Power System Harmonics of Modern Nonlinear Loads w/ Young Professional – Intro to High-Speed Motor Bus Transfer

 

Young Professional Opening Talk: Intro to High-Speed Motor Bus Transfer

Presented By: Daniel Lang, P.Eng., PES/IAS Chapter Vice-Chair 

Abstract:

Process conditions in many industrial facilities often cannot tolerate discontinuity of critical loads, even momentarily. Operational continuity is provided mainly by high-speed motor bus transfer schemes. This need for speed comes with a trade-off as these systems require complex high-speed relaying to prevent catastrophic transient torsional stresses being imposed on the motor shaft. This presentation provides an overview of typical high-speed bus transfer schemes and their limitations, as well as the extensiveness of the applicable standards.

Bio:

Daniel Lang is an electrical engineering consultant with GP Technologies in Edmonton. His professional practice involves all areas of power system analysis and design, specifically power system transient and steady state analyses, protective relaying, power system stability, and design of LV and MV distribution systems. Daniel is a Professional Engineer registered in the Province of Alberta and is a member of the IEEE.

 

Main Technical Seminar: Power System Harmonics of Modern Nonlinear Loads

Presented By: Alexandre Nassif, Ph.D., P.Eng., S.IEEE, NCS Chair and Canada-West PES Chapter Representative 

Abstract:

For decades, harmonics have represented a challenge to electric utilities, manufacturers of power electronics equipment, and users of large nonlinear loads in general. This presentation will cover a background of harmonic generation, propagation, and effects in both distribution and transmission systems. It will present techniques for modeling, measurement and identification of harmonics. It will cover applicable standards, induction coordination issues, and issues that affect measurement reliability.

Bio:

Alexandre Nassif is a specialist engineer in ATCO Electric. He has published more than 50 technical papers in international journals and conferences in the areas of power quality, DER, microgrids and power system protection and stability. Before joining ATCO, he simultaneously worked for Hydro One as a protection planning engineer and Ryerson University as a post-doctoral research fellow. He holds a doctoral degree from the UofA, is a Professional Engineer in Alberta and a Senior Member of IEEE.
