Quality of Electrical Supply
The Quality of Electrical Supply course will give a practical understanding of the principles, practices and problems associated with supply quality. This course will cover all power quality problems including voltage sags, harmonics, transients and light flicker.
19-20 April 2017, University of Wollongong
Quality of Electrical Supply (PDF 269 KB)
Following the course you will have gained knowledge and skills to assist you in the following:
Who should attend?
This introductory course is suitable for all individuals working in the electrical power engineering industry. This includes managers, utility specialists and technical staff who wish to advise customers on power quality concerns, or who service large customers or who wish to understand aspects of network design, construction and maintenance techniques for maximising quality of supply. Personnel working in all areas of power system design who wish to know how the system interacts with the end-user will also gain from this course.
Applied Power Quality: Harmonics, Unbalance & Voltage Sags
Participants will learn advanced analysis techniques and methods of improving power quality by both network and plant modifications. Course participants will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through discussion and laboratory sessions.
8-9 June 2017
Following the course, participants will be able to:
Who should attend?
Utility specialists, consultants, engineers and senior technical staff who wish to advise customers on power quality concerns, or who service large customers or who wish to understand aspects of network design, construction and maintenance techniques for maximising quality of supply. The course assumes the participants will have an understanding of phasor calculations, simultaneous equations and Fourier analysis.
Grid Connected Renewable & Distributed Generation
This course will give a practical understanding of the principles, practices and problems associated with grid connection of renewable and distributed generation (DG). Further areas covered in the course include the operation, control and protection of generation-rich electricity distribution networks, network planning and reliability aspects for facilitating integration of these new generating units.
20-21 July 2017
By attending the course, you will gain knowledge and skills to assist you to:
Who should attend?
Managers, utility specialists and technical staff who wish to advise customers on renewable energy integration, or who provide services to large clients, or those who wish to understand aspects of network design, construction and maintenance techniques for maximising renewable energy penetration. Graduates, end-users or personnel working in all areas of power system design who want to understand how the system interacts with DG, will also benefit from attending this course.
Continuing Education courses are offered at all levels. These range from
The Centre, together with the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, has access to considerable experience at running practical modular short courses for Industry and several are planned in the power quality area.
