About the course

Take your understanding of the electric substation to a higher level. In this course, you will learn about the equipment that makes up an electric substation, including the equipment’s operation, control, and wiring.

You’ll also learn how to read trip and close schematics, and control system wiring diagrams. Understanding how these schematics relate to their corresponding wiring diagrams will help you design straightforward control system schematics, and make you more effective on the job.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the construction, operation, and control of power transformers, load tap changers, voltage regulators, power circuit breakers, circuit switchers, and capacitor banks
  • Enumerate the types and purpose of power systems
  • Discuss protective relays, trip schematics and wiring diagrams, auxiliary equipment and systems, metalclad switchgear, substation automation and integration, batteries, and battery charges
  • Explain schematics, voltage regulations, power circuit breakers and prepare wiring diagrams
  • Carryout substation commissioning
