Speaker Bios

Jiadai Liu
Senior Simulation Specialist, FPGA Development 

Bio: Jiadai Liu holds a B.Sc in Electronic Science and Technology from Harbin Institute of Technology, M.Eng in ECE from Windsor University and Ph.D. in Power Systems Engineering from University of Alberta. He joined RTDS Technologies Inc. in 2015 and currently serves as the Senior Simulation Specialist and FPGA development. Jiadai has been involved in FPGA model development, power electronics modelling, technical support and user training.

Paul Forsyth
VP, Marketing & Sales

Bio: Paul Forsyth received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Manitoba, Canada in 1988. After graduating he worked for several years in the area of reactive power compensation and HVDC at ABB Power Systems in Switzerland. Since 1995 he has been employed by RTDS Technologies where he currently holds the title of VP – Marketing & Sales.

Ali Banitalebi Dehkordi
R&D Supervisor / Technical Lead, Simulation and Model Development

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.
