Additional tutorials to be announced soon.


Title: Simulation of Power System Transients and Protection Systems using EMTP-RV

Instructor: Jean Mahseredjian

Jean Mahseredjian (Fellow IEEE, 2013) received his Ph.D. degree from Polytechnique Montreal, Canada, in 1991. From 1987 to 2004, he was with IREQ (Hydro-Quebec), involved in research and development activities related to the simulation and analysis of electromagnetic
transients. In 2004, he joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering at Polytechnique Montreal, where he is currently a Professor and holds a Hydro-Quebec/Opal-RT/EDF/RTE NSERC Industrial Chair.


Instructor: Ilhan Kocar

Ilhan Kocar (SM’13) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montreal (University of Montréal), QC, Canada in 2009.   He worked as a Project Engineer at Aselsan Electronics Inc. (1998-2004) and as an R&D Engineer at CYME International T&D (2009-2011). He joined the faculty at Polytechnique Montreal in 2011. His research is on the development of concepts, models and methods for power systems analysis and simulation in a wide spectrum: from steady state to electromagnetic transients.


Instructor: Henry Gras

Henry Gras received the M.A.Sc. degree from Polytechnique Montréal, Canada in 2014. He is currently working as research associate at Polytechnique Montréal where he is engaged in research and development activities related to the simulation of power systems in time-domain. He is highly involved in the development of new models in the simulation software EMTP-RV. In parallel of his R&D works, Henry is also responsible for worldwide technical support of EMTP on behalf of the EMTP distributor (Powersys). He conducts many public webinars and trainings for utilities and consultants on the topic of power system simulations.
