Electrical Power Equipment
What you'll learn
- Understand why the electrical power network looks the way it does
- Know all about the equipment used in the power network
- Be able to design a basic electrical power network
- Understand electrical clearances and how they are used to design equipments
- Know how to calculate output voltages and currents using the transformer turns ratio
- Know how electrical discrimination works and how it clears the fault by keeping the healthy electrical system connected
- Know the difference between insulators and conductors
- Understand how the circuit breaker types change as the voltages and currents increase
- Understand how a transmission overhead line is designed using electrical clearances
- Know how electrical power cables are designed, constructed and installed
- Understand how the low voltage system in a house is connected
- Identify the difference between grounded and ungrounded systems
- Know the difference between touch potentials and step potentials
- Completion of the electrical power engineering principles course
- You should be familiar with basic electrical knowledge of voltage, current & power
Electrical utilities around the world generate and transmit electrical energy that we all use for our everyday lives.
This course starts off covering some basic subjects which are needed so that you can understand how the electrical power equipment's are designed, operated and installed.
We then go on to study all of the main equipment's that go in to an electrical power system, before finally seeing how the power network itself is designed and operated.
The course consists of the following sections :-
- CONDUCTORS AND INSULATORS
- CIRCUIT BREAKERS
- NETWORK DESIGN
- LOW VOLTAGE SYSTEMS
- ELECTRICAL CABLES
- OVERHEAD LINES
At the end of the course you will understand all of the main elements within a power utilities network and understand how they operate together as one seamless system.
Who this course is for:
- This course is suitable for anyone interested in learning about the electrical power networks that are used throughout the world
- Electrical engineering graduates who are interested in getting some practical experience on how an electrical power network operates
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 know 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.
