This training program is designed to provide participants an introduction to the selection and coordination of the protective devices for power systems. The course contains specific examples, with practical emphasis on coordination of protective relays and devices to achieve the desired balance between protection and continuity of service. The course also contains a brief section on the use of computers for analysing complex systems.
The purpose of this course is to provide an understanding to the overall objective of protective relaying system. At the conclusion of this course, the participants will have the required understanding of the, general applications, philosophies and purposes for the design, calibration, setting and testing of protective devices.
At the end of this training program, participants will be able:
- To learn how to prevent damage to equipment and circuits.
- To prevent hazards to the public and utility personnel.
- To maintain a high level of service by preventing power interruptions when possible and minimizing their effects when they do occur.
- To understand the various types of faults and nature of their causes.
- To know the available tools to use for fault analysis.
- To determine the need for a protective relaying system both in regards to specific equipment areas and for the overall distribution system
Power Systems engineers and personnel, Utilities Engineers/Technicians, Personnel involved in the selection, installation and maintenance of Power Systems, Technical Managers, Maintenance Managers, and Maintenance Engineers/Technicians etc.
Lectures complemented with hands-on simulation exercises using relevant equipment and simulators
