MONTREAL, April 11 /CNW Telbec/ - On April 14, three Hydro-Québec
research teams will receive an Annual Achievement Award from the Utility Wind Integration Group (UWIG), honoring their significant contribution to the development of tools for
the simulation, dynamic modeling and analysis of power systems with a
large share of wind power.
This recognition by UWIG is remarkable and unusual because it honors
three teams of researchers from the same company—a rare occurrence.
"This well-deserved honor is a tribute to the innovative talent of our
research teams and the expertise that Hydro-Québec devotes to
renewables energies, particularly hydroelectricity and wind power. The
relevance and timeliness of their research will allow the company to
benefit from unique, highly effective simulation tools that will help
to optimize wind power output and integrate many projects into
Hydro-Québec's extensive power grid," said Denis Faubert, General
Manager of IREQ, Hydro-Québec's research institute.
Established in 1989, the Utility Wind Integration Group (UWIG) provides
a forum for the critical analysis of wind technology for utility
applications and serves as a source of credible information on the
status of wind technology and its deployment. Based in the United
States, UWIG has over 150 members from the U.S., Canada, Europe and
