Distributed Generation and Introduction to Smart Grid

Share

Abstract: The Topic of this seminar is “Distributed Generation and Introduction to Smart Grid”. The main objective is to provide a summary of the current practices and challenges to connect Embedded Distributed Generators i.e. solar, wind, battery storage systems, etc. to the distribution grid

The presentation will address the following:

  • An overview of the traditional and future power grid
  • A review of government initiatives around the world and in Ontario
  • An evaluation on the impact of distributed generators including:
    • Model distributed generators & predict the increased short circuit levels, voltage profiles changes along the network
    • Brief overview of interconnection standards i.e. IEEE 1547
    • Review of connection processes for utilities in Ontario and interconnection requirements
  • An introduction to Smart Grid Technologies.

 

Speaker: Hugo Sanchez-Reategui has been a consultant of Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream Inc.) for the past 8 years confirming interconnection requirements to connect Embedded Distributed Generators, dealing with stakeholders, developers, utilities and government agencies. Hugo is a current member of Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO), Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE), past Vice President of Public Relations of Humber Shores Toastmasters (Public Speaking Club). He earned a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering at National University of Callao, Peru and IEEQB Program Certificate at Ryerson University, Toronto in 2010. Hugo has been an active volunteer member of IEEE Toronto (largest IEEE section in Canada) since early 2016, he has been supporting student branches, chapters and IEEE Canada conferences. During his past volunteering role of 2 years (2016 – 2018) with IEEE Toronto, he led the Industry Relations Committee, managing a selected group of volunteers to work on technology topics i.e. Cyber Security, Smart Grid and other emerging technologies showing the awareness of these topics and promoting the IEEE brand as a technology leader in Canada and North America. In addition, Hugo mentors undergrad, new grad students and participates as a speaker in IEEE events. His technical interests include Smart Grid Technologies, Distribution Operations, Substation Communications and Protection of Distribution Systems.
