29.01.2017 - 02.02.2017
$ 2600


Course Objective:

             • To ensure participants develop their existing knowledge and are acquainted with latest

                 developments in Power System Protection
             • To ensure participants Interpret system faults from protection system alarms and

             • To ensure participants will be able to determine the necessary corrective actions 
             • To ensure that information and instruction are in safe operating procedures in electrical

                protection schemes, including elements of maintenance of HV and LV protection relay systems.


Who Should Attend:

              • Engineers and Technicians from Electrical Transmission and Distribution Utilities or

                  Major Consumers with Power Distribution Networks, such as those for oil and gas

                  production, who are directly involved in the design, specification, purchasing, maintenance

                  or day to day Operation of System Protection. 
              • It is also of great benefit to personnel who require a broad understanding of power system

                  protection due to their employment in related activities, e.g. government agencies, loan

                  agencies etc.
              • Design, Marketing and Project Management Personnel from manufacturers of power

                   system protection equipment should also benefit greatly from the course.
