Course Summary

Why Choose this Training Course?

This training course covers the process of planning an electrical utility distribution system to assure adequacy, reliability, and economy. The course begins with an overview of the distribution system and its basic equipment. Next, the planning process is explored, step-by-step, emphasizing the importance of each step in achieving the desired outcome. An in-depth view of engineering economics is included to assure cost-effectiveness of the capital-intensive infrastructure.  Since the planning process is necessitated due to changes in load, the process of performing and interpreting load forecasts is investigated. Finally, means of quantifying and measuring reliability will be presented so the reliability of the distribution can be properly assessed.
