The Electrical Demand Side Management (EDSM) training course will provide an understanding of electricity demand-side management (EDSM) systems and the technologies they use, the motivating factors driving their introduction and how they were introduced and installed.

This training course will provide a sound grounding in demand-side management that will help tackle similar issues facing you or company in the future.

Additionally, you will gain a wide-ranging appreciation of the various elements that make up effective electricity demand-side management installations from identification of their need, the range of technologies available or soon to be on the market, how to ensure buy-in from participants, marketing the ideas through to installation and monitoring. Delegates are encouraged to participate by active involvement in group discussions and sharing experiences.

This Energy Training Centre training course has been designed to give engineers and other professionals a sound grounding and understanding of electricity demand-side management:

  • Gain a better understanding of demand-side management and its application in real world practice
  • Understand how it has been used and applied in other environments
  • Obtain the benefits that can accrue from the effective control of load
  • Appreciate issues for generation, and transmission and distribution networks of unrestrained load growth
  • Learning from examples and question and answers

Each Electrical Demand Side Management (EDSM) training course participant will receive a copy of the comprehensive training course notes. The presenter will outline and discuss the topics using presentations, questions and answers and short films. The training course is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily sessions. Case studies and examples will be discussed in the daily sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to discuss with other delegates and the presenter their specific problems and appropriate solutions. Only minimum note taking is encouraged to ensure maximum delegate attention during the course.

The Electrical Demand Side Management (EDSM) training course will allow delegates to interact and gain from shared experiences of others. Carefully selected examples and case studies will be used to illustrate the material being discussed and in particular, emphasis will be given to ensure that the material is appropriate to the organization represented. Each delegate should leave with an awareness and understanding of their roles and responsibilities in the workplace in relation to electrical safety.

On successful completion of this training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Develop a structured knowledge of different types of faults and their effect
  • A deeper understanding of what issues arise from AC networks
  • Better understand of what may cause electrical accidents
  • Provide examples of issues that they encounter during their normal working activities and possible solutions
