The biennial South East Asia Protection and Automation Conference (SEAPAC) was hosted 19 – 20 March 2019 at the Star Sydney Hotel in Pyrmont, Australia by the CIGRE Australia B5 Panel.
The goal of this conference held every odd year is to promote discussion and knowledge regarding issues of interest to the industry. It is an excellent forum for both regional and international participants to discuss and share thoughts and views on current industry best practice and emerging technologies.

The conference opening was followed by the Keynote presentation on "Network changes and challenges – Transgrid’s perspective in planning for them" by Gerard Reiter, Executive Manager, Network Planning and Operations, TransGrid, Australia.
The two days conference program included 35 high quality technical papers selected by the technical committee and presented by experts from Australia, Europe and the United States. At the end of each session participants had discussions with the presenters on some topics of interest addressed in the presentations. 
Many papers covered topics related to the integration of distributed energy resources, protection related communications technologies and IEC 61850 standard based applications, testing, inter-substations communications and SCADA interfaces.  
At the end of the first day the participants enjoyed the main networking event – the conference cocktail and dinner.
