  • You should be familiar with basic electrical knowledge of voltage, current & power

Electrical utilities around the world generate and transmit electrical energy that we all use for our everyday lives. This course starts off covering some basic subjects which are needed so that you can understand how the electrical power equipments are designed, operated and installed.

We then go on to study all of the main equipments that go into an electrical power system, before finally seeing how the power network itself is designed and operated.

The course consists of the following sections:

  • Conductors And Insulators
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Grounding
  • Network Design
  • Low Voltage Systems
  • Electrical Cables
  • Overhead Lines
  • Transformers

At the end of the course you will understand all of the main elements within a power utilities network and understand how they operate together as one seamless system.
