Participants will learn the basics of generator protection combined with hands-on training using actual relays. Laboratory exercises will cover proper relay maintenance, specific test procedures, and detailed adjustment and calibration procedures utilizing state of the art relay test sets. Participants learn the applicable NETA testing standards, what test result information should be recorded and what hand tools are necessary for proper relay adjustment and calibration.
Understanding proper relay maintenance procedures will ensure that the generator and prime mover are protected from damage and are operating within prescribed boundaries. This course provides the understanding of generator protective zones and their associated protective relays.
This course is developed to challenge test technicians who want to thoroughly understand generator and unit protection and the testing, calibration, and maintenance of generator protective relays.
The Protective Relay Maintenance Generation course is an intensive, hands-on, lab oriented presentation covering:
The student should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity. In addition, students must bring a scientific calculator. Technicians that successfully complete this course will be certified to maintain electromechanical relays that protect generators. This certification is valid for 3 years from the date of issue.
This course is required for our Generation Protective Relay Maintenance Technician Certification Program.
