Industrial System Protection

Author: Velimir Lackovic

The development of industrial and commercial electrical power systems has created the need to improve their reliability. The costs associated with outage time costs have also increased dramatically. The use of automation systems in industry and commerce requires advanced power system automation to enhance their overall reliability and efficiency. Careful attention must be given to the protection and control of industrial electrical supply systems.

Many technologies that have been developed for EHV electrical systems may be used in lower voltage systems but usually on a reduced scale. Nevertheless, industrial electrical systems have many particular issues that need special attention and the development of custom solutions.

This course is suitable for engineers who need to understand protection strategies that are applicable to industrial systems. This course covers the protection of different equipment such as motors, feeders and transformers. It provides a detailed description of MCBs, MCCBs, fuses, different circuit breaker technologies and relays provided. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address industrial system protection basics is terms of available protection technologies, methods, protection arrangements and their application to typical design configurations.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty-five (35) questions to earn 7 PDH credits
