|Modules to Choose Classes From
Module 100: Fundamentals of Distribution System Apparatus*
This module provides instruction in basic distribution apparatus theory and application. Students will learn electrical fundamentals and power theory along with how the equipment works. This session should be attended by those who need to gain a better understanding of the components in an electrical distribution system. This module will help the student establish a good foundation for future classes.
Module 200: Principles & Applications of Distribution System Apparatus*
This module provides a more in-depth look of the individual distribution apparatus equipment used in the substation and on the distribution feeders. The sessions will emphasis why the equipment is used and how the equipment functions. Distribution equipment included in sessions will be regulators, breakers, transformers, capacitors, arresters, and reclosers along with classes on the insulating mediums used.
* Module 100 & 200 will be combined this year.
Module 300: SCADA and Communications
This module provides instruction on the principles and equipment of a SCADA system used for the monitoring and control of an electrical distribution system. This year includes session in Cybersecurity, DNP3 Applications, NERC CIP-014 Requirements, Feeder Automation, Fiber Optics, MPLS and TETRA for Utilities.
Module 400: Engineering Topics and Emerging Technology
