Overview

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply your knowledge of the fundamentals of the utility power supply system and power quality
  • Recognize the important operating characteristics of major power components
  • Improve substation grounding
  • Discriminate between the criteria governing the application of overcurrent and overvoltage protective devices
  • Implement better start-up and regular maintenance of electrical installations

Description
A properly planned and designed substation is essential for the reliable operation of a power system network. A high voltage substation is comprised of switching equipment, transformers, reactors, var compensators, protection, control, and automation and communication.

This course covers all aspects of high and medium voltage substation design, including regulatory and environmental requirements, general design considerations, and the application of switching and power equipment, fault calculations, safe grounding design, protection/control, automation and communication, and maintenance considerations.
