Power System Engineering Training
The Power System Engineering training course (for detailed course outline CLICK HERE) lays the basic foundations of electrical systems, transient and steady state analysis, main components of power systems, electrical machines, high voltage direct current system, active/reactive power control in power systems and power system operation.
Our instructors at TONEX will teach you the history behind the power generation and the fundamentals of electric circuits including; Kirchhoff’s voltage/current laws, concept of power and energy, nodal and mesh analysis in electrical circuits, and maximum power transfer capability. Taking this course will also help you to setup the transient and steady state analysis for different types of electrical circuits (resistive, inductive, capacitive or combined). You will also be able to differentiate active, reactive, apparent, and complex power in power system engineering course.
The Power System Engineering training course also will discuss the different components of a power system from generation side to the customers. Different types of generation units including solar, wind and synchronous generators will be introduced. By the end of the training, you will be able to understand the different types of electrical machines in power engineering. Furthermore, the concept of high voltage direct current (HVDC) and multi terminal HVDC will be taught. The audience will understand the ideal active/reactive power and frequency/voltage control in power systems and will be able to explain different types of compensations in power systems to improve the control. Our instructors at TONEX will teach you the importance of power factor and methods of power factor compensation as well as harmonic mitigation in power systems.
Finally, the Power System Engineering training course will briefly discuss the power system operation and market including: Energy concepts, Generation/Transmission operators, ancillary services, regulators and future markets.
