Postgraduate Electricity Supply Training Course (PESTC)
These courses have been specifically designed to provide the underpinning skills and knowledge that have been identified in the competency standards for electricity supply engineers.
QUTeX Real World Futures
The law and ethics of AI – How will the law respond to the rise of AI systems, and the areas where law and ethics that will be challenged by machine learning and big data systems?
PESTC: Overhead Line Design - Mechanical (EEP217)
The unit will step through the Overhead line design process; in particular how the electrical, mechanical and structural aspects of design are combined to produce a sound engineering system.
PESTC: Introducation to Substation Design (EEP245)
The unit aims to teach you the basics of initial substation site selection, developing economical layouts to perform the required network switching and/or bulk supply functions, from civil through to circuitry design, and on to commissioning.
PESTC: Condition Monitoring of High Voltage Plant (EEP203)
This course gives an overview of the monitoring of the condition of High Voltage plant (mainly switchgear and power transformers) with an emphasis on the ageing and degradation of the electrical insulation materials.
PESTC: Circuit Breakers - Switchgear (EEP244)
This unit provides an understanding of the principles behind the operation of circuit breakers for transmission and distribution of electric power.
PESTC: Distance Protection (EEP241)
Protection of the power system is necessary to disconnect faulted plant from the system, to minimise disruption of supply to customers and to maximise safety for the public and electricity industry employees alike.
PESTC: Power System Load Flow Analysis (EEP204)
This unit recognises that load flow analysis forms the basis of other power system analysis studies.
