  • Apply knowledge of power system in regulatory work related to electric facilities construction and operation

The course explains the fundamental principles of electric power system. It describes step by step about the electricity fundamentals, what constitutes an electric power system, how it works, electricity generation types, active and reactive power and power system losses. The course also describes single and three phase configuration of power generation, transmission and distribution, balanced and unbalanced power and the concept of power flow studies.

The course is intended to provide a clear understanding of electricity fundamentals and electric power 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 of electricity basics and power system fundamentals.

Course Outline:

  • Electricity basics
  • What constitutes a power system
  • Active and reactive power
