Why Attend This Training Course?
Power System Analyses are an essential part of electrical power system design. Load flow analysis, short circuit analysis, and protection coordination are necessary to verify that the electrical system including the system components, are correctly specified to perform as intended, withstand expected stress, and be protected against failures. Protection of Electrical Networks first discusses network structures and grounding systems together with problems that can occur in networks. It goes on to cover current and voltage transformers, protection functions, circuit breakers and fuses. Electrical Networks Protection & Coordination training course contains theoretical and practical information on the transmission and distribution protection schemes utilizing advanced and highly reliable technology. Issues surrounding power quality and their effect on power systems will also be addressed in the course.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.
