Modern electrical power systems increases the efficiency of electrical power generations, transmission and distribution it also lower carbon footprint for a greener world. It includes the ‘green generation’ of electricity by means of renewable energy. In addition the introduction and merits of the Smart Grids and Micro Grids are also discussed in the seminar. The determination and control of fault levels, active power, reactive power, voltage and frequency are essential in a modern electrical power system. Power quality issues are also addressed by modern mitigation techniques.
This online training seminar will highlight power system stability incorporating the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) which has evolved to a mature technology with high power rating. This technology has wide spread application, became a top rate, most reliable one, based on power electronics which are now present in the digital substations. Quick and efficient of fault clearance are achievable by incorporating the reliable numerical protection in the electrical system to ensure high degree of safety.
By the end of this online training course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the various types of renewable energy generation, transmission and distribution
