History Of CLAGTEE

The growing demand for electric energy in the Latin-American countries requires a greater quality of service and efficiency in the area of techno-economic operation. This brings the constant need for improvement in the growth planning and the levels of the operation of the electric energy systems. The economic and technical aspects must be taken into consideration, as well as the environmental impact of implantation of new power plants and the need to introduce new technologies, control systems and safety measures.

Gradually a process of integration among the Latin-American countries has emerged, as the electric energy needs are similar, including the generation facilities, for these countries.

Considering the above mentioned points, UNESP - São Paulo State University (Brazil), Valparaiso Catholic University (Chile) and National University of Mar del Plata (Argentina) have joined forces in order to create a forum that permits a valuable exchange of experiences concerning the methodology for the analysis of operation, planning, and the introduction of new technologies that could contribute to the improvement of the electric energy generation and transmission systems. This has become a reality with the creation of these Latin-American congresses, which take place in the distinct cities of the Latin-American countries.

The first Latin American Congress on Generation, Transmission and Distribution was held in 1993, and organized in partnership with the Electrical Engineering Department of the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaiso (Chile), the Electrical Engineering Department of the Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata (Argentina) and the Electrical and Energy Departments of the Universidad Estadual Paulista (Brasil). Its objective is to open a space where academia and the industrial world can interchange experiences and knowledge related to the operation of electrical energy projects on generation, transmission and distribution.
