Power System Analysis and Design

Power System Analysis and Design

This 2-Day Power System Analysis And Design training course is designed for electrical power engineers working in industrial, commercial and institutional power systems.

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.



Learn industrial power systems design principals, planning and analysis. This Power System Analysis And Design course is designed for electrical power engineers to review, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of power system design, operation and troubleshooting.

Advance your knowledge and skills in system planning, equipment selection, specification and application. Learn and understand important aspects of power distribution system design steps. Improve your knowledge of how to operate your industrial power system efficiently, securely and safely.
