APAP is rightfully an international conference, with strong representation from attendees around the world. 
Established in 2004, APAP is an ideal place for engineers and researchers in the areas of station automation, protection and control in power system. The main purpose of this conference is to provide splendid opportunities for the participants to share knowledge, experience and new ideas. 
APAP goes further with many contributions from industries to discuss their implementations and applications, therefore it brings together researchers from academia and industry working in all areas of electrical engineering. 


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers on all aspects of the advanced protection and automation technology in Power System including but not limited to the following technical areas: 

  • ∙ Protection and Control IEDs 
  • ∙ Microgrid, Smart Grid 
  • ∙ Distribution Automation 
  • ∙ Substation Automation 
  • ∙ HVDC Protection & Control 
  • ∙ Wide Area Protection & Control 
  • ∙ Railway Power System Protection & Control 
  • ∙ Power System Analysis & Operation 
  • ∙ Electric Safety, etc.

What is Industry Special Session 

Industry special session is one of the highlights of the APAP 2017, designed to provide a forum for industry professionals to promote, share and discuss their various practical issues and developments. Industry professionals are invited to join in the session by submitting 1 or 2 page long synopsis in their own format. Note that this special session does not require submission of full papers but the approved synopses will be included in the proceedings with contributors’ consent.

Industry Special Session(ISS) is intended to provide a forum for industry engineers (including utility engineers) to share their real experience and issues regarding the power system protection and automation through intensive discussion. In order to lessen the burden of industry engineers in writing a technical paper, we invented “Industry Contribution” as a preparation for ISS.

Industry engineers are encouraged to bring out their field experience on R&D, testing, commissioning, planning, problem-solving, etc. to invoke discussions among participants. Introduction of new technology, new idea and new product is also welcome.

No limitations for pages and format. Only one to two page-long document in a free format will be enough (please refer to samples below). It will be included in the proceedings of APAP2017 as it is with no review.

After classified according to the subject, industry special session (ISS) will be organized into oral session. For an oral presentation, 2 to 5 minutes are alloted to each presentation and after all presentation in each subject, an intensive discussion will follow
