By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
Ryerson University’s Centre for Urban Energy’s popular Electrical Engineering 101 seminar series is set to return, starting January 8, 2020. The series will run for 12 weeks, and will take place from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at Ryerson’s brand-new Centre for Urban Innovation at 44 Gerrard Street East, Toronto.
The purpose of the seminar series is to introduce the fundamental concepts of electrical engineering to those without an engineering background looking to enter or advance their career in the energy sector. The goal is to equip participants with the foundational tools necessary to speak confidently and contribute effectively in energy-related roles. The series has been updated and revamped for 2020 following feedback from industry partners and previous participants.
The topics set to be covered during the seminar series includes basic concepts, DC circuits, AC circuits, transformers, power systems structure, substations and control, interconnected power systems, power system protection, generation and motors, power systems analysis, renewable energy and more.
According to Dr. Bala Venkatesh, the academic director of the Centre for Urban Energy, this series is ideal for “employers who may be interested in sending their employees to take this series as part of ongoing professional development and training initiatives.”
At the end of the seminar series, participants will be provided with a record of attendance and a copy of all learning materials.
