Course Description

Substations play an important role in a power system network in maintaining the continuity of power supply and power quality to the industrial and commercial consumers. The high voltage substation comprises of switching equipment, transformers, reactors, var compensators, protection, control, automation and communication. A properly planned and designed substation is essential for the reliable operation of power system network.

This course covers all aspects of high and medium voltage substation design including regulatory and environmental requirements, general design considerations, application of switching and power equipment, fault calculations, safe grounding design, protection/control, automation and communication, and maintenance considerations.
