It is recommended that participants have at least a Bachelor of Enginering degree and have a basic understanding of protection.
These courses are designed for technical professionals working in transmission or distribution network operator companies, consultancy organisations, in large industries or government organisations involved in design, engineering, commissioning or maintenance of protection systems. It is recommended that participants have at least a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
In a series of three courses, the fundamentals of power system protection are presented:
- Introduction to power system protection (2-days)
- Overcurrent & earth fault protection (2-days)
- Differential and impedance protection (3-days)
A very “hands-on” approach is applied whereby the concepts are taught. Understanding is then strengthened by real world examples. Interaction is encouraged between participants and the presenters, to underpin the learning objectives.
An understanding of the fundamental principles of power system protection remains essential for many practising engineers. Through a broad introduction, and more detailed sessions, participants will:
- Develop an understanding of the most common types of protection
- Learn how to apply the theory to a range of practical examples
- Comprehend the jargon when specifying protection and control equipment
- Understand how to determine relay settings, and/or evaluate systems designed by others
