Modern Electrical Power System

REF: L12332  DATES: 18 - 22 Mar 2018  VENUE: Muscat (Oman)  FEE: 2500 



The course starts by reviewing current practice to establish a sound understanding of the underlying principles of power system transmission, distribution, operation and control. Next are considered the developments that are taking place as a result of new forms of generation, load interconnection, fault level limitation and numerous advances in system innovation. The manner in which the new technologies are implemented is related to geographical location, sites requiring additional power, government strategy and technical motivation for change. Not all power systems will advance at the same rate, but all will take advantage of the benefits of technology to a greater or lesser extent, thus improving the overall electrical efficiency.

The course aims to make candidates aware of improvements that technological advances makes possible and to consider implementation these on their system, whether it be a utility, a large end user, or an industrial islanded system. Asset management, DSM, non linear loads, harmonics and on line diagnostics of plant are also considered, as are ways of improving the utilization and efficiency of system plant.


Upon Completion of this Course, participants will have knowledge about :

  • The operation and power flow characteristics of small large networks and how the network can be arranged to deliver more real power over the transmission system to the load centers
  • The form and use of a range of FACTS devices to improve system operation
  • Fault level limiting devices
  • New CT and VT optical transducers and protection relaying system using microprocessor configured relays
  • To deal with non-linear loads and the problem of Harmonics, at the PCC (point of common coupling)
  • Protection systems for thermal monitoring of cable networks
  • Alternative forms of generation and embedded generation. Carbon emission limiting, etc.
  • Diagnostic monitoring of plant and in particular GIS substations
  • Advances in power electronics and the application of back to back HV-DC links on stability
  • High speed fault limiters and real time stability monitors
  • Demand side management



This course is designed for Participants those who involved with the planning, operation and maintenance of small to large scale power networks. Designers, Engineers and Technicians from Distribution Companies, Power Utilities, Engineering Professionals in the Electricity Supply Industry and Petrochemical Companies who have to deal with aspects of generation, transmission and distribution should be interested in learning how to handle increased demand.
