وصف الدورة

Course name: Electrical Phenomena & Challenges to Transmission


This course gives an overview of electrical phenomena and how a transmission system works. The chapters progress the learning through the basics of the grid, through system planning, the equipment and basic principles of overhead and underground transmission and substations, and system operations. The course concludes with a look at challenges the industry is facing today and into the future, some of international R&D to meet those challenges, followed by a course assessment covering all the material in the course.

Course Objectives:

  • Describe the aspects of the electricity supply chain –from generation to the end-user.
  • Discuss how the transmission system has evolved to a complex, interconnected system regulated by multiple stakeholders.
  • Name and describe the functions of the various equipment and components that operate throughout the transmission system.
  • To present fundamental concepts of compensation of transmission networks.
  • To discuss the state-of-the-art of power electronics equipment available to transmission engineers to improve the operation of the said networks.
  • To become familiar with latest developments in transmission systems
  • In addition, the principles learnt from this seminar can be applied into work environment where known problems of operating the network can be studied and dealt with the equipment discussed and presented in this seminar.
  • Describe how the transmission system is planned, protected, and operated.
  • Discuss how the transmission system is changing over time and consider the challenges that are impacting the future of the grid.

Who Should Attend:

  • Transmission design engineers
  • Experienced engineers and those recently assigned to transmission line projects
  • Electrical and mechanical engineers working in the electrical power industry
  • Consulting engineers
  • Design and drafting technicians

Course Outline:

  • Introductions to Electrical Phenomena.
  • New challenges affecting the technical and business operation of the system.
  • Transmission interconnections, the need for such interconnection.
