Background

Steven R. Musial II, P.E.

Brief Summary of Electrical Engineering Experience

Steven R. Musial, II P.E., BSEE Carnegie Mellon University, has nearly 40 years of electrical engineering experience, including 11 years at Duquesne Light Company in the design of overhead and underground power systems at voltage levels of 345 kV, 138 kV, 23 kV and 4 kV. For more than 29 years he has been responsible for monitoring electric utility distribution system reliability, performing technical consulting services for utility customers, and teaching professional review courses (Electrical PE Review and EIT Review), undergraduate electrical engineering and various electrical continuing education courses. His primary area of technical expertise is power quality and power distribution. He has extensive customer contact experience along with Major Account Sales training. Steve was a Principal at CJL Engineering from 2001 until 2014, where he managed power quality and power system consulting studies. Steve joined LLI Engineering in Pittsburgh in September 2014, as the Manager of the Electrical Engineering Dept. His department has grown by 75% since his start due to growing workload. He has been a Senior Member of the IEEE since 1983. Steve has been teaching for the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers since 2000. Also, in 2001, Steve began teaching for the Advanced Power System School associated with Penn State University. Recently, the Advanced Power System School is now an independent organization called Power System Training.

Steve has been an adjunct professor for Penn State since 1993. Additionally, he has been an Associate Professor for Point Park University since the fall of 2016. Steve has been teaching electrical courses for more than 30 years, including:

  • Undergraduate electrical engineering
  • Continuing electrical education courses, including courses on the National Electrical Code.
  • FE Review Course
  • Electrical Engineering PE Review Course
  • Mechanical Engineering PE Review and a portion of the Civil PE Review Courses.

I have taught the vast majority of these courses numerous times since
January 1986.  Throughout most of the year I usually teach various
weekday evenings as well as on Saturdays.  I have taught extensively
for Penn State’s Advanced Power Systems School since August 2001,
not only locally in Pittsburgh throughout the year, but also worldwide…
examples: Panama City, Panama in 2001, and
Bangkok Thailand in 2004, 2009, 2010, 2011 and in 2012.
