BMC Training provides on 23 May 2021 Modern Electric Power Systems Design, Modelling, Analysis and Problem Solving course [Electrical and Power Engineering Training] in Paris,France

Course Description

A reliable supply of electrical energy is becoming increasingly important in modern industrial processes. A properly designed power system improves the performance of processes and electrical services throughout the plant. Increased dependence on electrical energy and introduction of new technologies and automation requires that the industrial power system is planned, designed and operated using the best available technology.

Course Objective

  • Delegates will gain a detailed appreciation of the following:
  • The operation and power flow characteristics of small and large networks and how the network can be so arranged to deliver more real power over the transmission system to load centres.
  • The form and use of a range of FACTS devices to improve system operation.
  • New CT and VT optical transducers and protection relaying system employing micro processor configured relays.
  • Protection systems for thermal monitoring of cable networks.
  • Alternative forms of generation and embedded generation. Carbon emissions trading, etc.
  • Diagnostic monitoring of plant and in particular GIS substations.
  • Advances in power electronics and the application to HVDC links
  • High speed fault limiters and real time stability monitors.
  • Demand side management
