An Overview of Electrical Transmission and Distribution System for Non-Electrical Professionals
le 12 août 2024
Code : 0801-WEBM24
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Interact more effectively with other work groups involved in electricity transmission and distribution systems
- Apply knowledge of power systems in regulatory work related to new electricity transmission and distribution facilities
- Understand how arc flash occurs in distribution systems and its impact, safe engineering practices, and design considerations to mitigate arc flash
- Connect with others about codes and standards applied to transmission and distribution systems
- Understand the concept of line losses, their impacts on electric power systems and how to mitigate them
The course describes the fundamentals of electricity transmission and distribution in a classical power system. It defines what constitutes electricity transmission and distribution step by step. It explains the types of distribution systems, grounding and bonding, arc flash and mitigations, design considerations, codes and standards, and harmonics in a typical distribution system. The course describes types of transmission systems, AC versus DC transmission, poles, towers and other components, construction of new transmission systems, active and reactive losses, and loss compensation.
This course is intended to provide a clear understanding of transmission and distribution systems to professionals who, although qualified in their own disciplines, may have yet to receive formal electrical engineering training. However, this course is also designed to benefit engineers seeking to refresh their electricity transmission and distribution knowledge.
- Distribution Systems Overview
- Transmission Systems Overview
- Overhead Systems for Transmission and Distribution
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for individuals associated with power system-related work but do not have a direct power system background. For example, regulators, legal services, engineers from disciplines other than electrical engineering, technicians involved in power system work, professionals from oil and gas industries, and electricity export/import market specialists will find this course helpful. In addition, professionals who need to refresh their current experience and knowledge of electricity transmission and distribution will also benefit from this course.
