The participants will deepen the basic knowledge of electrical power systems and the correlations between the individual power transmission and distribution components obtained in Part 1. They will learn about the tasks of power system components such as generators, transformers, motors, lines, cables and busbars.

We will provide in-depth information on the configuration and application of components of an electrical power supply system and the tasks and basic principles of power system protection.

Employees of power plants, power supply utilities/industrial sector and individuals interested in technical fields who want to obtain a basic understanding of processes in electrical supply systems or refresh their technical knowledge.

Basic knowledge of physics, preferably electrical engineering, course “Transmission and Distribution Networks – Basics Part I (PE-TDNET1)”.
