Courses and Descriptions

PWRS-2490Power Systems 2

This course is designed to introduce basic concepts in power circuit protection. It discusses various switchgear apparatus and protection relays used in power systems (HV and MV). Fault current calculation will be covered for both balanced and unbalanced systems. An introduction to power quality will be presented and awareness of SCADA systems will be introduced and discussed. PSCAD (EMTDC) software will be introduced to simulate fault current and voltage waveforms for analysis purposes. Instructions consist of five hours per week, part of which will be devoted to labs on protection relay setting and applications and PSCAD simulations. Co-requisite: CODE-2000 Electrical Practice and Design.
