Refresh your knowledge of the industrial and utility system protection techniques including fault analysis and overvoltage assessment. Develop your own relay settings and thoroughly understand the philosophy of protective systems. Study actual cases illustrating various techniques in present use and highlighting particular approaches used by experienced system designers. Enhance your experience with power system protection problems generally faced, and solutions successfully adopted, by industry. Understand how to apply microprocessor-based multifunction relays for the protection of various power system equipment and apparatus.
Power System Protection Training teaches students how to make sure that downstream devices (breakers/fuses) should activate before upstream devices and therefore protect their electrical systems. By doing this, it minimizes the portion of the system affected by a fault or other disturbance. At the substation level, feeder breakers should trip before the main. Likewise, downstream panel breakers should trip before the substation feeder supplying the panel.
DER Integrated Power System Protection and Coordination of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires a good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment. This DER integrated Power System Protection and Coordination Training Course provides 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 System Protection And Coordination Training course starts with an overview of power system fundamentals, design and short circuit calculations which lead to the understanding of protection scheme requirements and their applications. Protection requirements for industrial plants, cogeneration, and interconnection with the utility power system are explained in detail. 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.
The Power System Protection And Coordination Engineering Training Course:
SESSION 1: POWER SYSTEM FAULTS
SESSION 2: POWER SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS
SESSION 3: DER, RENEWABLES AND BULK POWER INTEGRATION
SESSION 4: FAULT STUDIES AND DER
SESSION 5: COMPONENTS OF POWER SYSTEM PROTECTION SCHEMES
SESSION 6: CURRENT (CTS) & VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS (VTS)
SESSION 7: COORDINATION OF ELECTRICAL PROTECTION SCHEMES
SESSION 8: UTILITY AND DISTRIBUTION FEEDER PROTECTION
SESSION 9: TRANSFORMER PROTECTION
SESSION 10: TRANSMISSION LINES PROTECTION
This part of the course will examine the protection required for main feeders coming from the distribution substation and the branches that feed local area distribution. There will be a review of protection requirements for lines outside the substation and then deal with upstream protection requirements for relays that protect the main feeders at the substation.
SESSION 11: SUBSTATION TRANSFORMER PROTECTION
A review of substation transformers and required protection settings, including how to deal with transformer inrush and pickup current. How to protect a substation transformer and how to coordinate protection with upstream and downstream equipment.
SESSION 12: DISTRIBUTION TRANSFORMER PROTECTION
This part of the course will deal with transformer loading capabilities, withstand curves, fusing ratio and the need to limit fault energy.
