APP 3530: SEL-3530 Real-Time Automation Controller (RTAC)

Overview

This course is intended for engineers, technical consultants, and technicians who have an understanding of:

  • Boolean, math-based, and IEC 61131-3 logic.
  • Power system topology and architecture.
  • SEL relays, communications methods, and protocols.

The APP 3530 course is designed to be highly interactive and activity-based. During APP 3530, in groups of two, you will configure a realistic communications scheme using the SEL-3530 RTAC. Each section of this course will guide you, step by step, through configuring this communications scheme.
