Introduction to Power System Operation Training Course – Hands-on
Introduction to Power System Operation Training course simply teaches you how the electricity is generated in power plants and what steps are taken in order to deliver the generated electricity to the customers with high reliability. Several control approaches are introduced for the generators in order to achieve stable operation of the power system. This course discusses the modern control approaches implemented for generators to maintain the voltage and frequency within the limits. This course not only focuses on the generation side, but also covers the transmission level by introducing the concept of power flow as an advanced tool to calculate the operating points in the power system.
