This in-depth course covers the basic elements for designing and applying power system protection principles for medium voltage distribution systems:
The course participants will, at the end of this course, be able to:
Analyse any electrical power system for balanced three-phase and single-phase to-ground fault conditions
Design and apply unit and non-unit protection schemes to any component of a distribution voltage power system such as overhead power lines, motors, power transformers and substation busbars
Apply and carry out discrimination and co-ordinating principles in the calculation of fully graded protection relay settings for any protection scheme on MV distribution systems
Understand, design and apply effective and non-effective earthing to electrical power systems, and
Apply any of these design and application principles to an inter-connected power system
The need for power system protection
Power system grounding
Instruments transformers and the application
Types of relays and relay technologies
Fuses and their use
Grading of overcurrent and earth fault protection schemes
Protection schemes for feeders, transformers, motors, generators and bushbars, and
Commissioning and maintenance of protection schemes
Graduated Engineers and Technologists
Upon completion of this course, you will receive 3 CPD Credits under validation number SAIEE-2215-V
