Industrial System Protection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH addresses the industrial protection of different equipment such as motors, feeders and transformers. It presents MCBs, MCCBs, fuses, different circuit breaker technologies and relays.


Development of industrial and commercial electrical power systems has also introduced the requirements for their improved reliability. The possible outage time costs have also dramatically increased. The introduction of automation systems into industry and commerce requires application of advanced power system automation in order to enhance overall reliability and efficiency. Careful attention has to be given to the protection and control of industrial electrical supply systems.


Many technologies that have been developed for EHV electrical systems may be used in lower voltage systems but usually on a reduced scale. Nevertheless, industrial electrical systems have many particular issues that need special attention and the development of custom solutions.


This 4 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand protection fundamentals that are applicable to industrial systems. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address industrial system protection basics is terms of available protection technologies, methods, protection arrangements and their application to typical design configurations.
