Aug 22, 2017

About one hundred and fifty people from over 20 countries participated the colloquium. The colloquium is co-organized by CIGRE Study Committee A1- Rotating Electrical Machines and Chinese National Committee of CIGRE and supported by Harbin Research Institute of Large Electrical Machinery and Guangdong M&C Electric Power Co., Ltd.

25 experts from 9 countries made speeches on their respective expertise at the colloquium. Reports delivered at the colloquium consist of two parts--invited papers and members' contribution. All the reports showed the latest developments on rotating electrical machines not only in China but also across the world. In the meeting duration, a technical visit to the plants of Guangdong M&C Electric Power Co., Ltd. and underground of the Three Gorges Hub Project is organized.

The colloquium is convened in conjunction with a series of meetings of CIGRE Study Committee A1 and its four Advisory Committees.
