An Introduction to High-Voltage Systems for Hydroelectric Power Plants

COURSE NO: E03-026
PDH CREDIT: 3
An Introduction to High-Voltage Systems for Hydroelectric Power Plants
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the high-voltage system in hydroelectric power plants. It describes equipment and conductors that carry current at transmission line-voltage, with their insulators, supports, switching equipment and protective devices.

 

A high voltage system is used for electric power transmission to reduce the energy lost in the resistance of the wires. It begins with the high-voltage terminals of the step-up power transformers and extends to the point where transmission lines are attached to the switchyard structure. High-voltage systems include those systems operating at 69 kV and above, as well as 34.5-kV and 46-kV sub-transmission-voltage systems.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for electrical engineers as well as other design and construction professionals interested in learning about high voltage systems for hydroelectric power plants.
