Industrial Systems Protection

The Industrial Systems Protection 3 hour PDH online course is a part of the Electrical category courses.

Development of industrial and commercial electrical power systems has also introduced the requirements for their improved reliability. The possible outage time costs have also dramatically increased. The introduction of automation systems into industry and commerce requires application of advanced power system automation in order to enhance overall reliability and efficiency. Careful attention has to be given to the protection and control of industrial electrical supply systems.

Many technologies that have been developed for EHV electrical systems may be used in lower voltage systems but usually on a reduced scale. Nevertheless, industrial electrical systems have many particular issues that need special attention and the development of custom solutions.

This course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand protection fundamentals that are applicable to industrial systems. Presented details cover protection of different equipment such as motors, feeders and transformers. Description of MCBs, MCCBs, fuses, different circuit breaker technologies and relays is also provided. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address industrial system protection basics is terms of available protection technologies, methods, protection arrangements and their application to typical design configurations.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course you will gain the following knowledge and skills:

  • Typical industrial system busbar arrangements
  • Protection elements including fuses, industrial circuit breakers, MCBs, MCCBs, ACBs etc.
  • Typical coordination issues
  • Automatic changeover systems
  • Voltage and phase reversal protection
  • Power factor correction and protection of capacitors
  • Time/current grading of different protection elements
