Overview

Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

9:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern

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

  • gain understanding of the elements of a power distribution system
  • enhance power quality of your non-utility power generation
  • describe the close relationship between planning and operations
  • increase power reliability of your system with the knowledge of the impact on it of the electrical power distribution system
  • become familiar with power protection needs of the electrical distribution systems
  • gain new knowledge about power substation, grounding, system and distribution automation and demand side management

Description
Reliability, power quality and interrelationship between operations and planning are some of the concerns of the employers in the power distribution field. This course presents a comprehensive overview of the elements of power distribution systems and then deals with the major concerns and issues. It also covers grounding, electrical system protection distribution automation and non-utility generation, Future trends, particularly relating to open access, are also discussed.

You are expected to bring specific problems or questions which will be dealt with during the appropriate sessions or panel discussion.
