  Keith R. Cooper, P.E. - Biographical Sketch  
  • B.S. in Electrical Engineering, University of Michigan 
  • B.S. in Mathematics, University of Michigan 
  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering, University of Pittsburgh 
1962 - 1964
Worked at Westinghouse Electric Corporation designing hardware and writing computer programs for automatic power dispatching equipment. 
1964 - 1970 
Joined U. S. Steel. Developed computer simulation of plant processes and computer programs for data logging and process control. Programmed in both Fortran and assembly languages. 
1970 - 1983
Developed in-house capability for conducting electrical power system analyses for U. S. Steel's 14 plants. Power system analyses included short-circuit, load-flow, voltage regulation, motor starting, harmonic, protective device coordination, power factor correction, arc furnace flicker, system reliability, and electrical energy management. In addition, responsible for trouble-shooting protective device malfunctions in the field, designing protective relay systems, and planning and estimating power systems for new facilities. Taught seminars to 100 engineers in power system analysis, design of protective device system, and protective device coordination. 
1983 - Present
Joined C-M-B Engineering Services ("CMB") as Principal Engineer. C-M-B is a consulting firm specializing in performing power system studies such as short-circuit, protective device coordination, load flow, voltage regulation, power factor, harmonic. These studies are used for planning and design of new/upgraded facilities, to solve problems in the field, and to improve and maintain existing power systems. 


  • Member of IEEE/IAS Society 
  • Subcommittee Chairman-Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Low Voltage Subcommittee 
  • Protective Relay Chapter Chairman of IEEE Buff Book Revision Committee (IEEE Standard 242) 
  • Chairman-IEEE /Standard 1015 -1997 "Recommended Practice for Applying Low Voltage Circuit Breakers Used in Industrial and Commercial Power Systems" 
  • Registered Professional Engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of Maryland 
  • Taught Seminars for Hughes Institute on Protective Relay Coordination (Low, Medium and High Voltage)
