This Power System Protection training course covers the fundamentals of protecting a power system against hazards posed by abnormal system conditions, such as short-circuit faults. An overview of the protective devices available for application, both industrial and utility, is presented along with typical means of implementing these devices. Both electromechanical and digital relays are discussed. Fuse selection and coordination is explored in depth. Utility-specific protective devices, such as reclosers and sectionalizers, are presented, and utility-specific protection strategies, such as fuse-saving and fuse-blowing are covered. This Power System Protection training course allows the delegates to apply techniques learned in this course to realistic protection scenarios.
This Coventry Academy training course will feature:
By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to:
This training course is designed for utility, plant, or consulting engineers and technicians involved in the protection of transmission, distribution, or generation facilities. If you are beginning a career or assignment in these areas, this training course will be of value to you. Those designing protection schemes, or coordinating and setting overcurrent relays and fuses will especially benefit from this course. Topics will begin at the fundamental level and move to more advanced content as the training course progresses. Prerequisites include a basic understanding of vector algebra and a familiarity with the voltage, current, watt, var, and phase angle measurement terms used in three-phase power systems. Knowledge of symmetrical components and sequence networks is also beneficial.
This Coventry Academy training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
This Coventry Academy training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. These methods include workshops where attendees practice solving problems (bring a scientific calculator), case studies where concepts covered are applied to real-world situations, and simulations and animations to visually illustrate what would otherwise be abstract concepts in a novel and intuitive manner.
