Grounding in Electrical Power Distribution Systems Courses
Explores the complex topic of grounding, essential to any power system, not only to protect equipment but the public at large. An introductory module looks at why we ground, how abnormalities arise in power circuits, and how the human body tolerates electricity. We then examine typical grounding systems, grounding system components, and the design of ground grids.
Who should take it: Anyone who is new to power distribution and power systems engineering, or who needs to refresh their understanding of power distribution fundamentals.
Job Positions include: Field Technicians; Distribution Line Workers; Designers; Engineers; Utility Managers; Engineering Managers; System Engineers, Operations Managers; Safety Managers; Communication Line Workers; and Electric Utility Contractors.
