Switching Principles for System Operators

This class provides students with the basic principles of switching high voltage and distribution equipment in and out of service under normal and abnormal conditions. Topics include: equipment types and capabilities, relaying issues related to switching operations, switching with various bus configurations, safety and potential hazards associated with switching, and communication between the System Operator and Switchman. Students will also be given hands on exercises to complete with hands-on simulators to reinforce the concepts presented in the class.

Each Student receives 16 CEH (EOPS 0, Simulation 0, Standards 0, Professional Related 0)
