Our 12-Hour (2 Day) Power System Analysis - Essentials training course is an abbreviated vesion of our 30-Hour (5 Day) Power System Fundamentals, Short Circuit Study and Protective Device Coordination and Arc Flash Analysis/Study Course. 

This live online instructor-led course allows students to review the essentials involved in Power System Analysis and introduces students to the fundamentals of power system analysis and design which then leads to a general discussion of the principals of Short Circuit Study and Protective Device Coordination and how that subject is essential to understanding the role that Arc Flash Analysis/Study plays in protecting workers and equipment.

 

WHO should attend

This 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.
