Two Day Course: Introduction to Modern Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems (New York City, United States - March 22-23, 2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Introduction to Modern Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Even when a utility company successfully recruits a young engineer, two years or more may pass before he or she can work independently. Why? Because college graduates lack practical knowledge of how a utility company actually works. They are unfamiliar with management aspects of the business. As a result, even the most gifted young engineers must spend months informally "learning the ropes" before they can become true contributors.

This course will substantially accelerate that acclimatization process by providing future project engineers with a basic knowledge of applied engineering in a utility company. It will teach them the project management aspects of modern Transmission and Distribution (T&D) systems as well.

This is the same "real-life" orientation a new utility engineer might receive from his or her supervisors and co-workers. Only it has been structured to provide a rapid and comprehensive overview, with a close connection to real-life specifics, plus exercises and practice sessions to ensure better retention.

What You Will Learn:

  • What the main components of modern transmission and distribution systems are, their application and arrangement
  • How to perform various calculations used in T&D system design and engineering
  • How to use the tools and principles of modern project management to ensure overall project success

You Will Also Learn:

  • How power systems are arranged, their main elements, and the place of each element in the overall structure
  • What substation consists of, the function of each piece of equipment
  • The role of protection systems and the criteria they must need
  • How to analyze the reliability of power supply systems
  • The advantages and disadvantages of various substation switching systems
  • How to select substation equipment
  • Types of transmission power lines and the main steps of their design
  • Why reactive power and voltage in T&D systems need to be regulated, the necessary equipment, and how it should be selected
  • The makeup of a low-voltage distribution system and how to design it
  • The purpose of grounding and lightning protection in T&D Systems and how they should be arranged
  • Critical success factors for T&D project management
  • How to scope projects, prepare realistic estimates and schedules, evaluate risk and include contingencies
  • How to make project communications more efficient, procure high-quality equipment and services at reasonable costs, and ensure overall project success through effective control
