Short Circuit Analysis (SCA)

Short Circuit Analysis

COURSE OVERVIEW

In this course, students learn to accurately predict current levels essential for equipment selection, protection and evaluation. The course is intended for engineers, supervisors, electricians and technicians that are involved in equipment selection/evaluation and protection of industrial and utility power systems. The results of short circuit studies are also used in predicting incident energy (arc flash hazard levels) and completing a comprehensive protective device coordination study.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is intended for engineers, supervisors, electricians and technicians that are involved in equipment selection/evaluation and protection of industrial and utility power systems. The student should have basic knowledge of power system equipment and mathematics.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe the types of studies performed on power systems.
  • Summarize the purpose and methods used when performing a short circuit analysis.
  • Perform mathematical operations on vectors, phasors, complex numbers, and matrices, and explain their application in the performance of a short circuit analysis.
  • Utilize mathematical tools to perform short circuit analysis.
  • Recognize the basic types of power system short circuits, and their configuration.
  • Use SKM to create a power system model and to calculate short circuit currents based on fault models.

REQUIREMENTS

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.
