PSEC four-week programs are designed for industry professionals looking to improve their knowledge in a particular field of study. To have a successful learning experience, a well-balanced curriculum that reconsiders engineering theory, focuses on relevant power systems applications and examines current industry issues is advised. PSEC courses use the latest industry software allowing participants to completely appreciate subjects through case studies while others spend some time in our power labs or on area tours/visits to help understand applications and gain practical knowledge.
This inclusive program focuses on key Power Systems Engineering Courses, starting with Power Systems Fundamentals and advancing to Protective Relaying and Reactive Power Compensation and Voltage Control. Participants will develop their expertise in Power Engineering while understanding major aspects of associated Systems. Participants traditionally attend the following program, (Power System Planning and Advance Applications), upon completion of this quarter.

FIRST QUARTER COURSES
Full First Quarter
Aug. 7, 2017 - Aug 31, 2017• $11,000
Power Systems Fundamentals
Aug. 7, 2017 – Tuesday Aug. 8, 2017 • $2,020
Learn more about today’s energy solutions, including an introduction to power markets. Review fundamental concepts in electric power, generation, power delivery, and integrated system operations. Learn about issues such as reliability, performance and potential bottlenecks or limits on the system that can impact trading, and gain an understanding of key power market fundamentals.
Power Systems Analysis and Symmetrical Components
Aug. 9, 2017 – Aug. 11, 2017 • $2,555
Study electric Power Systems Analysis fundamentals—from evolution of alternating current power concepts to analysis of unbalanced faults on large electric power systems. This course delivers a foundation for further work in electric power systems engineering and operation.
Transmission Planning and Analysis
Aug. 14, 2017 – Thursday Aug. 17, 2017 • $2,750
A detailed look at transmission and its key role in the overall energy delivery system is essential when planning expansion. Steady-state power flow analysis and dynamic simulations show how to interpret results using the analysis tools. The impact of deregulation on the power industry is introduced.
Surge Analysis and Equipment Application
Aug. 21, 2017 – Aug. 23 AM, 2017 • $2,320
Learn about switching and lightning surges, overvoltage control and protection, and coordination of overvoltages with equipment insulation to ensure safe and reliable design. Participants also will learn how to quantify transient voltage stresses from the electrical environment.
Reactive Power Compensation and Voltage Control
Aug. 23 PM, 2017 – Aug. 25, 2017 • $2,320
Find out how reactive power—when properly coordinated with the reactive needs of the load—facilitates improved power factor and voltage regulation. Case studies on the effect of reactive power on voltage regulation and power transfer at the transmission level are highlighted.
Protective Relaying Fundamentals
Aug. 28, 2017 – Aug. 31, 2017 • $2,750
Gain an analytical understanding of the application of components of power system protective relaying. Learn engineering best practices required to protect transmission, distribution, and rotating machinery systems.
