CIGRE continues to advertise selected papers on LinkedIn and Twitter feeds allowing access to the papers from your device wherever you are and whenever you wish to read it.

In this edition we are proud to publish 14 excellent papers that have been selected as the best papers from the Cairns Symposium (11) and one paper each from the Southern African, Sendai and Canadian conferences/ colloquia. These papers have all undergone a rigorous peer review process by international experts. They have also been updated where necessary by the authors. 

Topics in this edition vary across all the Study Committee scopes. This covers, equipment, operations, generation types, protection and so on. There is therefore information of interest for all engineers, designers and operators as well as manufacturers in this edition. Once again the application of technology with regard to integration of inverter based resources and alternatives to fossil fuels are prominent.

As can be seen from the above the papers are all extremely relevant covering a wide range of topics. The authors should be proud that their papers have not only been selected to be presented at the various forums but that they have been selected as the best paper in the category. This is a rare achievement.
