Power Transmission & Distribution > Transmission Lines: Design, Analysis and Applications

About this Training Course

Transmission lines and sub-stations are essential components in the electrical power systems. Proper design and maintenance are crucial for transmission lines to maintain a continuous operation. The objective of this 5-day training course is to deal appropriately with control systems, design characteristics and electric & magnetic fields. Participants will gain a better understanding on the corona and gap discharge phenomena, constructional features, and optimization of the transmission lines.

By participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand transmission line design and its application
  • Examine different types of conductors and electrical characteristics
  • Explore basic and general transmission line parameters
  • Prevent overvoltage through insulation design
  • Determine surge impedance and corona effects
  • Calculate and measure electric and magnetic fields
  • Comprehend the impact of audible noise and electromagnetic interference
  • Identify interference within the transmission line systems

The course will greatly benefit the following groups but not limited to:

  • Electrical Engineers
  • Civil Engineers
  • Transmission & Distribution Engineers
  • Substation Operators
  • Safety Engineers
  • Reliability Engineers
  • Facility & Plant Engineers
  • Technical Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Plant Supervisors
  • Electrical Contractors
  • Intermediate

The training instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process. This method ensures that all participants gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered. The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught in their own organization.

Course Duration: 5 days in total (35 hours).
