Online Courses for Transmission System Operations

7509 Monitoring and Control Communications

The objective of this course is to look at different modes of communication that are employed in operation of the transmission system. Communication applications are demonstrated with particular emphasis upon the SCADA system as employed for system operation. After completion of this course and associated workbook, the participant should be able to understand the following concepts and apply them in day-to-day working activities.

7503 System Voltage Control

This third course in the Transmission System Operation training program develops the principles of voltage control on the transmission network. The material builds upon discussions of power flow fundamentals and transmission line characteristics from the two previous courses.

7501 Review of Fundamentals

Review of Fundamentals The objective of this course, the first in the series on transmission system operation, is to review relevant fundamentals of electricity to provide a firm foundation on which to build an understanding of the more advanced concepts which will be presented as the program progresses.

7502 Power Transmission

The main objective of this course, the second in the series on transmission system operation, is to draw attention to the major features of transmission system equipment, and operation of transmission lines. Particular attention is paid to limitations resulting from the effects of resistance, inductance, and capacitance of the lines.

7504 System Frequency and Tie-Line Control

The fourth course in the Transmission System Operation training program shows how frequency and tie-line flows between control areas are controlled. We begin by developing the concepts of an AC interconnection and synchronizing forces. Frequency deviations come about when unbalances develop between generation and load and these deviations are controlled by the combined action of speed governors and Automatic Generation Control (AGC) aided by the natural change in load as frequency changes.

7505 Power Dispatching

The objective of this course is to present and discuss the various factors which must be taken into consideration when dispatching generation. Although most of the technical factors will remain after deregulation, it is probable that some aspects of dispatching will change to accommodate the competitive market for generation. This subject will be dealt with later in the program.

7506 System Security

System Security is the focus of this 6th course in the Transmission System Operation training program. The concept of operating security is developed as the ability of a power system to withstand or limit the adverse effects of any credible contingency, including: overload beyond emergency rating, excessive or inadequate voltage, loss of stability, or abnormal frequency deviation.

7507 Operating Under Abnormal Conditions

he previous courses in this series have mainly dealt with the elements of the power system when it is operating in its normal state. This course extends that knowledge into some of the abnormal situations that can occur on the power system and describes how different pieces of apparatus can act under those conditions. Several actual incidents are described.

7508 System Restoration

System Restoration The earlier courses in this series have mainly dealt with the elements of the power system when it is operating in its normal state. The previous course extends that knowledge into some of the abnormal situations that can occur on the power system and describes how different pieces of apparatus can act under those conditions. Several actual incidents are described. This course extends that discussion to the situation where the system or a part of it collapses and the possibilities for system restoration.

7510 Transmission System Protection

The objective of this course is to examine the function of protection schemes from the point of view of the transmission system operator. Details of the major types of protection relays are discussed with the emphasis on function rather than mechanical construction.

7511 The Effect of Deregulation on Operations

The objective of this course is to look at the aims of deregulation, and the consequent changes being introduced into transmission system control and operation. Subsequent courses present and discuss specific rules, and procedures required to implement deregulation.

Duration: 4.0 Hour(s) • Cost: $85.00 • Learn More →

7512 Power Dispatch Under Deregulation

The objective of this course is to focus attention on the factors that must be considered when dispatching energy and ancillary services under competitive market conditions. Procedures are indicated for a typical ISO, noting that detailed methodology will vary with different locations. After completion of this course, the participant should be able to understand and apply the following concepts in day-to-day work activities.

7513 Transmission Control

In the late 1990s the electrical power industry is going through a rapid period of change. The opening of the transmission systems to competition among generators and the splitting of vertically integrated utilities have changed the structure of the industry. The widespread blackout in northeastern North America in 1965 provided a great impetus for cooperation among utilities. With the advent of competition this has been replaced by the need for confidentiality. In this course we examine some of the implications for transmission system control brought about by these changes.

7514 Interconnection Operations

The objective of System Control is to bring about an orderly flow of power from the generating source to the load (power consumer) while maintaining the utmost level of safety, reliability and stability throughout the system.
