CIGRE's Bilingual Bimonthly Journal for Power System Professionals
Our magazine provides information on the results or the progress of the technical activities of CIGRE, on the life of Association and the events organized. 6 issues are published per year (from February to October).
Part of the membership package, Electra is distributed worldwide to the CIGRE community, and may be downloaded for free by all CIGRE members.
Electra articles (summaries of the CIGRE Technical Brochures) are available on e-CIGRE for members and non-members. The articles published more than 3 years ago are free for everyone.
In 2020 Electra will move from a PDF based publication to a full digital interface. As part of the transition, PDF editions are temporarily available here, for all visitors to e-cigre.
