CIGRE Study Committees

Study Committee Overview

In 2008, 16 Study Committees (SC) and more than 200 Working Groups (WG) are activated in CIGRE, and more than 2,000 experts in the world are participating in these SCs and WGs for developing the technologies of their concerned fields in power systems.

Study committees investigate the performance of large electric systems. They undertake and coordinate studies that improve electric power systems and in many cases lead to technical innovations in the field.
