Training course overview

Electricity is generated at power plants and moves through a complex system, sometimes called the grid, of electricity substations, transformers, and power lines that connect electricity producers and consumers. Most local grids are interconnected for reliability and commercial purposes, forming larger, more dependable networks that enhance the coordination and planning of electricity supply.

Electric power generation, transmission and distribution are part of the utilities sector. This sector includes all electric generating facilities powered by fossil fuels, including coal, petroleum or gas as the power source. Electricity are also available in the form of renewable energy such as solar and wind power.

The transmission process is usually overhead except for urban city premises. Power transformers are the main electric equipment installed for this mass transfer of bulk electricity. The distribution process can either be overhead or underground. This involves many control, protection and switching devices. This Power and Electricity Masterclass training course will feature an Overview of the Various Types of Electrical Power Generation, Systems Operations of Power Transformers, Circuit Breakers and Protection Relays.

This Coventry Academy training course will feature:

  • Conventional and unconventional method of power generation
  • The smart grid system
  • Overhead transmission lines methodology
  • Operations and functions of power transformers
  • Electricity distribution layout
  • Protection, control and switching devices at distribution level

What are the goals?

By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to understand and analyse:

  • Thermal power generation system
  • Smart grid and renewable energy
  • Importance and role of power transformers
  • Overhead and underground transmission and distribution system
  • Common protection, control and switching devices

Who is this training course for?

The Coventry Academy training course will benefit the engineers, technicians and supervisors on the operations. It will greatly benefit:

  • Electrical engineers
  • Electrical supervisors
  • Power engineers
  • Managers in-charge of electrical installations
  • Project engineers

How will this training course be presented?

This Coventry Academy training course in Dubai will utilise a variety of proven adult training techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes presentation and discussion of latest videos and technologies on smart grids and renewable energy.

Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss with the Presenter specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions. Specific goals of each participant will be discussed to ensure that their needs are fulfilled whenever practicable.
