E-053 Switching Transients Analysis Fundamentals: 4 PDH
Description of the Switching Transients Analysis Fundamentals course
The Switching Transients Analysis Fundamentals 4 hour PDH online course is a part of the Electrical category courses. Switching transients severe enough to cause problems in industrial power systems are most often associated with inadequate or malfunctioning breakers or switches and the switching of capacitor banks and other frequently switched loads. The arc furnace system is most frequently studied because of its high frequency of switching and the related use of capacitor banks.
By properly using digital computer programs these problems can be detected early in the design stage. In addition to these types of switching transient problems, digital computer programs can be used to analyse other system anomalies such as lightning arrester operation.
This course begins with a discussion of the switching transient phenomena, describes root causes and explains system operation is affected. A detailed explanation of modelling and calculation procedure is offered. Selection and sizing of surge arrester is covered in details. Explained techniques can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.
This course is suitable for all electrical engineers and other construction professionals interested in learning about switching transient analysis.
This online PDH course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understand basic theory behind Switching Transients Analysis Studies
- Explain how switching transients affect power system operation
- Describe power system switching studies fundamentals
- Understand typical circuit parameters for transient studies
- Understand system modelling and interpretation of the results
