Basic Power System Metering
Mar 25 - 26, 2019 /
Course Code: 0307-WEB19
This course introduces the fundamentals of metering, such as terminology and basic principles of meters. It will provide an understanding of power calculations for single and 3 phase power metering, including vector mathematics, instrument transformers, three-phase wiring methods.
Meter instruments, meter diagrams and standards, and the inter-workings of traditional metering mechanisms are introduced. Various samples of single phase 3 wire, 3 phase 3 wire, 3 phase 4 wire are examined. The parts of the various electromechanical and solid state meters are discussed.
Who Should Attend
Managers, Engineers, Technicians/Technologists, Students enrolled in advanced electrical courses. An understanding of the more advanced fundamentals of electricity is required.
Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time
