Power system Protection and Control (P&C) of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment. This course is ideal for engineers shifting into the field of Protection and Control. This program starts with a thorough overview of power system fundamentals, design approach and short circuit calculations principles which lead to the understanding of protection scheme requirements and its applications.
Protection requirements for industrial plants, cogeneration, and interconnection with utility power system are explained in detail. This course covers the subject of power system protection from a practical perspective, and includes important functional specs such as testing and coordination of protection systems. This course is designed for individuals who are involved with industries and utilities to get up to speed and to learn how to design and protect electrical systems.
