Why Choose this Training Course?

This highly informative Power System Analysis training course covers the essential elements of power system analysis, both from a theoretical perspective and more importantly, from a practical viewpoint. Methods that are often covered as abstract mathematical procedures, such as phasors, per-unit and symmetrical components, are presented in a straightforward and understandable manner. Modeling and analysis is viewed in a real-world sense, not as simply a step-by-step procedure. After completing this Power System Analysis training course, you will have an intuitive feel of how the power system behaves and how it needs to be analyzed under both normal and contingency conditions.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • Review of phasors, per-unit and three-phase power concepts
  • Modeling information for transmission lines, transformers, generators, and loads
  • Power flow analysis and system operation
  • Short circuit analysis including symmetrical components
  • Transient stability analysis

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Perform three-phase power system calculations using phasor analysis and the per-unit system
  • Model key power system components, such as transmission lines, transformers, generators, and loads
  • Understand power flow analysis and know the basics of operating a power system
  • Use symmetrical component theory and sequence networks to analyze short-circuit faults
  • Understand the equal-area criterion for transient stability

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is designed for utility, plant, or consulting engineers and technicians involved in transmission or distribution system protection, planning, operations, or engineering. If you are beginning a career or assignment in these areas, this course will be of value to you. Those doing fault studies, maintaining computer fault study or power flow databases, or coordinating and setting overcurrent relays and fuses will especially benefit from this course.  Topics will begin at the fundamental level and move to more advanced content as the course progresses. Prerequisites include a basic understanding of vector algebra and a familiarity with the voltage, current, watt, var, and phase angle measurement terms used in three-phase power systems.

This AZTech training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Engineers and technicians new to the power industry
  • Intermediate-level engineers and technicians working in the planning, design, and operation of power systems
  • Professionals involved with the generation, transmission, distribution, or utilization of electric power
  • Individuals working on integrating renewable energy resources into the existing power grid
  • Practitioners interested in modernizing and optimizing the performance of the power system

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. These methods include workshops where attendees practice solving problems (bring a scientific calculator), case studies where concepts covered are applied to real-world situations, and simulations and animations to visually illustrate what would otherwise be abstract concepts in a novel and intuitive manner.
