Mohindar S. Sachdev’s passion for standards development made him a driving force in creating and revising guidelines for safer and reliable electric power systems. Through hands-on writing and key leadership, Dr. Sachdev became a cornerstone of the IEEE Power System Relaying Committee’s success in publishing important standards and guides impacting power system protection. As technology evolved, Dr. Sachdev played an important role in revising standards originally written for electromechanical and analog devices to reflect the role of digital technology in the automation, control, and protection that has led to today’s smart grids. His work focused on areas ranging from differential and polarized circuit testing to grounding of secondary circuits and protection of power transformers to protective relay applications for transmission lines.

An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Sachdev is Professor Emeritus with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada.
