This course presents an overview of all the components of modern electrical transmission and distribution (T&D) systems, their application and arrangement, describing all their major, auxiliary and control equipment, listing typical engineering issues associated with T&D systems design and engineering and providing recommendations for addressing these issues. This course is based on a “down-to-earth” delivery, which is achieved through a very tight connection of material with real life power industry specifics, and emphasis on exercises and practice sessions.
