Electric Facilities Design
The course addresses a complete variety of substation design subjects at a level appropriate to those relatively new to the area of substation design. It introduces technical requirements, configuration philosophies, design practices, information sources and work processes.
- describe electrical blueprints,
- analyze current transformers,
- analyze voltage transformers,
- analyze substation technical requirements,
- choose substation elements (busbar, switching devices, transformers, cables, grounding),
- apply knowledge about substation system design.
Forms of Teaching
Lectures will be held two hours a week with the use of PowerPoint presentations and overhead projectors.Seminars
During semester, students will create one seminar.
