The Power System Dynamic Analysis and Symmetrical Components Training course will help you to understand the basic concepts of complex power, per-phase analysis, modeling of power system components, power flow analysis, fault analysis, and symmetrical components.

The power system dynamic analysis and symmetrical components training course simply teaches you the definition of complex power, active and reactive power, and the fundamentals of the three phases balanced system. Moreover, taking this course will help you to understand the concept of per unit system, per phase analysis, and the difference between time domain analysis and phasor domain analysis.

Upon completion of the power system dynamic analysis and symmetrical components, you will have sufficient knowledge to understand the main components of the power system including; generators, transmission lines, transformers, circuit breakers, disconnectors, and different types of loads in power systems. Moreover, design considerations for improving reliability and efficiency will be introduced with examples of voltage and frequency control. By taking this course, the audience will be introduced to the power flow analysis and dynamic models for the main components of the power system (such as generators, transformers, and transmission lines).
