Fundamentals of Electrical Power System Protection


Course Description

  • Power system protection is one of the most important aspects of the electrical power industry. Without protection, any stem fails. So it is imperative that safety and protection be given utmost importance to avoid catastrophes.
  • This Fundamentals of Power System Protection course is designed to help attendees to understand the fundamentals of electric power protection, so that they can choose appropriate protective devices/measures for different components, interpret different protection systems in their plant.

Course Objectives

  • An understanding of the fundamental principles of power system protection remains essential for many practising engineers. Through a           broad introduction, and more detailed sessions, participants will:
  • Develop an understanding of the most common types of protection
  • Learn how to apply the theory to a range of practical examples
  • Comprehend the jargon when specifying protection and control equipment
  • Understand how to determine relay settings, and/or evaluate systems designed by others.

Who Should Attend?

  • Electrical/Plant Engineers
  • Supervisors
  • Technicians, Electricians with responsibility for the application, commissioning and/or maintenance of electrical protective equipment used on industrial electrical power systems
