Short Course on: Power System Engineering, Operation and Management


Power System Engineering, Operation and Management.

Who should attend: Electrical, IT and others engineers with interest in energy & power system; Technocrats, technologists and other professionals in the field of power generation, transmission & distribution; Foreign-trained professionals. Graduate/ undergraduate students in (colleges and universities);


The Education Committee of the IEEE Toronto Section is offering a short course in “Power System Engineering, Operation and Management” in January 2019 to develop an understanding of the practical applications of power system engineering and technologies in the fields of generation, transmission and distribution.

Objective: The objective of this course is to ‘Bridge the Gap between Engineering Education and the Practical Workplace’ and to make transformative advancements in engineering education and professional training by integrating power system engineering theory with ongoing cutting-edge research trends and latest workplace technologies, products and practices, for the best interest of power engineering students & professionals.

Description: This course aims to develop and enhance relevant knowledge and skills related to all segments of the power system starting from electricity generation including latest renewable generation sources, the flow of power through high voltage transmission grid system to reduce losses and distribution of energy and power to end consumers at various voltage levels through a large network of distribution system. The course will prepare you to expand your knowledge about the power system SCADA, EMS and DMS technologies with latest technologically advanced products and solutions to operate and manage this complex set of resources, power grid and distribution network. Additionally, a site visit to a power system operation and control Centre for Ontario’s power grid will be conducted to see the overall system operations.
