Course Summary

Protection and Controls (P&C) involves electrical power systems that deal with the protection of electric power systems for power generation, transmission, and distribution. This P&C course addresses the art of protecting the power grid against abnormal power system conditions while at the same time initiating certain corrective actions.

In this course, we explain the protection and control principles of high voltage stations HV Bus Differential Protection is studied, along with restrictions due to CT saturation and mismatch, and the applicable solution: restraint differential protection.

Starting with system faults and how they affect switchyard configuration & elements. Simple “differential protection” is examined along with the mal-operation due to CT saturation and mismatch. High-Voltage Circuit Breakers are examined as to the various types (Oil, Vacuum, Air Blast, SF6), their controls (Closing/Tripping/anti-pumping) reclosure syncrocheck relay CUH 90 – VG, as well as breakers failure protection, is part of this course along with a quick look at dynamic monitoring equipment. Transfer and remote tripping along with the need to provide immunity from ground rise potential and open-circuit situations.

How to get certified?

The rules vary between states, but state boards typically accept a continuing education activity that meets the following criteria: “A course or activity whose purpose and objective are clear with a content that will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee’s field of practice.” Online courses are accepted by all states that require engineering continuing education provided that the student passes a quiz to successfully complete the course, the quiz is graded, and the results are kept on file by the platform provider for a prescribed length of time (the number of years varies for each state).

Automatic certificate of completion can be generated after completing the course.

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz.
