This course equips participants with a comprehensive understanding of sophisticated high voltage transmission and distribution protection systems. By building on course, EEP211 "Basic Power System Protection," this program delivers a complete reference for the protection of rotating plant motors, including synchronous generators and large induction motors. Designed for those who work daily with protection design and people working in associated areas of transmission system design, this course covers the application of modern microprocessor-based relay technology and older electronic and electromechanical relays. With a focus on maximising safety for the general public and electricity industry employees.
Evolve with QUTeX
With a balance of theoretical and practical examples, this course creates a shared learning environment for participants to advance their knowledge of high voltage transmission and distribution protection systems. This course is delivered via intensive face-to-face delivery of core content, notes, further readings, and collaborative dialogue. Using a discursive and case study approach, this course encourages participants to be active in discussions, facilitating an ongoing interaction with peers and university/industry experts. By utilising real-world examples and assessments, this course gives students the ability to confidently apply theoretical protection systems principles in their daily working life.
Who should participate?
This course is designed to advance the understanding of engineers working within the power sector. Developing their knowledge of current electrical practices used in advanced power system protection. It is a requirement of this course that you have a sound understanding of electrical transmission technology, an adequate level of design computation knowledge, and a working knowledge of power system engineering. While there are no pre‐requisites for this course, participants would benefit from completing courses EEP211 "Basic Power System Protection" and EEP205 "Power System Fault Calculations.'
This course will benefit;
- Planning Engineers, with identify difficulties in protecting various power system configurations under review;
- Maintenance Engineers ensuring that system protections are not compromised when a plant is removed from service during maintenance;
- Circuitry Design Engineers to ensure that the implementation of protective schemes provides optimum performance; and
- Protection Application Engineers to identify protection implications and ensure protection scheme design and relay setting principles provide the necessary levels of speed, security, reliability, and safety.
This course includes two assignments, analysis steps will be introduced progressively via notes, readings, and real-world examples to assist students in the completion of these projects.
