3. Arc Flash Analysis/Study - IEEE 1584 Update - April 12, 2021 and October 25, 2021


Course #1 - Power System Analysis And Design - (Regular Price: $599)


Power System Analysis And Design starts with sound design. A proper functioning electric power distribution system is vital to safety, maintenance, troubleshooting and the efficient operation of a modern industrial plant. The power distribution system includes high voltage utility tie circuit breakers, main transformers, medium voltage switchgear, distribution transformers, motor control centers, electric motors, variable speed drives, etc. This course is designed to address all aspects of industrial power distribution systems, including system planning, equipment selection, specification and application, system grounding, protection and conformity with electrical code requirements, etc. Typical one-line and relaying diagrams will be discussed for various applications.


Course #2 - Power System Protection And Coordination - (Regular Price: $599)


The Power System Protection And Coordination section of the course will provide a practical and comprehensive description of the principles and concepts of analysis, application and operation of protection schemes for various power system elements such as feeders, transformers, motors, buses, generators, etc. The Power Systems Coordination course makes extensive use of in-class curve drawing exercises and actual case histories to familiarize trainees with the art of power systems coordination. Selection of time/current characteristics, protection, selectivity and deriving protective device settings consistent with National Electric Code and ANSI Standard requirements are emphasized in this course. This course covers the subject of power system protection from a practical perspective, and includes important functional aspects such as testing and coordination of protection systems. This course is designed for individuals who are involved with industries and utilities which depend on proper system protection for operational efficiency and minimizing damage to equipment.


Course #3 - Arc Flash Analysis/Study - IEEE 1584 Update - (Regular Price: $299)


These three Electrical Engineering Courses will demonstrate electrical engineering software Simulation and Calculations engineering course will provide students with an in-depth review of fault analysis problems in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems and provide the means for solving such problems, and discusses the impact of short-circuit fault currents on equipment selection.
