We offer a series of three Electrical Engineering Courses which is designed to help electrical engineers understand electrical power systems as they apply to buildings and complexes that are production-oriented. This course will address issues such as short circuit studies, voltage drop calculations, electrical equipment ratings and selection criteria, and power systems grounding. The Power Systems Coordination part of the course makes extensive use of in-class curve drawing exercises and actual case histories to familiarize trainees with the art of power systems coordination. EasyPower Electrical Engineering Software will be be used by the instructor to solve several example problems. NOTE: Course Includes FULL Demo Software License.
The Power System Design part of the course Will Teach Students How To:
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.
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. The course also highlights the differences in the computational approaches recommended in IEEE and IEC standards. EasyPower Electrical Engineering Software will be demonstrate for performing fault analysis will be used by the presenter to solve example problems.
These Electrical Engineering Courses are designed for plant and design electrical engineers and plant supervisors, inspectors, regulators, safety officers, technicians, electricians, who are responsible for the reliable operation and maintenance of industrial, commercial and insitutional electric power distribution systems. Plant, facility, and corporate electrical engineers dealing with one or more company distribution systems and consulting and utility engineers dealing with clients' systems. Consultants, architect-engineers will also find this course very beneficial.
