This course is part of a series of three courses on power system protection. This first two-day session lays the basis for the remaining sessions and is also an introduction to protection technology for engineers new to the subject. Basic concepts are explained including fault current calculations. The session also includes an introduction to communication technology.

Besides this course, two other sessions have been developed that address the following topics: 
>Overcurrent & earth fault protection (a three-day session) 
>Differential and impedance protection (a three-day session)

The courses have been developed in cooperation with several DNV GL - Energy experts in this field. For more information, please refer to the brochure.

The courses will be run in 2012 on dates yet to be determined. Please send us an e-mail if you are interested in these courses. We will then keep you informed on the dates.

Upon request, DNV GL - Energy can also provide an in-house training course in English or Dutch (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client's wishes). Please contact us for more information.
