Stephen Brooks is a Chartered Electrical engineer who has worked in the electrical power utility industry for over 30 years as a design engineer, commissioning engineer and construction project manager.
This module has been written to teach non-engineers the basics of electrical power engineering, and will also act as a useful revision tool for electrical graduate engineers or those engineers new to the industry.
The course uses detailed illustrations & simple explanations to convey the topics involved.
Future modules will develop these basic engineering ideas further and use them to show how an electrical power utility system is designed, constructed, tested and operated.
Who this course is for:
- people without an engineering background
- graduate electrical engineers
- school pupils
Stephen Brooks is a Chartered Electrical Engineer with over 30 years experience working in the electrical utility industry, starting as an electrical design engineer before moving into the construction field as a senior project manager building high voltage substations for electrical utilities, consultants & large contractors all over the world.
I now want to use this knowledge to teach others about the lessons learned during my career and to pass on my experiences to encourage others to join the electrical power industry.
