This popular one-day course presents a high-level, yet clear understanding of the technical heartbeat of the utility by providing employees with a comprehensive understanding of electric utility system operations, including generation (fossil fuel, hydro, and nuclear generation), transmission, and distribution (down to 120v/240v residential connections). You will learn how all key pieces of equipment in the system are built, how the equipment operates, and how the equipment functions in the overall operations of a utility system. The course assumes no electrical background and builds on the basics to provide a comprehensive understanding of the equipment and operation of the electric utility system.
In addition to the above, the course will also cover:
- Demand and load curves
- System frequency
- Load shedding and outages
- Power and demand factors
- System and equipment protection
- Safety, including step and touch potential
If you work with the electric distribution system, then consider taking the more in-depth course titled Electric Distribution System after this course.
