  • Course details

Protection systems are very important components to ensure the safety, reliability and quality of supply of power systems.

In the event of a malfunction, protection systems can isolate the faulty components while keeping the functioning parts of the power supply system in operation. Efficient protection systems can detect and isolate faults or exceptional situations within milliseconds to seconds. Backup protection devices are installed to improve the reliability of the protection system.

This course focuses on:

  • The electrical behaviour of protection devices and photovoltaic generation systems
  • Grid calculation methods
  • Protection system planning principles
  • Protection testing
  • Compliance monitoring

Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • explain the general purpose of protection systems in distribution grids;
  • name the basic principles of protection systems;
  • identify the different impacts of renewables' integration on grid protection scheme design;
  • identify the most important differences in grid protection systems between low and medium voltage grids;
  • explain the different kinds of protection systems that are in use today;
  • describe the different calculation methods used in protection system planning; and
  • derive key success factors for effective protection planning principles taking into account distributed PV power generation.

This course is suitable for those whom:

  • have an advanced knowledge of electrical engineering;
  • are involved in the distribution grid operation; or
  • want to understand how protection systems have to change if large amounts of distributed generation such as photovoltaic power are to be connected to the grid.
