This course teaches the principles of protection and control for power distribution systems, using the concept of protective devices such as relays, CTs, PTs, circuit breakers and current injection equipment. Current injection equipment is used to simulate opening of circuit breakers. Different protection schemes for transformers, motors, feeders and generators are taught. Arc flash concept is also introduced in this course. Easy power software is used to conduct power flow, short circuit, and protective device coordination studies for a given single line diagram by using either the data collected from various sources or from the data base developed by easy power, the provider of the software.
