Overview

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

  • Plan your system and select equipment for it
  • Benefit from a clear understanding of all aspects of power distribution system
  • Apply the electrical code to your projects
  • Manage issues such as load estimating, voltage selection, shortage circuit studies and power protection
  • Increase efficiency of your distribution system by applying your new knowledge of the power distribution system and equipment

Description
Electric power distribution system plays an important role in the efficient operation of a modern industrial plant. Such a system includes high voltage circuit breakers, switchgear, transformers, motor control centers, electric motors, variable speed drives, etc. A trouble-free electrical system is essential for an interruption-free plant operation.

This course will cover all aspects of power distribution, including system planning, equipment selection and application, system grounding, protection and conformity with electrical code requirements, etc. Participants will work under instructor guidance to develop a power distribution system single line diagram for a typical industrial plant.

Course Outline:

  • System planning applicable to industrial plants
  • Short circuit studies for equipment rating and relaying
  • Load flow calculations
  • System neutral grounding
  • Review of major equipment
  • Workshop - development of single line diagrams
  • Protective devices and relay setting

Who Should Attend
Electrical Power Distribution Engineers Electrical Power System Engineers Plant Managers Plant Engineers from all types of industries, particularly Chemical and Petroleum Large Institutional Power Distribution Engineers Consulting Engineers Technical Personnel involved in the Design, Engineering, Operation and Maintenance of Power Distribution System in Industrial Plants
