Fundamentals of Modern Substation Equipment, Protection and Controls

35 Professional Development Hours

After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Apply a clear understanding of needs to use power conditioning equipment to your substations
  • Assess the modern substation system, equipment, protection and automation
  • Benefit from your knowledge of how substation equipment operates
  • Read and relate single line drawings and electrical schematics to substation equipment protection and control system
  • Recognize the latest technology in electrical substations

Knowledge of state-of-the-art substation equipment, protection and controls is a prerequisite to making decisions in design, construction and operation of high and medium voltage substations. This practical course covers medium and high voltage substations, including industrial, utility, commercial and institutional and introduces you to the up-to-date equipment that makes up an electric substation. Learn how each type of equipment operates, and protection and control equipment and systems that determine successful and safe substation operation.

You will also learn practical aspects of design, construction and operation of power transformers, voltage regulators, power circuit breakers, circuit switchers and capacitor banks.
