Power System Fundamentals for Engineers by TONEX

Power System Fundamentals for Engineers training course (For complete course outline, please CLICK HERE) will help you to understand the basic concepts of electricity generation , circuit analysis, power plants, generators, power delivery and power market.

Our instructors at TONEX will teach you the history of power generation aligned with the basic theory behind the circuit analysis in AC/DC systems. This course discusses the different components of a power system including the generation units (power plants) , transmission level (transmission lines and substations) and customers (loads). By taking this course, the audience not only will earn the basic concepts such as: power factor (PF), root mean square (RMS), Kirchoff’s law, magnetic material and induction machines, but also will learn about operation principle of governors, boilers, cooling towers, and turbines.

Power System Fundamentals for Engineers training course gives you a sufficient knowledge to understand the operation of synchronous generators as the main components in electricity generation by introducing the magnetic theory and simplified electrical models. Furthermore, power delivery topics including: transmission line modeling, HVDC transmission, reliability challenges in power delivery and customer demand are introduced during the training.

Finally, our instructors will introduce the power system operation and market concepts including: Energy definition, Generation/Transmission operators, ancillary services, regulators and future markets.
