Announcement: MIPSYCON Will Be Virtual in 2021!

  • Date: November 2–4, 2021
  • Presentation Proposals: Submit your proposal!
  • For: Electric utility engineers and consultants

Due to the continued uncertainty around holding in-person events and conversations with our vendor partners, planning committee members, and the University of Minnesota, we’ve decided the Minnesota Power Systems Conference (MIPSYCON) will be held fully online again in 2021. We are excited to put together another fruitful virtual conference experience where everyone can safely attend.


Stay abreast of today's power system technology in this three-day conference that emphasizes the unique challenges faced by electric utilities in the Midwest. Concurrent sessions include substations, metering, transmission, project management, relaying, distribution automation/communications, safety and security, emerging technologies, generation, and tutorials.

Sponsored by 

College of Continuing and Professional Studies, University of Minnesota 

In cooperation with 

IEEE Twin Cities PES/IAS

Continuing Education Units

Participants who attend the entire conference will receive 1.5 University of Minnesota College of Continuing and Professional Studies CEUs. Participants who attend only Tuesday and Wednesday will receive 1.2 CEUs. One CEU is defined as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience. A CEU certificate will be sent to each participant after the conference. A permanent record of CEUs earned will be maintained by the University of Minnesota Office of Admissions and Record Transcript Unit.
