This course is designed for engineers who need a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and solutions for protecting medium-voltage, utility-type distribution systems.
PROT 403 provides an overview of the principles, schemes, and devices for protecting medium-voltage distribution feeders and buses. The course provides basic guidelines for overcurrent device coordination in radial systems. It also covers the application of negative-sequence overcurrent and directional overcurrent protection in distribution systems. The course discusses the effect of load and distributed generation sources on protection. It also provides guidelines for fast service restoration in distribution systems.
Note: This course teaches fundamental knowledge but does not provide hands-on experience with SEL relays.
At the conclusion of this course, students can:
