Power Transmission & Distribution > Transmission Lines: Design, Analysis and Applications – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

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 half-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.

Following modules will be covered during this course:

  • Transmission Systems
  • Electrical Characteristics of Conductor Configuration and Circuits
  • Insulation Design
  • Lightning & Grounding
  • Electric and Magnetic Fields
  • Corona and Gap Discharge Phenomena
  • Electromagnetic Interference
  • Audible Noise
  • Corona Loss & Ozone
  • Shared use of the Right-of-Way
  • Power Analysis & Protection
  • Transmission Line Above 700 kV

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

Your expert course leader is a professional engineer with extensive experience in power system studies, substation design field-testing, and EHS programs settings for Mining and Electrical Utilities sectors. He was formally the Engineering Manager at GE Canada in Ontario. He received his M.Sc. in electrical engineering from the University of New Brunswick and his MBA from Laurier School of Business in Waterloo. He has managed and executed more than 150 engineering projects on substation design EMF audits and power system studies and analyses, EMF audits and grounding audits, for major electrical utilities, mines, oil and gas, data centers, industrial and commercial facilities in Canada and the U.S. He is a certified professional engineer in the provinces of Ontario and Alberta.

He has various IEEE publications, has served as a technical reviewer for many IEEE journals in power systems and control systems, and is the chair of the Industry Application Chapter (IAS) for IEEE Toronto Section. He remains a very active member for the IEEE substation committee of IEEE Std. 81 ground testing (WGE6) and IEEE Std. 80 ground design (WGD7). A certified electrical safety trainer by GE Corporate and a Canadian Standard Association (CSA) committee member at the mining advisory panel for electrical safety, he also taught many technical courses all over Canada to industrial customers, electrical consultants as well as to electrical utilities customers.
