Rotating Machine Drives and HVDC Transmission Line Studies

Saturday, February 18th, 2012


Title: Rotating Machine Drives and HVDC Transmission Line Studies

Date: February 24, 2012


8 am – 12 pm (Part 1: EMT simulation of Rotating Drives)
1-5 pm (Part 2: Introduction to HVDC Transmission Line Studies)

Location: University of Calgary (room TBA)

Instructor: Farid Mosallat, M.Sc. Manitoba HVDC Research Centre

Farid has been a Research and Simulation Engineer at the Manitoba HVDC Research Centre since 2005. He received the B.Sc. degree from Tabriz University (Tabriz, Iran) and the M.Sc. degree from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran, Iran) in 1996 and 1998, respectively. He is also pursuing the Ph.D. degree at the University of Manitoba. Prior to joining the Centre, he worked as an Automation and Drives Engineer in the manufacturing sector, and was involved in the design and commissioning of electrical distribution/control systems for material handling equipment such as shipyard cranes, and stacker/reclaimer systems. His areas of expertise include industrial automation, instrumentation, electric drive systems and power electronic converters.


Following the tremendous success that our monthly seminars achieved, we are delighted to introduce the first one-day tutorial.  The tutorial shall be of an interest to both industry application and utility electrical engineers.  The tutorial is designed for those who are seeking more in-depth knowledge in regards to power system analysis under harmonic-producing conditions interested and it is composed of two parts (each part will be 4 hours):

Part 1: EMT Simulation of Rotating Machine Drives (more of interest for Industrial Application engineers)
Part 2: Introduction to HVDC Transmission Line Studies (more of interest for Utility Engineers)

You can subscribe and attend either or both parts.

Fee Structure:

IEEE Member Non-Member
Part 1 $150 $225 Subscribe
Part 2 $150 $225 Subscribe
Part 1 and 2 $225 $350 Subscribe

Space will be available for 25 participants (first come, first serve basis).

Lunch will be provided for all participant and tutorial presenters.

IEEE’s Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) Training Workshop!

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

The IEEE Educational Activities Department, Region 7 and the local Sections are hosting a TISP Training Workshop: at the Marriott Hotel (Chateau Champlain) downtown Montreal during May 15-16, 2009.

The workshop will cover how to organize volunteers for TISP and how to bring the program to teachers in your local schools and school districts. Thanks to the support of the IEEE Educational Activities Board the event is free for all IEEE members and invited educators! (IEEE will reimburse for travel-related expenses for this workshop. Travel-related expenses include one night hotel stay and transportation to and from the location of the workshop.)
