Power System Protection and Control (P&C) of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires a good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection techniques, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment. This course is ideal for engineers shifting into the field of Protection and Control. This program starts with a thorough overview of power system fundamentals, design approaches, and short circuit calculation principles which leads to the understanding of protection scheme requirements and its applications.
Protection requirements for industrial plants, cogeneration facilities, electric generators and their interconnection with utility power systems is explained in detail. This course covers the subject of power system protection from a practical perspective, and includes important functional specs such as testing and coordination of protection systems. This course is designed for individuals who are involved with industrials and utilities and who need to quickly get up to speed and learn how to design and protect electrical systems.
A laptop is required.

This live group seminar is eligible for 22.0 CPE credits. Be aware that state boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. As of January 1, 2002, sponsored learning activities are measured by program length, with one 50-minute period equal to one CPE credit. One-half CPE credit increments (equal to 25 minutes) are permitted after the first credit has been earned in a given learning activity. You may want to verify that the state board from which your participants will be receiving credit accept one-half credits.
