Distance Protection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the basic theory and terms of distance protection, as well as distance protection zones, characteristics and relay applications.


Distance protection, is a non-unit protection arrangement providing significant financial and technical benefits. Unlike phase and neutral overcurrent protection arrangements, the key benefit of distance protection is that its short circuit current coverage of the protected element is almost autonomous of source impedance changes.


This 4 PDH online course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of distance protection.
