About the course

The course presents a systematic approach to the basics of electrical control. It first adopts a general approach to the main control elements, the method of primary control. Then it explains what is meant by open loop and closed loop systems... PLC construction, operation, different types, and its use in different electrical utilities are presented with many applications. The power Circuit drawings and its associated control circuit drawings will be deeply involved in this course with some applications in industry.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participant will be able to:

  • Understand the basic electrical control and its applications.
  • Understand PLCs and its application in electrical utilities and different aspects of industry.
