Citation from the Engineering Institute of Canada:
Dr. Tony Chung is a professor, the NSERC/SaskPower Senior Industrial Research Chair in Smart Grid Technologies, and the SaskPower Chair in Power Systems Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan (USask).
He is a prominent leader for advancing academic activities and applied research in power systems engineering development in Saskatchewan. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET), and an IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Distinguished Lecturer.
He is an internationally recognized leading expert in power system stability, control and optimization, and development of smart grid technologies. His cutting-edge research work has not only generated three US patents, two book chapters and more than 130 international journal papers, many in well-respected IEEE transactions, but has also resulted in successful transference of three new commercial software packages developed for power system analysis. The software package Small Signal Analysis Tool (SSAT) developed by him has been widely used by power industries.
Dr. Chung has consulted with both government agencies and well-known private companies. He has delivered more than 50 keynote speeches/invited talks for professional societies, industries and universities. He has been the editor of six international journals and has held important posts in IEEE and international conference organizations.
Warm congratulations from the College of Engineering
Dr. Suzanne Kresta (PhD), dean of the college of engineering, congratulated Chung on his recognition from the Engineering Institute of Canada and said the list of his accomplishments only tells part of the story. "Those of you who have worked directly with Tony know that he is a master collaborator, a visionary technical leader, and an inspriring mentor.
"We are very fortunate to have him in our college, and he is committed to making a significant difference to the future of power engineering in Canada, and to impacting the growth of knowledge in this discipline globally."
