Event Details

  • Deregulation and technical changes increase the need by utility engineers for better information. This course helps fill some of those needs in the area of electric distribution systems.
  • The first two days of the course focus on the equipment-oriented information and applications such as choosing transformer connections, sizing and placing capacitors, and setting regulators. Day three and four of this course cover reliability and power quality.
  • The performance of the distribution system determines greater than 90% of the reliability of service to customers (the high-voltage transmission and generation system determines the rest). If performance is increased, it will have to be done on the distribution system. At the last day of this course, we tackle lightning protection, grounding, and safety. Safety is a very important consideration in the design, operation, and maintenance of distributed facilities.
  • The last two sessions of day five on distributed generation provide information to help utilities avoid problems caused by the introduction of distributed generation.
  • This course provides many tools to help address the challenges of providing a more reliable distribution system given significant cost constraints. In addition to a wealth of classic information on distribution practices, the course provides new insights based on recent research by EPRI, the Consortium for Electric Infrastructure to Support a Digital Society
