Power system protection systems play a crucial role in establishing reliable electrical power systems. Poorly designed protection systems may result in major power failures. Due to the increasing importance of electricity, such power failures can have a serious impact on society and the economy.
Knowledge of power system protection systems is key when it comes to optimising the reliability level of electrical infrastructures. With the advances in protection and communication technology in recent decades plus the strong increase of renewable energy sources, the design and operation of power system protection systems has become ever more challenging.
Protection of Electrical Power Systems course will provide an essential introduction to the principles of power system protection. It will be hosted as online training, split over four mornings. The course covers the role of protection, why it is required, components of protection systems and their principles of operation. It goes on to provide an understanding of basic protection theory, grading principles and fault calculations.
The course covering the fundamentals of power system protection, current best practice, protection system management and new developments in protection technology. This course offers you a comprehensive guide to the principles of power system protection, an overview of the variety of equipment currently in use and under development, plus an understanding of standard operational practices across the industry.
