Fundamentals of Measurement Transducers and Synchronizers

Author: Velimir Lackovic

The precise measurement of voltage, current or other power system parameters is a requirement for any automation and control process, ranging from automatic closed-loop control to data sampling for statistical needs. Measurement of these parameters can be achieved in a variety of ways, including the application of direct-reading devices and electrical measuring transducers. A wide range of measurement instruments are used to gather information and convert it into a format that can be used by the operator. Typically, the instruments are classified based on whether they are utilized as local or remote devices.

This course provides an understanding of basic power system measurement techniques and instrument operation principles. It covers transducer characteristics and their inputs and outputs, instrument accuracy, transducer selection, tariff metering, synchronizers and disturbance recorders.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of forty (40) questions to earn 5 PDH credits
