Ambrish Chandra

Member of the IEEE's Distinguished Lecturer Program

February 5, 2016
Professor Chandra is recognized internationally for his work
focussing on the quality of electrical energy,
harmonic compensations, active power filters,
and integration of renewable energy sources.
Knowledge knows no boundaries, and Ambrish Chandra can attest to that! A few months ago, this professor with the ÉTS's Faculty of Electrical Engineering became a member of the Distinguished Lecturer program of the Power and Energy Society (PES) division of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The raison d'être of the Distinguished Lecturer program is not only to highlight the achievements of engineers who are recognized in their field, but also to provide the various worldwide divisions of the IEEE with a repertory of highly specialized lecturers in approximately fifty sectors of electrical engineering.  

Professor Chandra, who has published close to 300 research papers and "Power Quality: Problems and Mitigation Techniques" in collaboration with professors Bhim Singh and Kamal Al-Haddad, is internationally recognized for his work on the quality of electrical energy, harmonic compensations, active power filters, and integration of renewable energy sources.

That being said, being an expert does not guarantee entrance into this select Distinguished Lecturer club. To become a member, one must first be named a fellow of the IEEE. Once elected, the fellow must be recommended by a peer who is also an IEEE member.

Thus, it was as a distinguished lecturer that Professor Chandra was recently invited to Southwest Asia, notably Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, to give a series of conferences dealing with renewable energy in remote regions.
These cross-border conferences enabled Professor Chandra to share his knowledge with industry engineers, researchers and university professors around the globe.

Our warmest congratulations to Professor Chandra for this well-deserved honour that contributes to promoting ÉTS internationally. 

Power Quality book In addition to contributing to the drafting of six journal articles that have set the standards for energy quality, Professor Chandra, along with two collaborators, wrote the book Power Quality: Problems and Mitigation Techniques.
