What to Expect

Join us for a free webinar on real-time electromagnetic transient (EMT) electric machine models, including a demonstration in the RSCAD software. This is part two in our series on machine modelling, focused on poly-phase (multiphase) machines! Click here to watch the recording of Part One. Note: Part One is not required prior to viewing this webinar.

Poly-phase machines have an important role in the representation of modern wind energy systems, electric ships, and electric vehicles and traction systems. The RTDS Simulator and RSCAD are used by manufacturers, utilities, and research institutions for the simulation of poly-phase machines and the hardware-in-the-loop testing of their control and protection systems.

  • Learn the motivation and applications of real-time poly-phase machine modelling
  • Take a detailed look at RSCAD’S poly-phase machine models
  • Watch a software demonstration of poly-phase machine dynamics in real time via RSCAD screenshare
  • Q&A with an expert in electric machine modelling
Note: This webinar does not include a detailed introduction to electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation or real-time operation. To learn more about these topics, listeners should watch this short video before joining.


Ali Dehkordi, Ph.D., P.Eng.
R&D Supervisor, Power System Modeling with RTDS Technologies

Bio: Ali Dehkordi received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran and Ph.D. degree from the University of Manitoba, Canada in 1999, 2002 and 2010 respectively.

Between 1998 and 2002, he worked on various industrial projects including substation and transformer maintenance as well as power quality projects. His research interests are on the modeling of power system and power electronic components and in particular electric machines for Electromagnetic Transient Programs and Real Time Digital Simulation, the area that he has been working on for over 17 years.

Dr. Dehkordi is a recipient of Dennis Woodford Prize, for “the most outstanding graduate thesis dealing with power system modeling and simulation”. He is currently employed by RTDS Technologies Inc., located in Winnipeg, Canada. He is a senior member of IEEE.
