Fundamentals of Power System Operations is a three module training course program that provides comprehensive training on the fundamentals for performing the following job duties: power system dispatcher, fossil fuel generating station switchboard, and control operators hydroelectric generating station switchboard and control operators. Each of the three training modules is conducted independently and is two-and-one-half-days in duration.
Module one consists of a review of basic algebra and trigonometr; measurements for voltage, current, and impedance; capacitance and inductance; resistance, reactance, and impedance; Kirchoff's laws; real and reactive power flow; and AC power application and problem solving.
Module two involves a review of basic electricity; electrical systems elements and devices; power flow concepts; generation control; system operation economics; system constraints; and voltage control techniques.
Module three deals with system performance characteristics; effective dispatcher communications; routine hazards and safety concerns; generation of system equipment dynamics; recognition of emergencies; emergency measures ; and system restoration.
This series of three courses is intended for power plant and system operators in the control rooms as well as any other personnel involved in the business of electric power control and dispatch. Participants gain an understanding of dynamic system events and are prepared to make decisions to maintain the security and integrity of their generation and transmission systems.
