Key takeaways from this webinar:

  1. Develop an understanding of the power distribution networks and its importance.
  2. Understand the various factors in the design of power distribution.
  3. Understand overhead and underground distribution.
  4. If you are an electrical engineering student or junior engineer, this will enable you to grow your career more as an power systems or distribution design engineer.
  5. The modern challenges that the aging power distribution networks are facing with the rise of solar and renewables.
  6. Safety considerations from both the network side and general public.

Presenter: Mr. Jagdeep Suran, Team Leader (Energy) at Arcadis Australia & EIT Lecturer

Jagdeep, originally from India, completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Electrical and Power Engineering (Honours) at Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College in Ludhiana, Punjab, India.

In India, he served as an engineering lecturer in the Vocation Education and Training (VET) sector. His role focused on developing the skills of rural students and preparing them for careers as tradespersons in technical schools. He provided practical teaching on the job, equipping students with the necessary expertise.

In 2008, Jagdeep relocated to Australia and continued his engineering journey as an electrical engineer. Over the years, he has held various senior and design management positions. He has played a pivotal role as the lead designer on numerous major and complex power distribution projects. His expertise extends to overhead, underground, and substation designs, power relocations, as well as large-scale industrial and commercial supply projects.

Currently, Jagdeep works for a global consultancy as a Technical Leader, overseeing significant and intricate projects. Alongside his technical responsibilities, he remains committed to sharing his industry knowledge with new graduate engineers and junior engineers, much like his previous work in India.
