Seminar Description

Power system planning and operation covers wide and diverse topics in electrical engineering. This course will cover fundamental concepts, aspects and issues in system planning and operation. The most basic objectives are voltage and frequency control and management. The seminar introduces means of controls such as synchronous generator, shunt and facts devices. Predictive as well corrective means for system operation such as designing load shedding schemes. Planning optimal voltage profile and reactive power resources, spinning reserve requirements. Participants will gain a general understanding of system planning and operation, methods of analysis and practical solutions.

Presenter

Ali Moshref, PhD, P.Eng.

Partner, Principal Engineer, Power Systems and Testing, BBA Inc.

Dr. Moshref joined BBA in 2012 with over 35 years of power system experience in the energy industry, including power system planning, system operation, asset management, and alternate energy resources for power generation, and software development for the analysis of power systems.

Previously at Powertech Labs, Dr. Moshref was the Power System Studies Manager and reported to the Smart Utility Business Unit Director. Dr. Moshref developed planning and operation strategies and policies for various utilities and industrial organizations.
Early in his career, Dr. Moshref co-founded CYME International Inc. where he designed and developed more than 12 computer programs for power system analysis.

Dr. Moshref is the recipient of numerous awards from McGill University in Montréal, Quebec, the IDA World Congress on Desalination and Water Sciences in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and the NSERC Industrial Fellowship, Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

Dr. Moshref is Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE) and member of the Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia, and a lecturer at the University of Victoria (UVic).
