POWER DISTRIBUTION ENGINEERING COURSE

The Boston Chapter of the IEEE Power and Energy Society is conducting a 10-hour course on Power Distribution Engineering that will provide fundamental understanding of electric circuit analysis with application to power distribution systems. It presents an introduction to the various types of distribution system configurations, equipment and loads. Discusses concerns such as: reliability, power quality, voltage drop, voltage regulation, power factor correction, underground cables, AC Networks and capacitor applications. Reviews the fundamental methods used in the steady state analysis of AC circuits as applied to power distribution systems including: linear circuit elements, complex numbers, matrices, network solution methods, three-phase power systems, the per unit system, symmetrical components and fault currents.
