After 1998: A more robust grid
Pierre, researcher, Varennes, February 8, 1998, 10:00 a.m.
We did it! Power was restored to the last customer on February 6.
Now it’s time to assess the lessons learned. Québec experienced an unprecedented weather event, of course, but what can Hydro-Québec to do avoid another such crisis? All the transmission and distribution system specialists, engineers and researchers are in problem-solving mode. A symposium has been organized to try to get to the bottom of what happened, review the situation and find ways to build a more robust grid. We have to roll up our sleeves and improve our ways of doing things!
