The Power System Modeling and Calculations Training course will analyze all aspects related to the:
A severe short circuit fault in your power system can have catastrophic consequences.This makes short circuit study training fundamental. Fault levels vary from system to system, and location to location. Our training will help you to calculate the maximum available short circuit current at various points throughout the system. Calculated values are then used to evaluate the application of protective devices, and to develop circuit breaker trip settings, which is part of a Power System Coordination Study.
The reliability and safety of electric power distribution systems depend on accurate and thorough knowledge of short-circuit fault currents that can be present, and on the ability of protective devices to satisfactorily interrupt these currents. Knowledge of the computational methods of power system analysis is essential to engineers responsible for planning, design, operation, and troubleshooting of distribution systems. Such knowledge is necessary to determine the interrupting requirements of circuit breakers and fuses, the mechanical and thermal requirements of devices exposed to fault currents, and to perform protection and coordination studies. A full and complete understanding of short-circuit fault currents is essential for the proper and safe coordination of power system coordination and arc flash mitigation.
This two-day 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.
Upon completion of this course, the student shall be able to:
This course is suggested for plant electrical engineers who are responsible for the planning, design, operation, and maintenance of power systems and/or selection of equipment used in industrial, commercial and institutional power distribution systems. Consultants, architect-engineers and corporate facility design engineers will also find this course very beneficial.
