Electrical Faults and Power System Protection Basics
le 26 août 2024
Code : 0801-WEBM24
After participating in this course, you will:
- Be knowledgeable of the fundamentals of electrical faults in power systems and protections
- Interact more effectively with other work groups involved in electric power system protection and relaying
- Apply knowledge of power system protection in regulatory work related to electric facilities construction and operation
Faults in electric power systems are common, and often they are complex in nature. This course provides an overview of electrical faults in power systems and why they occur. It explains the types of faults that often occur in electricity generation, transmission and distribution systems and the damages they may cause to an electric power system. It also explains the impact of electrical faults and electric shock on the human body when exposed to them.
In addition to explaining the types of faults, this course describes the various types of protective devices used in electric power systems designed to identify and isolate electrical faults to minimize the damage.
This course is intended to provide a clear understanding of electrical faults in power systems to professionals who, although qualified in their disciplines, may not have received specific training related to power system faults and protections. Electrical faults are complex, but the course avoids rigorous mathematical analysis to provide a more practical overview of electrical faults and protection systems.
- Power System Faults and Protections
- Faults and Power System Stability
