Course Overview

The safety of low, medium and high voltage power systems requires an awareness of system faults and their detection, as well as their protected disconnection from the power system.

This course offers a thorough and methodical description of the theories and principles of operation and application of protection schemes for a variety of power system elements such as feeders, transformers, motors, buses, generators, etc.

It looks at power system faults and protection scheme requirements for the discovery and managed the dismissal of these faults. It also discusses protection systems from a practical perspective and includes important functional aspects such as testing and coordination of protection systems. The course is specifically designed for industries and utility corporations who depend on proper system protection for operational efficiency.

How has this training course on “Modern Power System Analysis and Protective Relaying” been designed? This program has been tailored to provide a clear and perfect understanding of modern power system protection schemes and devices including protection relays, fuses, circuit breakers, and other protective devices.

Protection systems play a significant role in efficiently running plant operations, utility switching, maintenance programs, industry load transfer, and investment strategies in modern-day power systems. The outcome is to minimise system outages and to keep the maintenance and repair costs at reasonable prices.

This Zoe training course will empower you with in-depth knowledge of the basic industrial and utility system protection techniques used in fault analysis, and the ability to improve the protection of your electrical system against faults and overvoltages.
