Electrical Power and Energy Conference Technical Tutorials now open for Registration:

1. Power Flow Controllers

Kalyan K. Sen, Chief Technology Officer, Sen Engineering Solutions

Session features a high-level overview of various power flow controllers and their features including voltage regulating transformers, phase angle regulators, shunt inductor/capacitor, and series inductor/capacitor, and Voltage-Sourced Converters (VSC).

The presentation will be of particular interest to all utility power engineering professionals with familiarity in power engineering terminology. The audience will hear from an expert who actually designed and commissioned a number of power electronics-based FACTS controllers.

2. Developments in HVDC and FACTS for Power Transmission Grids

Ervin Spahic, Head of Future Technologies, Siemens
Jörg Dorn, Head of R&D, Technology and Innovation, Siemens

This tutorial will reveal trends in Europe related to nuclear generator phase out and Integration of renewables. Technology, theory and applications related to high voltage DC transmission and experience from actual projects in Canada and USA.

This session is for transmission system operators, grid developers, consulting companies, universities and others interested in related new technologies.

3. Microgrids Operation and Control – Theory and Practice

Amir Hajimiragha, GE Digital Energy, Grid Automation

This session will cover microgrid challenges and potential opportunities including: DC vs. AC, CERTS microgrid concept, concepts and interactions among distribution management systems (DMS), energy management systems, microgrid controllers and microgrid control, communications systems and related standards. Included is a real-world microgrid example covering: conventional system configuration, control and monitoring solutions, challenges, achievements and lessons learned.

The target audience for this session is engineers from utilities and local distribution companies, managers and policy analysts, and university graduate students.

4. Grid Security

Doug Houseman, Vice President of Innovation and Technology, EnerNex

From NERC CIP to Privacy Regulation, security is becoming a mandated item on the grid. For more than 100 years most people respected the electric grid and left it alone, feeling that it was a shared public resource that needed to be provided. Now with the advent of Cyber warfare, home grown terrorists, black mail hackers, and others the grid needs protection. Not just cyber security but physical security as well.

The target audience for this session is engineers from utilities and local distribution companies, managers and policy analysts, and university graduate students

5. Smart Fault Monitoring and Protection
