Dr C.Y. Chung is a Professor, the NSERC/SaskPower Senior Industrial Research Chair in Smart Grid Technologies, and the SaskPower Chair in Power Systems Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada. He is a prominent leader for advancing academic activities and applied research in power systems engineering development in the province of Saskatchewan. He is a Fellow of IEEE and IET. He is also an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer and the Member-at-Large (Global Outreach) of IEEE PES Governing Board.
Dr Chung received the B.Eng. degree (with First Class Honors) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. He has worked for Powertech Labs, Inc., Surrey, BC, Canada; the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada; and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China. Dr Chung’s research interests include smart grid, renewable energy, power system stability/control, planning and operation, applications of advanced optimization methods, power markets and electric vehicle charging. His research work has not only generated 3 US patents, 2 book chapters and over 100 international journal papers, but has also resulted in successful transference of two new commercial software packages developed for power system analysis. Software package “Small Signal Analysis Tool (SSAT)” developed by him is now being used by over 80 power companies and nearly 90 universities worldwide.
Dr Chung was the Member-at-Large (Smart Grid) of IEEE PES Governing Board, the IEEE PES Region 10 North Chapter Representative, the Past Chairman of the IEEE Hong Kong Section, IEEE Hong Kong Joint Chapter of PES/IAS/PELS/IES and IET Hong Kong PES.
