Course Description

Introduction

Major blackouts are caused by not investing into your infrastructure, failing to carry out enough planning, lack of contingency planning and not analyzing your power system voltage requirements and operational conditions correctly. With any transmission and distribution system, reliability of the system is fundamental to preventing power outages and to ensure that regional and national assets are protected. The result of not planning and preventing power outages can have dramatic effects such risk to life through essential services such as supplies to Hospitals, Businesses not being able to function correctly, loss of revenue, unacceptable power quality and telecommunication transmission problems. This GLOMACS online training course has been designed to ensure that you understand these issues and furthermore, can plan ahead to mitigate the risks to your power infrastructure.

This online training course will highlight:

  • Power quality and risks with instability
  • In-rush/cold rush effects
  • Voltage control and regulation
  • Blackout/power outage prevention
  • Power system reliability
  • How Blackouts occur
  • Voltage and frequency concerns
  • Load shedding

Objectives

  • Elaborate on the causes Power Blackouts
