COURSE TITLE: Radar Fundamentals
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.

COURSE TITLE: Improving Motor and Drive System Performance
COURSE NO: E06-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Improving Motor and Drive System Performance
Course Highlights

This online PDH course presents the basics of motor and drive systems and briefly describes important terms, relationships, and system design considerations. It also provides a roadmap for finding opportunities to improve motor performance, as well as exploring the economics of motor systems.

 

Electric motors, taken together, make up the single largest end use of electricity in the United States. In the U.S. manufacturing sector, electric motors used for machine drives such as pumps, conveyors, compressors, fans, mixers, grinders, and other materials handling or processing equipment account for about 54% of electricity consumption.

 

To achieve cost-effective operation and maintenance of a motor and drive system, operators must pay attention to the entire system as well as to its individual components. Often, when investigating efficiency opportunities, operators are so focused on the immediate demands of this equipment that they overlook the bigger picture, which includes the ways in which system parameters affect all the equipment.

 

This 6 PDH online course is intended for electrical and mechanical engineers, contractors, manufacturers, building professionals and others interested in learning more about improving motor and drive system performance.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Detecting the indications of a poor system design

COURSE TITLE: Arc Flash Hazard Calculations in DC Systems
COURSE NO: E03-035
Arc Flash Hazard Calculations in DC Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents details cover issues related to DC fault calculation, DC protection equipment and DC arc flash energy calculation.

 

IEEE 1584 standard does not discuss arc flash hazard calculations in the DC systems. Standard NFPA-70E- 2000 provides a short calculation method. Therefore, the current literature is lacking calculations of arc flash hazard in DC systems. The necessary calculation steps are very similar to calculations in AC systems, however there are marked differences, particularly with respect to protection, cause of short-circuit currents in the DC electrical systems, and the current interruption devices in DC systems, which function fast to limit the energy let-through.

 

This 3 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand DC system fault calculation followed by DC system arc flash calculation. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address DC system fault calculation methodologies, basics of the DC protection equipment and methods to calculate incident energy in DC systems.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the DC system fault calculation methodology
  • Learning about short circuit current calculation of DC elements such as batteries and rectifiers
  • Learning about DC circuit breakers and fuses
  • Knowing how to calculate incident energy in DC systems
  • Learning about the protection of semiconductor devices
Course Document

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Protective Device Coordination Analysis
COURSE NO: E04-030
Introduction to Protective Device Coordination Analysis
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to protective device coordination analysis in a very structured fashion. First, a modelling technique is shown for a generic power system, protective relays are modelled in detail, and relay settings are determined based on short circuit current calculations. A detailed explanation of modelling and calculation procedures is offered. Illustrated techniques can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.

 

The objective of a protection scheme in a power system is to minimize hazards to personnel and equipment while allowing the least disruption of power service. Coordination studies are required to select or verify the clearing characteristics of devices such as fuses, circuit breakers, and relays used in the protection scheme. These studies are also needed to determine the protective device settings that will provide selective fault isolation. The goal is to achieve an optimum balance between equipment protection and selective fault isolation that is consistent with the operating requirements of the overall power system.

 

This 4 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to learn about the analysis of protective device coordination.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the basic theory behind protective device coordination studies
