Overview

Registration closed for this run. Sign up for the next run in Mar 2020 HERE.

Faults are inevitable in power systems even with careful design, operation and maintenance. The short-circuit fault currents can be many orders of magnitude larger than normal operating currents and, if not interrupted promptly, may cause unacceptable damages and wide-spread outages. Good design of power distribution system should incorporate suitable protection schemes and relay settings to ensure that faults are quickly disconnected to minimise damages and to permit continuous operation of other healthy circuits.

This comprehensive 3-day course is intended to provide a broad-based and yet in-depth coverage of the various important issues related to power system faults and their protection. Fundamental principles will be developed first upon which applications will be illustrated.
