Power System Design and Protection (High & Medium Voltage)


A Three-Day Classroom Seminar (CPE Approved)

Register Soon to get Early Bird Pricing.

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.
