Prof. Jean Mahseredjian, Polytechnique Montreal, Canada
Speech Title: Computation of Power System Transients with Renewable Energy Sources
Jean Mahseredjian graduated from Polytechnique Montréal with a Ph.D. in 1991. From 1987 to 2004 he worked at IREQ (Hydro-Québec) on research and development activities related to the simulation and analysis of electromagnetic transients. In December 2004 he joined the faculty of electrical engineering at Polytechnique Montréal. Jean Mahseredjian is the creator and lead developer of a software for the simulation of electromagnetic transients (EMTP®). His current research activities are related to the computation of power system transients for large-scale power systems.
