OPEN LEARNING Introduction to the Protection of Transmission and Distribution Systems

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.

 

Advantages of this Open Learning Training

Each module is divided into easily-identifiable sections:

  • The course incorporates quizzes to help you check your progress
  • On successful completion, candidates receive an industry recognised certificate detailing the modules completed and the marks achieved.

On completing the training, you will be able to:

  •  Implement suitable methods
  •  On successful completion, candidates receive an industry recognised certificate detailing the modules completed and the marks achieved.

Who is concerned?

The course is suitable for technical generation engineering staff, new graduates and unit operators: any staff where knowledge of protection is an issue.
