Industrial System Protection
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Typical industrial system busbar arrangements
- Protection elements including fuses, industrial circuit breakers, MCBs, MCCBs, ACBs etc.
- Typical coordination issues
- Automatic changeover systems
- Voltage and phase reversal protection
- Power factor correction and protection of capacitors
- Time/current grading of different protection elements
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Industrial System Protection”.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty five (25) questions to earn 4 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the entire document.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
