Power System Protection training course

Power system protection training courses

This four day training course addresses all the main topics and trends relating to power system protection. It provides the knowledge and guidelines needed for the design and setting of modern power system protection systems.

Power system protection systems play a crucial role in establishing reliable electrical power systems. Poorly designed protection systems may result in major power failures. Due to the increasing importance of electricity, such power failures can have a serious impact on society and the economy. 

Knowledge of power system protection systems is key when it comes to optimising the reliability level of electrical infrastructures. With the advances in protection and communication technology in recent decades plus the strong increase of renewable energy sources, the design and operation of power system protection systems has become ever more challenging. 

This course presents the fundamentals of power system protection and its application. A very “hands-on” approach is used to teach the concepts. Understanding is then reinforced with real world examples. Interaction is encouraged between participants and the presenters, to underpin the learning objectives. 


For whom?
This course is designed for technical professionals working in transmission or distribution network operator companies, consultancy organisations, in large industries or government organisations involved in design, engineering, commissioning or maintenance of protection systems. It is recommended that participants have at least a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
