Course Overview

The failure to properly transmit, normalise and allocate electrical power from the generating source can be unsafe, and in some cases, cataclysmic, for the areas and organisations that they are a part of. Like any other industrial sector, effective operation and production dependability in transmission and supply are based on the performance of the entire organisation – from those with the simplest of assignments related to power operations right to the top of the chain command.

What topics does the “Effective Transmission & Distribution Operation” program focus on? The themes covered in this course include transmission and distribution systems, maintenance, overhead line distribution, overhead line transmission and underground line maintenance, among others.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the consciousness of knowing how effective power transmission and distribution systems accomplish their purpose and how individual components are connected and maintained, providing vital training for those involved in the transmission and distribution of electric power.


Course Objectives

Upon completing this course successfully, participants will be able to:

  • Focus on the interfaces between the people, processes, and products
  • Equips teams with knowledge necessary to realise successful solutions
  • Gather knowledge to realise project solutions and leverage Project Management and Systems Engineering roles and responsibilities
  • How to analyse and interpret the response of the power system to different scenarios
  • How to adjust the functionality of a power system by modifying its parameters
  • Create and analyse protection curves to achieve harmonisation between different bays

Training Methodology

This is an interactive training program and will consist of the following training approaches:

  • Lectures
  • Seminars
