PROT 401: Protecting Power Systems for Engineers

Overview

Engineers who need a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and solutions for protecting electrical power systems should attend this course.

PROT 401 provides an overview of the principles and schemes for protecting power lines, transformers, buses, generators, and motors, and introduces the fundamentals of wide-area protection. The course provides basic guidelines for relay application and settings calculation. It also reviews basic power system concepts and describes instrument transformers.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, students can:

  • Identify the challenges and solutions to power system protection problems
  • Select the appropriate protection schemes for various applications
  • Analyze power system faults for balanced and unbalanced conditions using symmetrical components
  • Describe current and voltage transformers and their impact on protection scheme performance
  • Identify, apply, and calculate settings for distribution and transmission line protection schemes, including overcurrent, directional overcurrent, distance, and pilot protection schemes
  • Identify, apply, and calculate settings for transformer, bus, and breaker failure protection schemes
  • Identify, apply, and calculate settings for generator and motor protection schemes
  • Identify and apply wide-area protection schemes, such as power swing blocking, out-of-step tripping, and load shedding

Course Requirements

Prerequisites

A degree in electrical engineering or equivalent experience is required. In addition, students should have:

  • A basic knowledge of power systems
  • A working knowledge of ac three-phase electrical circuits, trigonometry, basic calculus, complex numbers, and phasor concepts

Recommended reading:

  • We recommend any electric machinery book of your choosing that covers transformers, synchronous generators, and induction motors
  • We recommend any power system analysis book of your choosing that covers per-unit quantities, symmetrical components, and fault analysis
