Gas Insulated Substation Control and Monitoring

Gas Insulated Substation Control and Monitoring

Author: Velimir Lackovic

This course presents an overview of gas monitoring, partial discharge tests, and circuit breaker monitoring. It addresses the topics of bay controllers and control diagrams as well as the fundamentals of gas monitoring, the types of faults that can cause partial discharges and details on partial discharge measuring procedures. Current and voltage transformer wiring including mimic schemes are presented. The function of the bay controller with all its basic elements is presented. Control diagrams of different mode selections and interlocking are provided and examples are presented.

This course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of GIS technology control and monitoring. Presented topics include the latest standards, regulations and relevant industry practice. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address basic control and monitoring principles, understand operation and control methods and tests that need to be completed before commissioning. List of the relevant standards for additional details is also included.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 6 PDH credits.
