The 14th annual CIGRE Canada Conference on Power Systems will be hosted by Hydro-Québec in Montréal on September 16-19.

CIGRE Canada is the Canadian National Committee of the International Council on Large Electric Systems, the leading international organization on high-voltage electricity generation and transmission. The purpose of the conference is to promote collaboration with experts from around Canada and the world by sharing knowledge and joining forces to improve electric power systems of today and tomorrow.

As a Diamond Sponsor, PSC is highly involved in the CIGRE Canada Conference. There are several opportunities to hear from our thought leaders and technical experts this year, detailed below. Don’t forget to swing by our Booth #44 on the exhibit floor!  Learn more and register for the conference at

Paper Presentation – Active Power Priority Vs. Reactive Power Priority Operating Modes in Solar Plants // 10:00am – 10:15am, Wednesday September 18, Session 14 Room B

Dr. Matin Rahmatian

As renewable penetration increases in transmission systems around the world, the importance of control mode selection for each renewable facility increases. PSC’s Dr. Matin Rahmatian will be presenting a paper comparing active power and reactive power priority operating modes in solar plants.

Sponsor’s Panel – Towards the Energy System of the Future // 8:15am – 9:15am

John Camelleri

Join PSC’s John S. Camilleri alongside speakers from Siemens, ABB, and OSI as they explore the innovations (and implications) of the global energy transition.

John has spent most of his career integrating and developing SCADA, EMS and DMS systems for mid to large investor owned utilities. He brings real-world experience addressing cyber-security issues in real-time systems, as well as more than a decade of in-depth exposure to the evolution of renewables, distributed generation, microgrids and developing real-time systems to manage them.

Today, John is continuing his mission to help the industry move forward with complex OT/IT system integrations in times of innovation and uncertainty.
