  • Electricity + Control Magazine

    One of the premier engineering publications in Africa, Electricity+Control has been in existence for 29 years. Written for the engineer – by the engineer – the magazine publishes innovative, technical articles that provide solutions to many of the engineering challenges that exist in measurement, automation, control and energy management.

    Electricity+Control is a platform for sharing knowledge, experience and information, often in the form of industry case studies, with a focus on ‘energy and information’ and input from authors who are experts in their field. The magazine has access to a wide range of specialists in sensors, transducers, flow, level and pressure measurement, drives, motors, transformers, control systems, electrical protection and safety – all of which apply to maintaining industrial plant and substations.

    Electricity+Control focuses strongly on energy and enviroFiciency, carrying articles on initiatives such as cogeneration, photovoltaics, wind energy, hydro power, and many more. The magazine also covers topics that include industrial plant efficiency, electrical protection and safety, control systems in industry, automation in production and lightning protection.

    In addition, it features in-depth technical articles on drives and motors, standby and back-up, sensors and control systems, and safety in hazardous areas. Tansformers and efficiency in substations are also covered, as are maintenance, temperature measurement, level measurement and flow measurement in industrial plant.

    While the core of the publication is in energy and industrial plant and process, Electricity+Control also focuses on new technologies, including IT. The magazine’s authors are experts in their fields, which include the diverse energy sectors in Africa, smart technologies, artificial intelligence, and the new world of energy.

    While South Africa’s energy generation shortfall is examined within the context of various ways to alleviate the situation, Electricity+Control covers the energy ecosystem across the continent. Africa’s energy use and development varies from country to country, providing a platform for the magazine to examine how various power projects and infrastructure investments are lighting up the dark continent.

    With power generation forming the foundation of Africa’s growth, Electricity+Control is uniquely positioned to provide a platform that informs electrical engineers and those in affiliated industries across the continent about the latest trends, technologies and developments. The magazine places equal focus on projects and solutions, covering everything from renewables to traditional energy systems.
