The Hydro-Québec/TransÉnergie Chair on Simulation and Control of Electric Power Systems is born of a partnership between ÉTS and Hydro-Québec TransÉnergie.

The role and focus of the Chair are critical to Hydro-Québec TransÉnergie's activities, and help facilitate the design and operation of an ever more complex electric transmission system, which is constantly interacting with neighbouring transmission systems.  The Chair also fulfills another essential role for TransÉnergie, i.e., the training of high-level experts capable of meeting the challenges posed by an ever-evolving market.

Furthermore, this Chair is in keeping with ÉTS' desire and mission to establish and maintain close ties with industry. The partnership is another example of how ÉTS is putting forward the expertise of its research professors in order to carry out high technology work that is so crucial to Quebec's economy.
