Why Attend This Training Course?
The continuity and quality of electricity delivered safely and economically by today’s and future’s electrical power networks are important for both developed and developing economies. The correct modelling of power system equipment and correct fault analysis of electrical networks are pre-requisite to ensuring safety and they play a critical role in the identification of economic network investment. The technology described throughout this course will always be required for the safe and economic design and operation of electrical power systems. By describing present methods of Electrical Fault analysis, causes, detection and remedies in Electrical Networks and Distribution Cables, particularly with the aid of a personal computer and Power System Simulator. The approach is designed to develop participant’s thinking process, enabling them to reach a sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to electrical faults, while motivating their interest in the electrical power industry. The course includes many case studies describing present day practical applications.

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.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This training course is intended for Junior & senior electrical engineers, who work in operation, maintenance, protection, control & analysis of utilities & industries electrical networks.
