The course is certified by SIEMENS and consists of the following:

Training Objectives
The participants will obtain extensive knowledge of power systems and the correlations between the individual power transmission and distribution components. They will learn to understand the engineering, application and tasks of the components of a power system, like transform,e brusbar, line and cable as well as associated power system tasks as protective relaying. We will provide in-depth information on the configuration and application of components of an electrical power supply system and the tasks and fundamental principles of power system protection.

Target Audience
Employees of power plants, power supply utilities/industrial sector and individuals interested in technical fields who want to obtain a fundamental understanding of processes in electrical supply systems or refresh their technical knowledge.

Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering.
