COURSE TITLE: Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
COURSE NO: E02-019
Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents details that address IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types, arc resistant ratings, and testing procedures according to IEEE standards.

 

Arc flash resistant equipment may be described as the equipment made to withstand the impact of internal arcing fault by meeting the testing requirements of IEEE Guide C37.20.7-2007. In the 1970s, an interest started in Europe in assessing electrical equipment under internal arcing, which lead to IEC standard. This research spread to North America and was used as a foundation for EEMAC G14-1 procedure. The development of IEEE standard heavily relies on Annex AA of IEC standard and adopts many of the refinements originated in EEMAC G14-1 procedure. IEC 62271-200 defines the requirements for factory assembled metal-enclosed switchgear and control gear for alternating currents at rated voltage above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV. It includes indoor and outdoor assemblies and frequencies up to and including 60 Hz.

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Electron Tubes
COURSE NO: E05-002
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Introduction to Electron Tubes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of Vacuum Tubes, explaining the basic theory, evolution and applications.

 

An electron tube is a device used for the processing of electrical signals. It consists of two or more electrodes inside a metal or glass tube which has been evacuated. Because a vacuum must be provided in the form of an evacuated enclosure in which the electrons can move without collisions with gas molecules, these devices are also called vacuum tubes or electron tubes in the US, and thermionic valves in Britain.

 

Although solid state semiconductors have replaced the electron tubes in most applications, there are still niche applications where electron tubes not only continue to see practical use, but perform their respective tasks better than any solid-state device. For example, tubes are still used in some high-power amplifiers, especially at microwave radio frequencies and in some hi-fi audio systems. There are a lot of items that still use electronic tubes such as medical equipment, communication equipment, test equipment, televisions, radios, welders, and many others.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding of electron tubes.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • State the principle of thermionic emission and the Edison Effect
  • Identify the schematic representation for the various electron tubes and their elements
  • Understand the theory of operation associated with the diode, triode, tetrode, and pentode
  • Understand the construction of various tubes and describe the purpose of various tube elements
  • State the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of electron tubes
  • State the limitations of  the electron tubes
  • Describe amplification in the electron tube and how amplification is obtained
  • Explain biasing and the effect of bias in the electron tube circuit
  • Describe, through the use of a characteristic curve, the operating parameters of the electron tube
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 1 of Module 6 titled "Introduction to electron Tubes" of the Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 14178), Electricity and Electronic Training Series.

COURSE TITLE: Low Voltage Switchgear
COURSE NO: E03-039
Low Voltage Switchgear
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on low voltage switchgears, their types, applications, selection and classes according to relevant standards. It addresses definitions of MCCBs, insulated case circuit breakers, power circuit breakers and fused power circuit breakers. It also addresses different monitoring and protection packages.

 

Low-voltage switchgear is typically used name for metal-enclosed or metal-clad low-voltage power circuit breaker switchgear rated for 600V alternating current (AC) and below. The metal-enclosed switchgear is completely enclosed on all sides and top with metal sheets and has stationary primary power circuit switching or interrupting elements, or both, with buses and connections. The metal-clad low-voltage switchgear has removable circuit breakers which are housed in individual earthed metal compartments.

 

This 3 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of low voltage switchgear technology. Upon successful completion engineers will have solid understanding of the low voltage switchgear technology, overcurrent protection mechanism, selection and application of the low voltage equipment, assessment of low voltage breakers service life and reference to relevant international standards.

COURSE NO: E05-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Radar Fundamentals
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of the fundamental principles, concepts and definitions of radar systems.

 

The term Radar is an acronym made up of the words radio detection and ranging. The term is used to refer to electronic equipment that detect the presence, direction, height, and distance of objects by using reflected electromagnetic energy.

 

Modern radar systems are used for early detection of surface or air objects and provide extremely accurate information on distance, direction, height, and speed of the objects. Radar is also used to guide missiles to targets and direct the firing of gun systems. Other types of radar provide long-distance surveillance and navigation information.
