Open Enrollment and Onsite Availability

Protective Device Coordination for Utilities | Hands-On Training Course

3-Day | 2.4 CEUs | $1,685 | Hands-on | Course #147 | 8 am-4:30 pm 

The goal of protective device coordination is to allow for normal equipment operation, ensure circuits open before equipment is damaged and limit outages to the smallest area through selectivity. These studies are used to verify correct equipment ratings and settings as well as assist in the selection of new equipment. A properly coordinated power system can prevent equipment damage and lost productivity.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate a protection system for reliability, selectivity, speed, simplicity and economics
  • Utilize SKM to create and modify one-line drawings and time current curves (TCCs)
  • Interpret TCCs and damage curves
  • Explain the application of directional, impedance (distance), differential, carrier, pilot wire, under-frequency and ground overcurrent protective relays
  • Calculate CT burden impedances
  • Coordinate protective relays for ground fault and line protection using SKM PTW software
  • Identify common protection schemes for generators

The student should have basic knowledge of power system equipment and mathematics. In addition, students must bring a laptop to complete the lab portion that has Windows XP/Vista/7, 600+ MHz processor, 4+GB hard drive space, 1+GB RAM, a CD-rom drive, and rights to install SKM PTW Captor 30-day trial software.
