Alex Takahashi, P.E.

Principal, Transmission & Distribution

Alex Takahashi has over forty years of experience in engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for electrical power generation plants and transmission and distribution (T&D) facilities for utility
companies, municipalities, independent power producers (IPPs) and industrial customers. The power generation projects include conventional fossil-fuel power generation plants, gas-turbine generating facilities, co-generation plants, geothermal power plants, solar and wind power generation facilities and refuge derived fuel (municipal waste) power generating projects. The T&D facilities include high-voltage (69 kv-345 kV) transmission lines and substation and medium-voltage (11-34 kV) distribution lines and substations.  Alex Spent most of his career at Bechtel. Alex formed his own engineering company called West Power and joined ZGlobal in 2011.

 

The key areas of experience include the following:

 

  • Power generating plants - Electrical power system & generation protection system design
     

  • High-voltage Transmission Lines (69kV-345 kV) & Substations - EPCM Services
     

  • Renewable Energy Systems - Wind, solar, geothermal and RDF energy conversion projects
     

  • Power Systems Analysis- Power flow studies, system impact studies,
     

  • Transmission System Engineering –PLS-CADD Design services
     

  • Power Grid Interconnections – Applications and coordination with utility companies
     

  • Smart Grid Technologies – Development of Smart Grid Standards (IEEE P2030)
