This virtual, instructor-led course is an 8-hour training covered in two half-day sessions with a precourse technical check prior to the start of class.
vAPP FLISR introduces you to fault location, isolation, and service restoration (FLISR). Multiple solutions architectures are discussed, with a focus on the regional and centralized solution used as part of a distribution management system (DMS).
During the lecture sections, you will learn about the fundamentals of automation and FLISR and will receive comprehensive instruction on how to use the SEL DMS application suite. During the hands-on sections, you will work directly with various SEL DMS applications via SEL Blueframe virtual machines to gain real-world experience with FLISR. You will configure a three-feeder multiconnection topology, run simulated permanent faults for several scenarios, analyze reports to troubleshoot unexpected operations, commission the system, and practice post-commissioning activities.
This course is conducted live in the Webex platform with a teleconference or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) option for the audio component. Prior to the course, you will be assigned to a Blueframe virtual machine that is accessed using an authenticator app (e.g., Microsoft Authenticator). IMPORTANT: If you cannot use an authenticator app to access the virtual machine, you will not be able to complete the course.
This course is designed for protection, automation, and operations engineers and technicians at electric utilities or integrators who focus on distribution networks and create automated solutions to manage distribution systems. It is also suitable for electric utility operators and line crew members who are interested in why and how FLISR systems are configured and operated.
At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:
