Substations are the key assets in any power system and serve as important nodes in a transmission and distribution network. Substations thus handle multiple voltages in a given location and link two or more systems of different voltages. In the first part of this two part certificate series, the participants were given a thorough understanding of the basic principles of substation design, configuration of a substation, the specification/selection of equipment based on a selected...

Depending on the functions performed by a substation, the configuration and complexity can be quite varied. The skill of the designer is to anticipate the present and future needs that the substation will cater to, select appropriate design configuration and calculate the ratings of main equipment such as busbars, transformers and switchgear so as to ensure trouble free service over a number of decades. Sufficient thought should be given to the need for maintaining critical substation...

Reducing the energy costs at a facility must surely be one of the most effective and achievable strategies for lowering operating costs. This course gives you the practical tools to identify and implement programs and projects to reduce energy consumption in the most effective and practical ways. You will be provided with the skills and latest knowledge on proven methods of making real savings in your energy bills. You can initiate such programs as soon as you wish, and start saving...

A practical program in power distribution, focusing on medium voltage (1kV- 36kV) power considerations, switchgear, power cables, transformers, power factor correction, earthing, lightning protection and network studies.

You will gain technical know-how in these areas not covered by university or college programs. At the end of this program participants will be able to:

  • Understand practical power distribution fundamentals
  • Determine short-circuit ratings quickly and...

Diesel generating plants have an important role in power plants as well as in industries and commercial installations to meet continuous and emergency standby power requirements. A good knowledge of basic operation principles, layout requirements, associated components and maintenance practices for diesel power plants help the career development of many engineers and technicians in today’s world. Whatever your role in industry - designer, purchase engineer, installation contractor or...

There is a growing shortage, and hence opportunity, for Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) technicians, technologists and engineers in the oil and gas industry. This is due to an increasing need for higher technology methods of obtaining and processing oil and gas as it is a finite declining resource. The price of oil is heading upwards steadily, thus making personnel and their associated oil and gas expertise in these industries even more valuable. The technical challenges of...

Any power system is prone to 'faults' (also called short-circuits), which occur mostly as a result of insulation failure and sometimes due to external causes. When a fault occurs, the normal functioning of the system gets disturbed. The high current resulting from a fault can stress the electrical conductors and connected equipment thermally and electro-dynamically. Arcs at the fault point can cause dangerous or even fatal burn injuries to operating and maintenance workers...

Switchgear (and circuit breakers) and transformers are critical components in electrical distribution systems and their operation significantly affects the overall performance of the system. This course will discuss the application, installation, maintenance and testing issues relating to medium and high voltage switchgear, circuit breakers and transformers. Low voltage switchgear will also be covered and you will receive a thorough grounding in switchgear theory and standards. You will gain...

This course covers the requirements laid down in the standard AS/NZS 3000, commonly known as the Australia - New Zealand Wiring Rules. For those installations covered in the scope of this standard, its provisions are mandatory and must be followed. Any engineer involved in planning and design of electrical systems, their installation or maintenance must have a clear idea about the various requirements contained in the standard.

The primary purpose of this standard, like many of its...

Overview

Electrical safety is an important issue for those working on electrical facilities in utility networks and large industrial installations. A number of serious accidents including fatalities occur every year due to accidents involving electricity resulting in huge financial losses and wasted man-hours. Arc flashes in electrical equipment are now considered one of the major causes of electrical accidents even surpassing the well known hazards of electric shock. Avoiding arc flash...

How can an e-learning course be interactive?

Boredom can be a real danger, however, we use an interactive approach to our e-Learning – with live sessions instead of recordings.  The webinar software allows everyone to interact and involves participants in group work; including hands-on exercises with simulation software and remote laboratories where possible.  You can communicate with text messages, or live VoIP speech, or can even draw on the whiteboard during the sessions.
