Course Overview

This course includes content that covers Power System Design, Short Circuit Analysis, Coordination Studies, and Power Factor and Power System Harmonic Analysis. It is designed to address all facets of industrial power generation and distribution systems, including system planning, equipment selection, specification and application, system grounding, harmonic control, and protection and conformity with electrical code requirements. This program will also cover many in-class examples and problems for a hands-on learning experience.

Why is it important to study ‘Fault Limiting, PFC, Harmonic Control & Protection Design of Electrical Power Systems’? A correctly functioning electric power distribution system is imperative for the maintenance, troubleshooting and competent operation of any power plant. The power distribution system contains high voltage utility circuit breakers, distribution transformers, main transformers, motor control centres, voltage switchgear, motors, and variable speed drives. Therefore, all individuals who are involved in working with such critical equipment must be aware of its uses and implications in their work environments.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the consciousness of knowing the importance of maintenance procedures for Fault Limiting, PFC, Harmonic Control & Protection Design of Electrical Power Systems, as well as how to go about planning and carrying out the maintenance activities efficiently.
