Power System Protection

Power System Protection

Power, Utility & Energy

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Comprehend protective relaying philosophies and choose appropriate protection strategies
- Understand how electromechanical relays work and how they are emulated by microprocessors
- Design a properly-coordinated overcurrent protection system for a radial distribution system
- Properly specify instrument transformers for protection applications
- Design protection schemes utilizing differential and distance relays, including pilot protection


Day 1: Introduction, Math Review, Symmetrical Components, and Sequence Networks
Day 2: Electromechanical and Digital Relays, Relay Schemes for Radial Systems, Time-Coordinated Over current Protection
Day 3: Relay Schemes for Networked Systems and Device Protection
Day 4: Effect of Protection on Reliability
Day 5: Arc Flash Hazard and a Look to the Future


This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. These methods include workshops where attendees practice solving problems (bring a scientific calculator), case studies where concepts covered are applied to real-world situations, and simulations and animations to visually illustrate what would otherwise be abstract concepts in a novel and intuitive manner.
