2 Day Course: Introduction to Modern Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems -


The "Introduction
to Modern Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems"

conference has been added to's

Even when a utility company successfully recruits a young engineer, two
years or more may pass before he or she can work independently. Why?
Because college graduates lack practical knowledge of how a utility
company actually works. They are unfamiliar with management aspects of
the business. As a result, even the most gifted young engineers must
spend months informally "learning the ropes" before they can become true

This course will substantially accelerate that acclimatization process
by providing future project engineers with a basic knowledge of applied
engineering in a utility company. It will teach them the project
management aspects of modern Transmission and Distribution (T&D) systems
as well.

This is the same "real-life" orientation a new utility engineer might
receive from his or her supervisors and co-workers. Only it has been
structured to provide a rapid and comprehensive overview, with a close
connection to real-life specifics, plus exercises and practice sessions
to ensure better retention.

What You Will Learn

  • What the main components of modern transmission and distribution
    systems are, their application and arrangement
  • How to perform various calculations used in T&D system design and
  • How to use the tools and principles of modern project management to
    ensure overall project success

You Will Also Learn

  • How power systems are arranged, their main elements, and the place of
    each element in the overall structure
  • What substation consists of, the function of each piece of equipment
  • The role of protection systems and the criteria they must need
  • How to analyze the reliability of power supply systems
  • The advantages and disadvantages of various substation switching
  • How to select substation equipment
  • Types of transmission power lines and the main steps of their design
  • Why reactive power and voltage in T&D systems need to be regulated,
    the necessary equipment, and how it should be selected
  • and more...
