An Overview of Electrical Transmission and Distribution System for Non-Electrical Professionals
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Interact more effectively with other work groups involved in electricity transmission and distribution systems
- Apply knowledge of power system in regulatory work related to new electricity transmission and distribution facilities
- Understand how arc flash occurs in distribution systems and its impact, safe engineering practices, and design considerations to mitigate arc flash
- Connect with others about codes and standards applied to transmission and distribution systems
- Understand concept of line losses, their impacts on electric power systems and how to mitigate them
The course describes the fundamentals of electricity transmission and distribution in a classical power system. It describes step by step what constitutes electricity transmission and distribution, explains the types of distribution systems, grounding and bonding, arc flash and mitigations, design considerations, codes and standards, and harmonics in a typical distribution system. The course describes types of transmission systems, AC versus DC transmission, poles, towers and other components, construction of new transmission system, active and reactive losses, and loss compensation.
The course is intended to provide a clear understanding of transmission and distribution system to professionals who, although qualified in their own disciplines, may not have received formal electrical engineering training. However, the course is also designed to benefit engineers who are seeking to refresh their knowledge on electricity transmission and distribution.
- Distribution Systems Overview
- Transmission Systems Overview
- Overhead Systems for Transmission and Distribution
Who should attend?
This course is designed for individuals who are associated with power system related work but do not have direct power system background. For example, regulators, legal services, engineers from disciplines other than electrical engineering, technicians involved in power system work, professionals from oil and gas industries as well as electricity export/import market specialists will find this course to be useful. In addition, professionals who need to refresh their current experience and knowledge of electricity transmission and distribution will also benefit from the course.
