Contact : Omid Alizadeh. Prabha S. Sustainability of electric power systems requires balancing the business across three areas: economic, social and environmental. This will have a profound impact on how power systems are planned, built and operated in the future. In the evolving electricity supply industry environment, the challenges are to produce, transmit, and use energy in an environmentally friendly manner, to reduce costs by improving operating efficiency and business practices, and enhance the reliability and quality of power supply.
In particular, there will be increased focus on improving the security and reliability of power systems while addressing environmental concerns, such as greenhouse gas emissions and global warming issues. Research, development and application of intelligent systems technologies will play a major role in shaping the future directions of power systems in this regard.
This presentation will describe these changes affecting the electric power industry and highlight new technologies that will influence the changes. Biography : Prabha Kundur holds a Ph. Prior to joining Powertech, he worked at Ontario Hydro for nearly 25 years and held senior positions involving power system planning and design. He has also served as Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto from to and at the University of British Columbia from to He is the author of the book Power System Stability and Control McGraw-Hill, , which is a standard modern reference for the subject.
He has performed extensive international consulting related to power system planning and design, and has delivered advanced level technical courses for utilities, manufacturers and universities around the world. Kundur has a long record of service and leadership in the IEEE. Monday, May 14th at p. Contact : Ali Naderian. This started with a single product in , the Liquid Power Fuse, which was the first reliable power fuse able to protect against the high currents in distribution substations.
Siemens ingenuity for life.
Its invention helped pioneer the widespread adoption and spread of electricity. Wednesday, March 7th at p. Intelligent infrastructure paves the way for smarter, more integrated systems that keep economies running and contribute to economic success, efficiency savings, and economics of scales. Buildings not only offer space for working and living, they are also capital investments. Their value can be maintained only if they are operated cost-effectively.

A constant reliable energy supply is central for economic growth and stability, as well as social wellbeing. Transportation of people and goods is a top priority for metropolitan areas. Population growth, congestion and the growing demand for mobility all place increasing burdens on transport systems with negative impacts for businesses, residents and overall quality of life.
A Smart City applies state-of-the-art solutions enabled and improved by holistic Integration for the sake of the people, of the administration, of the business as well as of the environment. Lucia brings to Siemens extensive experience in the areas of engineering, construction management and commissioning of capital expansion projects. Tom Murad Tom is a respected leader, thinker, and distinguished speaker on the topics of Engineering, Technology and Technical talents development and education and a member of PEO Engineering Order of Honour.
He is also serving as a member of various advisory Boards of Directors in the Industry and Academia. Murad is a Fellow of Engineers Canada, a licensed P. In addition to economical advantages of the interconnection, the promotion of international cooperation is contributing to a broader international understanding. CO 2 emissions from electricity generation in different power plants. Cooperation on this project proceeded so well that the work will continue.
The construction of reserve capacity can be reduced or postponed. The report recommend three projects at this stage: Construction of HVOC linking Poland and Lithuania and reconstruction and uprating of some power stations in Latvia. He has been with Siemens since He is a. Re received his Dipl. He is also a professor at the University of Ljubljana. International interconnections for electric power transmission are subject to environmental assessment to meet requirements of the respective national governments and international investors. Even at the feasibility stage, an initial environmental assessment is required to outline the issues to be addressed as required by regulatory agencies and investors.
Technical assurances, risks, and anticipated returns on investment are traditionally dealt with in a feasibility study. Environmental and sociocultural impacts must also be included. In North America, most international electric power transmission interconnections have spanned the Canada-U.
Although large hydroelectric resources remain undeveloped in northern Canada, local generation in the United States from gas turbines and combined-cycle units are competitive with the long-distance transmission project. From an environmental aspect, each alternative has its advantages and disadvantages over the other. The decision for selecting between a HV transmission interconnection and a local gas-turbine generation option is governed by availability of energy, return on investment and the risk of that investment The gas-turbine option may also be perceived as environmentally more acceptable.
Investment in electric power transmission by nonutility investors is best applied to. Attracting nonutility investor participation will impact the way a feasibility study is prepared, particularly in achieving a short-term return on investment.
International investors, the World Bank and most national governments will demand stringent environmental and sociocultural considerations. The feasibility study for an international interconnection at any location must include an examination of possible substation locations, transmission alternatives, and corridor options, assess environmental impacts to determine preferences in routing and location and identify possible mitigation measures, all to evaluate the overall feasibility of the project.
To neglect such environmental considerations at the feasibility-study phase may be a false economy and a fatal flaw. However, aspects of the project that are not environmentally significant can be identified and recommendations made to prudently drop such from consideration in the ensuing environmental-assessment reports.
For example an HVDC transmission line has a lower environmental impact than an equivalent HVAC line in some aspects, and such can be identified and dealt with to a lessor extent than it would if the line was ac. Environment, social development, and gender considerations are broadly defined as the "natural and social conditions surrounding all mankind, and including future generations.
Ensuing environmental-assessment reports may be required to satisfy governments, investors, and lenders that impacts on health, cultural and tribal properties, indigenous peoples, and the natural environment are properly considered and acceptably dealt with. Sociocultural effects of the project such as new land settlement, involuntary resettlement and induced development would also be included in the additional environmental-assessment reports. The feasibility study can only proceed providing the governments involved have agreed to participate.
