This course aims at providing participants with fundamental understanding of power system protection and design. It involves an introduction to power-system fault calculations, review of protection principles and relaying with reference to relevant international standards and a study of fundamental practices in generator protection, transformer protection, line protection, motor protection and pilot relaying.
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
Engineers, technical managers and technicians working in the electrical power industry. Principally energy utilities, manufacturers and services companies.
Course topics include: Introduction to power system faults, Short-circuit current calculations in AC systems, Review of standards, Protection principles, Relay Technology, Overcurrent Protection, Unit protection, Distance protection, Transformer/Generator/Motor protection, Industrial power system protection, Control and limitation of short-circuit currents. Morning sessions are lectures and worked examples, with afternoon sessions dedicated to hands-on experiments and power system protection case study using ETAP software
