“Meet and Learn” – Technical Society Reporting Out Session – Doble/IEEE/SD Software

November 15, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Co-sponsored by: Bob Stewart

The IEEE Vancouver Section Industry Applications Society Chapter and BC Hydro are pleased to co-sponsor this technical society reporting out event.  The purpose of this event is to share and transfer knowledge gained from attending technical society meetings, conferences, technical training, etc. with others in the profession.  The presentations to be made at this event are from individuals who attended the 2018 IEEE PES General Meeting, and the 2018 Doble Conference, plus a demonstration of the capabilities of a Substation Design software package will be given. The other two presenters will provide a summary of the topics presented at the events they attended, plus cover any highlights, share any new information learned and discuss issues that are currently of high interest to BC Hydro as well as the rest of the power industry.  Each presentation will be 30 minutes long.


Please come and meet with colleagues on topics relevant to the power industry. Food and refreshments will be provided. Registration is encouraged and the event is free-of-charge.
