Our Annual Australian Power Control & Protection Course is based on the renowned Basler Electric Power Control & Protection Conference with some adaptations for the Australian power generation market.
Who should attend?
New and experienced Electrical Engineers and Technicians involved in the Design, Application and Maintenance of Excitation, Synchronising, Paralleling and Protection Systems for Generators. If you are a member of Engineers Australia, this course will entitle you to log 20 Hours of your annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
What will you learn?
- Synchronous Generator Principles
- Excitation System Principles of Operation
- AEMO Grid Connection & Rules (Eastern Courses)
- Western Power Connection & Rules (WA Courses)
- Generator Protection Philosophy
- Designing an Excitation System
- Application of Excitation System Componentry
- Tuning a PID Controller
- Power System Stabiliser Theory
- Typical Excitation Retrofit Applications
To ensure the best interaction with the presenters, the number of participants is limited so we encourage you to confirm your participation as soon as possible. Enrolment is based on registration and receipt of payment on a first-come, first-served basis. We look forward to welcoming you and to providing you with the latest and most detailed information you will need for your present and future Power Generation Control and Protection applications.
