Distribution System & Transmission Line Protection

PROT500 is an extensive course covering almost all commonly used protection schemes applied to very large industrial facilities, utility distribution systems and transmission lines.

This course is a must for electrical engineers, electricians and electrical engineering practitioners seeking to further their knowledge in the field of relaying, protection & control of power systems.

This course incorporates traditional as well as modern techniques in power system relaying. Students will learn from live lectures from a practicing professional engineer with international experience. This course will discuss theory, exercises as well as practical applications.
