Dean King is an undergrad at Clarkson University, where he is pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering. He currently works in the Electrical Maintenance Department at the Robert Moses Power Dam in Massena, NY.
Since starting my internship with NYPA, I have had the privilege to collaborate with and work alongside other engineers in the Electrical Maintenance team. In my first few weeks, I have been introduced to a field that is completely new to me and I am honored to have this opportunity to learn about power systems from such a reputable organization.
I have already had the opportunity to view most of the Robert Moses Power Dam and a few of the substations that are maintained by this facility. In my first few weeks, I have done work related to the most recent arc flash study, as well as take a deeper look into some of the relay systems here in the dam.
In the future, I hope to contribute to the NYPA team and prove myself as a valuable resource for both the Electrical Maintenance team and the Authority.
