Electric Power System Protection

Electric Power System Protection

Bandung | June 8-11, 2010 | IDR 7.250.000,-/ Person



Construction of generation plants, transmission and distribution of electrical energy systems is a costly business. At both levels of national grid systems and local industrial plants, two important aspects are at the heart of this strategic industry. These are the reliability of energy delivery to meet customers’ demands and safe operation. At different stages of energy processing i.e. at the generation, transmission and energy delivery stage, protection of personnel and equipment is of prime importance. To achieve these goals, protection schemes are to be employed. The philosophy adopted in any protection scheme is to clear faults with a minimum system disruption, at a high speed, and in a simple and economical way. The course deals with different types of protection schemes used in large networks and those adopted in industrial plants. It describes some of the important components such as relays, comparators and other protective gears, and techniques and calculations used for their settings. The course also reflects on recent development and what are new in this important field of electricity industry.


The following sees the benefits from this course:

On organizational level

  • It introduces the subject of protection as an art where technical and economical constraints are to be met and compromised to achieve certain engineering requirements.
  • Learn to develop and manage well-protected plants that lead to a higher security, less outages and hence better profitability.
  • The course introduces new technologies used in relaying systems such as microprocessor and computer relaying which put organizations at the forefront of modern electricity industries.
  • Helps organizations in making appropriate decisions at times of system expansion or in situations where new developments become necessary.
  • Help organizations to understand causes of system failures, means available for remedies and hence better system management and operation with minimum investment.
