Electric Power Distribution System For Industrial Plants

Electric Power Distribution System For Industrial Plants

One Week
What you will learn

Electric power distribution system plays an important role in the efficient operation of a modern industrial plant. Such a system includes high voltage circuit breakers, switchgear, transformers, motor control centers, electric motors, variable speed drives, etc. A trouble-free electrical system is essential for an interruption-free plant operation. This course will cover all aspects of power distribution, including system planning, equipment selection and application, system grounding, protection and conformity with electrical code requirements, etc. Participants will work under instructor guidance to develop a power distribution system single line diagram for a typical industrial plant.

  • Plan your system and select equipment for it.
  • Benefit from a clear understanding of all aspects of power distribution system
  • Apply the Electrical Code to your projects
  • Deal with the important issues such as load estimating, voltage selection, shortage circuit studies and power protection
  • make your distribution system more efficient by applying your new knowledge of the power distribution system and equipment
