Study substation design subjects at a level appropriate for those relatively new to the field. Get an introduction to technical requirements, configuration philosophies, design practices, information sources and work processes. Learn the fundamentals of electrical, civil and structural design issues of electric power substations.
This program is presented as an introductory course on the fundamentals for the electrical, civil, structural design issues of electric power substations. Topics will cover safety, standards, site development, grounding practices, bus configurations, AC and DC ancillary systems, and major equipment.
The course will address a complete variety of substation design subjects at a level appropriate to those relatively new to the area of substation design. It will introduce technical requirements, configuration philosophies, design practices, information sources, and work processes. Issues related to reliability, safety, security and maintainability will be underscored. Emphasis is placed on practical issues important in developing an engineered solution. After this course, one will have a broad foundation upon which one can base the development of new, and the upgrade of existing, substation facilities.
This course will also provide an introduction to electrical substation engineering for non-electrical engineers, as well as a civil and structural introduction for non-civil / structural engineers.
