PSEC 2018


Power Systems Engineering

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.
