Power System Basics and Emerging Technologies for Non-Power Engineering Professionals


This is the third run of the “Basics” series of courses for non-power engineering professionals organised by
IEEE Power & Energy Society (Singapore Chapter).

The power system has played a very important role in our nation building and economic growth. Everything that impacts our lives, from where we live to where we work, from our government to our infrastructure, is dependent on a secure and reliable supply of electricity. With the liberalisation of electricity industry and the increasing understanding of the importance of a reliable, secure and efficient power system in contributing to sustainable developments in the economy, society and infrastructures, such as transportation, water supply, etc., more and more non-power engineering professionals who work in or with the electric power industry are required to have a basic understanding of the power system, how it operates or how it is evolving with the emerging trends leading to a smart and intelligent grid. This Power System Course is designed with such needs in mind and is focused on the power system in Singapore.

Who Should Attend:
This course is designed for those who work within the electricity industry in a non-power engineering capacity, or are transitioning to the electricity industry from another industry. Others who would benefit from the course are those who work with the electricity industry, such as board members, business executives, energy traders, energy service and large electricity consuming company staff members, government officials, regulatory or legislative staff members, public affairs administrators, media professionals, lawyers, economists, accountants, business consultants or anyone with an interest in learning about the power systems upon which we all depend.
