Electric Power Transmission &Distribution Engineering

Category: Aci Code Requirements And Specifications For Concrete Design, Construction And Repair Training

Course Description

Power transmission and distribution infrastructure connects, cities countries, power plants, urban area and rural areas to electrical power. Smart grid infrastructure requires demand response, grid interconnects, energy management systems and energy storage. This training course in Dubai will include the conventional overhead and underground transmission and distribution systems.

The training course will also look into the micro grid which is a discrete energy system consisting of distributed energy sources including demand management, storage, and generation and loads capable of operating in parallel with, or independently from, the main power grid.

The relevant equipment like transformers, switch gears, circuit breakers will be discusses so as to provide an efficient and safe electric power transmission and distribution systems.

This training course will feature:

  • The conventional overhead and underground transmission and distribution systems
  • The smart grid network
  • The micro grid system
  • Power transformers
  • Circuit breakers
  • Protection relays and switchgears
