Short Circuit Analysis

Open Enrollment and Onsite Availability

Short Circuit Analysis | Hands-On Training Course

4-Day | 3.2 CEUs | $1,695 | Hands-on | Course #138 | 8 am-4:30 pm

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.

Learning Objectives

Identify and explain the application of common power studies including short circuit, load flow, stability, motor starting, harmonic analysis, switching transient, cable ampacity, ground mat analysis, arc flash analysis and protective device coordination

  • Perform fault vector analysis
  • Convert system values to per unit
  • Develop fault impedance networks with symmetrical components
  • Model three-phase, phase-to-phase, phase-to-phase-to­­-ground, and single line-to- ground faults
  • Use impedance networks to manually calculate fault currents (point-to-point method)
  • Use SKM to create a power system model and to calculate short circuit currents based on fault models

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.
