This course covers the fundamentals of power system protection with a focus on the principles of current fault analysis. The purpose is to provide the students with the knowledge of fault current analysis principles.
- fault types, earthing methods and zones of protection
- PU system and representing of quantities
- symmetrical components
- sequence impedance diagrams
- symmetrical fault analysis
- unsymmetrical fault analysis.
The course will show you how to analyse and determine the fault current levels for different types of faults in a power system network. It will cover relevant theory and hands-on practical examples.
On completion of this course delegates will be able to:
- understand fundamentals of power system protection
- demonstrate how to determine both symmetrical and unsymmetrical power system fault current values
- demonstrate the use of complex numbers
- demonstrate how to deconstruct a network into its sequence components.
