Early Bird Registration Ends April 11, 2017!
The focus of this course is to provide participants with knowledge of how electric power is transferred from generation sources to distribution systems via the interconnected electric bulk power system known as "the grid." Basic physical laws governing the grid will be introduced, as well as the regulatory agencies involved in its governance. The great blackouts will be explored. This course is intended to increase participant's understanding of the electric grid and how it functions in the electric power system.
A high level understanding of the electric utility industry is recommended as prerequisite for the Transmission System course.
IEEE PES PLAIN TALK courses for the power industry professional will help you to understand technical aspects of the electric power industry, even if you do not have an engineering background. You will gain insights into the concerns of engineers, the demands of regulators and consumer groups, and the factors and trends that impact the operation of today's electric power systems.is course will provide you with the fundamental concepts of power, energy, and power system stability as they relate to the grid and enable you to apply that knowledge to your job so you can work more effectively.
A copy of the instructor's PowerPoint slides is included. Access to the streaming video recording will be available to all registrants through May 23, 2017. The course runs from 8 am to 5 pm. The course is eligible for 0.8 CEUs / 8 PDHs continuing education credit.
