This course provides a solid grounding in the fundamental engineering principles that dictate the extent and composition of protection within a power system. Using minimal mathematical treatment, it introduces the basic vocabulary to describe protection issues, using schematics to demonstrate the application of protection in transmission and distribution networks.
Each module is divided into easily-identifiable sections:
On completing the training, you will be able to:
The course is suitable for technical generation engineering staff, new graduates and unit operators: any staff where knowledge of protection is an issue.
There are no prerequisites for this training course.
