Learn about transformer protection with this online course.
Learn how to design robust protection schemes for power transformers.
This course is part of a multi-part course series about one of the main areas of power engineering: power system protection and control. Power system protection and control ensures the reliable continuous operation of power systems and is therefore an essential area of power engineering. In this course, you will learn about the different protective elements used for the protection of power transformers.
We will begin the course by giving a brief review of how power transformers are connected and how they operate, so that we can understand why and how to protect them from faults and abnormal operating conditions. We will then move on to discuss in great detail all the different protective elements that are used in industry to protect transformers. These include: phase differential (87P), ground differential (87G), instantaneous and inverse-time overcurrent (50/51), neutral inverse-time overcurrent (51N), and volts/hertz (24). We will end the course by explaining how an SEL-487E protective relay can be used for the protection of a power transformer.
We are confident you will find out that this course is worth the investment, so we offer a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked.
