Electrical Systems

Description

Students will familiarise themselves with the operation and behaviour of electrical power systems. The course introduces participants to the physical and electrical properties of equipment used in power systems, and the analytical techniques used in their planning, operation and evaluation. The course will provide students with the opportunity to develop a range of skills necessary to analyse, plan, design and operate the various equipment used in power systems.
