Power system design are crucial for a safe and secured electrical power utilization. It begins at the generation stage, where electricity is generated. The design of the generation of electricity are migrating from the conventional fossil fuels to the renewable green energy namely solar, wind and hydro. At the transmission stage electricity travel kilometers of energy by either overhead or underground systems. With the presence of renewable energy grid integration, they are now possible by maximizing the electrical power demand. This will also reduce carbon emissions and global warming potentials.

Digitalisation has paved the way for smart electricity distribution via the smart grid and micro grid. Digital substations include substation automation using intelligent electronic devices (IEDs). The purpose of substation automation is to optimize the management of capital assets and enhance operation and maintenance efficiencies. In addition, by removing human interventions from the operation of substations, companies reap the benefits of long-term fiscal savings, with the presence of internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).

This Power System Design and Smart Utility Solutions training course will highlight:

  • The concepts and methods of electric power generation
  • The overhead and underground transmission systems
