Embedding Reliability Engineering Practices, A Practical Example

November 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
TransAlta T1-Auditorium, 110 - 12th Ave SW
Calgary, Alberta Canada
+ Google Map

Asset Management, Reliability engineering, predictive and preventative maintenance; these are the new catch phrases of the day. But what do they really mean? What does it look like when implemented? Are reliability engineering and asset management the same thing? How do I present and argue the inherent value of embedding these practices into my business and drive not only compliance but a commitment to doing them and improving them? In today’s talk we will endeavor to help put the topics…

Transformer Installation and Testing

February 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
TransAlta T1-Auditorium, 110 - 12th Ave SW
Calgary, Alberta Canada
+ Google Map

This presentation will discuss the processes involved with oil-filled transformers including those of: Receiving a transformer after transport to a substation site Assembly and processing of a transformer at site Testing of a transformer to verify its suitability for service Discussion of integrating the transformer into the power system Transformers are required in almost every power supply situation. The installation and testing of the transformer verifies its condition at the time it is ready for service as well as forming…

Sub-synchronous Interaction and Harmonic Control Instability associated with HVDC and Wind Plant Installations

April 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sub-synchronous interactions (SSI) are a family of physical interactions that involve exchange of energy between a generator and a transmission system at ac frequencies below the system nominal frequency. They include sub-synchronous resonance (SSR), sub-synchronous torsional interaction (SSTI), and sub-synchronous control instability (SSCI). SSR is a phenomenon that can cause increased fatigue or critical failure of generator turbine shaft systems due to an energy exchange between the generator and a series-compensated transmission system, either through sustained or poorly damped oscillations,…

PV modelling for EMT-simulation

May 9 @ 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 @ 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 @ 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 @ 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…

Introduction to IEEE Standards and the Recent Revisions of IEEE 1584 – Arc Flash Calculations

July 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
TransAlta T1-Auditorium, 110 - 12th Ave SW
Calgary, Alberta Canada

Southern Alberta is pleased to host Daleep Mohla, Chair of the IEEE 1584 Working Group, and Wei-Jen Lee, IEEE IAS President-Elect, for a seminar discussing the changes in the 2018 revision of IEEE 1584. The seminar begins with an introduction to the IEEE Standards Association, and the standards development process. Join us to hear about important changes to IEEE 1584, and this unique opportunity to ask your questions directly to members of the Working Group.
