PV modelling for EMT-simulation

May 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fairmont Palliser – Calgary, 133 9th Ave. Southwest
Calgary, Alberta Canada

The amount on renewable energies in electrical grids is constantly growing and, with it, the need to improve the simulation tools and models used to study their integrations. More and more system operators are now requiring very advanced EMT models for new wind or solar projects. This tutorial will focus on Photovoltaic (PV) parks. The objective is to understand why it is important to simulate PVs with time-domain software and to learn how to model them for EMT simulations. The…

Electrical Safety and Switching Procedures and Practices

May 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fairmont Palliser – Calgary, 133 9th Ave. Southwest
Calgary, Alberta Canada

This tutorial is intended for electrical engineers and operators involved in the safety and integrity aspects of industrial and microgrids of large commercial electrical systems during their different design, commissioning and operational stages. The tutorial introduces definitions for an operational language and discusses lockout/tagout (LO/TO), switching procedures, safety and reliability aspects as imbedded in the design stage and system architecture development, related safety standards and computer and software applications associated with such aspects.

Recent Trends in Power Quality Improvement for Industrial Systems

May 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Fairmont Palliser – Calgary, 133 9th Ave. Southwest
Calgary, Alberta Canada

This tutorial will cover the fundamentals of power quality as it relates to power systems feeding electronic loads and how these problems manifest themselves as control issues, lockups of computers, extremely slow operations, failed components and other nuisance conditions. The major elements to be covered will be harmonics, electronic grounding and voltage disturbances. The tutorial will cover harmonic generation, control and basic mitigation techniques, IEEE 519 and where it applies. It will address electronic grounding, national electric code requirements, basic…

High-Resistance Grounding (HRG) of Industrial and Commercial Power System

May 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Fairmont Palliser – Calgary, 133 9th Ave. Southwest
Calgary, Alberta Canada

This tutorial is intended for both the experienced engineers much familiar with the HRG design as well as for the younger engineers starting their career in the power system design. How such an HRG design enhances safety of maintenance personnel and minimizes equipment hazard will be the main focus once the instructor provides clarifications on the fundamentals of HRG design. One of the most confusing and challenging technical information of using HRG design is the flow of system charging current…

Modern Relay Protection & Control Applications

September 23, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
TransAlta T1-Auditorium, 110 - 12th Ave SW
Calgary, Alberta Canada
+ Google Map

The advent of microprocessor based relays has brought about significant efficiencies in design and options available for types of protection all in a single relay. Further insight to detailed design for improving reliability and understanding of power systems can be realized with intricate event monitoring and use of user defined logic in these relays to achieve this end. This presentation will examine specific field examples and commissioning results of such applications.

Quality Assurance of Transformer

June 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The manufacturing of Transformer is integrated to global supply chain. With the improvement of technology, the design and manufacturing of transformer can be more aggressive such as reduce clearance and use of pure mineral oil during FAT to ensure the passing of tests during FAT. Clean room and environmental condition can be compromised during the manufacturing process which can have impact in the life expectancy of transformer. This presentation will walk through the quality assurance of transformer during the manufacturing of transformer.
