The Australian National Committee of CIGRE and the B5 Protection & Automation Panel is pleased to offer opportunities to present papers for the sixth SEAPAC – South East Asia Protection Automation & Control.

SEAPAC brings together the leading expertise in the protection and automation fields across Australia, New Zealand and the South East Asia region.

Aim of Conference
CIGRE B5 Protection & Automation Panel’s principle objective is the ongoing development of fundamental knowledge and skills for application, design and operation of the substation and power system protection, control, metering, condition monitoring equipment and associated interfaces to primary plant, SCADA and telecommunication systems.
SEAPAC has been specifically created as the only protection and automation specific conference in the region providing unique opportunities for the sharing of local knowledge and international networking.
Traditional protection and control systems is a key topic for the conference as the most significant portion of the existing infrastructure and experience.
There is also increasing pressure on utilities to provide ever more reliable and robust electricity supply to the consumer under tight regulatory requirements with Smart Grid adding new operational constraints and flexibility requirements. With many IEC 61 850 installations in Australia and New Zealand, SEAPAC will particularly be an opportunity to discuss the benefits and strategies for implementation of this technology.
The scope of the conference provides wide opportunity to discuss project strategies , justification, implementation and project management. Experiences as well as design objectives and solutions for green field projects, brown field developments through to full life cycle management of the asset. Projects encompassing direct equipment replacements through to complete technology shifts will be of interest.
SEAPAC attracts the full spectrum of specialists in the areas of protection, telecommunication, SCADA, telecommunications and asset management. Asset owners, vendors, consultants and education and service provider organizations will be key contributors to the conference.
Attendance has been well over 100 delegates at each session from all areas of the power and associated industries since 2007.
