Our 24-hour (4 Days) Power System Engineering Course is actually a series of three power system analysis, protection coordination and modeling and calculations courses, which is designed to help both junior and experienced electrical engineers understand electrical power systems as they apply to industrial, commercial and institutional buildings and facilities 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. NOTE: Course Includes FULL Demo Power System Analysis Software License.
Course #1 - Power System Analysis And Design
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.
The Power System Design part of the course Will Teach Students How To:
Course #2 - Power System Protection And Coordination
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.
The Power System Protection And Coordination Engineering Training Course:
Course #3 - Power System Modeling and Calculations
Our Power System Modeling 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. A commercially available software program for performing fault analysis will be used by the presenter to solve example problems.
The Power System Modeling and Calculations Training course will analyze all aspects related to the:
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.
This Power System Analysis, Protection Coordination and Modeling and Calculations course is designed for utility, industrial, commercial and institutional power system electrical engineering personnel, electrical consulting engineers, as well as electrical design engineers, who are responsible for the reliable design, engineering and operation and 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.
