/  Power System Blackouts (Cause and Preventive Measures)
All courses in Munich have been cancelled .
BMC Training provides on 3 May 2020 Power System Blackouts (Cause and Preventive Measures) course [Electrical and Power Engineering Training] in Munich,Germany

Course Description

Major blackouts are caused by failing to conduct rigorous long term planning studies of the electrical system; and neglect to conduct appropriate multiple contingency or extreme condition assessment. Also the lack of sufficient voltage analysis and use of operational voltage criteria that do not reflect actual voltage stability conditions and needs can lead to catastrophic blackouts. Reliability requirements and standards must be followed during the system operation. The security of the transmission system must be ensured under all conditions. Usually major blackout can result in major loss of revenue, business interruptions, communication interruptions, security and bad quality of supply.

Course Objective

To provide electric system planners, designers and operators with concepts, tools and methodologies essential to address modern-day issues of competition, open access, wheeling and new technology in system planning
How to improve the quality of supply in A.C power system
Necessary steps to prevent cascading blackouts
