CIGRE UK B5 liaison meeting
The purpose of the meeting, led by UK Regular Member John Wright, is to provide a high-level overview of the ongoing activities in CIGRE related to Protection & Automation. Technical Brochures published in the last year will be highlighted, along with a status update on all of the active B5 Working Groups where the UK has an interest. You will also hear about the latest new work items approved by the B5 Study Committee during the Paris e-session, and to provide feedback on possible future work items that could be proposed in the future.

B5 Study Committee Mission, Technology & Scope
To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of protection and automation. To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesizing state-of-the-art practices and developing recommendations.
Technological field of activity
Power system protection, substation control and automation, remote control systems and equipment, metering systems and equipment.
Within its technical field of activity, Study Committee B5 addresses topics throughout the asset management life-cycle phases; from conception, through research, development, design, production, deployment, operation, and end-of life. At all stages, technical, safety, economic, environmental and social aspects are addressed as well as interactions with, and integration into, the evolving power system and the environment. All aspects of performance, specification, testing and the application of testing techniques are within scope, with a specific focus on the impact of changing interactions and demands due to evolution of the power system. Life cycle assessment techniques, risk management techniques, education and training are also important aspects.
Within this framework additional specific areas of attention include:
- Theory, principles and concepts, functionality, technological development, design, performance and application of materials, efficiency.
- Manufacturing, quality assurance, application guidance, planning, routing and location, construction, erection, installation.
- Reliability, availability, dependability, maintainability and maintenance, service, condition monitoring, diagnostics, restoration, repair, loading, upgrading, uprating.
- Refurbishment, re-use/re-deployment, deterioration, dismantling, disposal.
