participated in the research committee’s webinars, training seminars and workshops, which were held in accordance with the technical program of the Session.
Online broadcasts of presentations and reports from the CIGRE e-session 2020 were held in the conference hall of Izolyator plant.

The key topics of discussion in the D1 committee were:
- testing, monitoring and diagnostics, including the reliability of control and measuring equipment and systems for testing, monitoring and diagnostics;
- functional properties and degradation of insulating materials, including materials that have a lower impact on the environment during production, operation and disposal;
- insulation systems of modern components: materials subject to high loads: field density, magnetic flux, electric current and frequency; experience and requirements to new test procedures and standards.
