In the year of 1964, Proceedings of the Chinese Society for Electrical Engineerin g ( is named Proceedings of the CSEE for short) was started its publication. It is a nation-level journal and an authoritatively academic journal in the sphere of electrical engineering, being distributed home and abroad. The journal is administered by China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), sponsored by the Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering (society established in 1934) and undertaken by China Electric Power Research Institute for edit and publication. Proceedings of the CSEE mainly reports the new development in theoretics, method, technique and new achievements in the area of power system and automation, power generation and power engineering, electric machinery & theoretical electrotechonlogy , high voltage engineering and power transmission and distribution, communication and electricity market. Its main readers are including researchers and engineers in the fields of power system and electrical equipment manufacture as well as the teachers and students in universities and colleges.
Proceedings of the CSEE is the core journal of many principal retrieval systems such as Engineering Index (EI), Scientific Abstracts (SA), Abstract Journal (AJ), Zentralblatt Math (ZM) as well as other related databases, thus Proceedings of the CSEE is an influential journal home and abroad. .
Proceedings of the CSEE is being awarded within top 100 outstanding Academic Journals of China for six years, as well as the top one in domestic periodical journals in power engineering and electric power engineering. During 2006 to 2009, it is recognized as one of the perfect periodicals by CAST for four successive times. And in 2005, it received the National Award for 100 Kinds of Key Journals.
In 2007 and 2008, there are respectively one and two papers from Proceedings of the CSEE selected as One Hundred Excellent Chinese Academic Papers with the Most Influence.
