Introduction to Switching Transients Analysis Fundamentals
This online engineering PDH course begins with a discussion of the switching transient phenomena, describes root causes, and explains how system operation is affected. It offers a detailed explanation of modelling and calculation procedures. It covers selection and sizing of surge arresters. It describes techniques which can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.
Switching transients severe enough to cause problems in industrial power systems are most often associated with inadequate or malfunctioning breakers or switches as well as the switching of capacitor banks and other frequently switched loads. The arc furnace system is most frequently studied because of its high frequency of switching and the related use of capacitor banks. By properly using digital computer programs, these problems can be detected early in the design stage. In addition, digital computer programs can be used to analyse other system anomalies such as lightning arrester operation.
This 5 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of switching transient analysis.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the basic theory behind switching transients analysis studies
- Learning how switching transients affect power system operation
- Understanding the consequences of excessive switching transient levels and what mitigation measures can be applied
- Learning about commercial software modelling techniques, simulation performance and interpretation of the results
